Canon 5D, 24-105 @ 50, f10, 10s. Some burning around the base and a few hot spots cloned out. Also, reduced the saturation on the greens and yellows to darken the tree leaves.

I understand the women looking into the light halo is supposed to be looking for a medivac helicopter. A much photographed sculpture, but still enjoyable to view. There are a few more pics from this and other war memorials at http://dbolt.smugmug.com/Photography/Monuments-on-the-Mall/12794036_29i7P#922238750_aSoFT

Thanks, Alfred.

The Mall will stir up lots of moods, especially at night. Some from the monuments and some from other sources...
