She stands sentinel over our War Memorial. I have placed two images here, a wide angle shot with the E500 14/42mm and the close up with E620 70/300mm. The close up was processed in LightZone, the wide angle OOC.

While I like the scene and the lustre on the second image (of which I keep wondering why you did not shoot it in portrait orientation for a view that shows more of the statue), for the first image I cannot escape the feeling that the statue is skewered by a large flagpole.

One step to the left would have prevented that and would have placed the statue between the left and the second flagpole.

It's a typical example of "tree growing out of person's head" and I am sure that we have all slapped our forehead at not having noticed it while shooting the scene.   I know I have.
