    This is an awesome site to visit at night. It's located just to the right of the Lincoln Memorial and across the reflecting pool from the Vietnam Wall. The scene depicts the invasion of Normandy.

    These are great, as always. Makes me want to save up some money for a trip to DC. :)

    Along with saving money for a new camera, pay off my bills, new car..... :roll:

    Isn't it? Wow. As if they were real!
    And yes, the light in that soldier's face who's closest is very good.
    Now I'd need to know the English word for "Ausschnittsvergrößerung", then I'd ask you if you can't make one of those of that face only. Erm... Dictionary?

    'Enlargement' or 'crop' :) In English, you'd like to see just that face enlarged into its own photo

    Thanks, John.
    A crop is not necessarily an enlargement. But "my" German word really means what you're saying, that I'd like to see the face "enlarged into its own photo". Exactly :).

    like #1 a lot

    Jon, you must have used a tripod for this. I have read about photographs in DC using tripods having problems with the Park Police
