Vietnam Memorial

While working in Washington DC recently, my wife and I took the opportunity to wander around some of the monuments and memorials.  I have seen these in books and on the news, but it was a totally different experience to see them in person.  The Vietnam Memorial was one of the places we visited.  While shooting this and the other monuments and memorials, I struggled with trying to find and create unique images.  (I just did a Google image search for "Vietnam Memorial" and it returned 4.3 million results.)  So, my question to you is: did I succeed in capturing this memorial in a unique way?

Images were created using the Canon 7D and the Canon 24-105mm f/4.0L IS lens.

  1. Re your first image: I find it incredible that what is perhaps your most sacred icon - the US flag - bears the statement that it is "made in China", and at a war memorial!

    But it's not your doing!
