Okay, so I'm breaking the rules a bit, but this is a pic of the Oklahoma City Memorial I took during my vacation in November.

I like the color shot better than the B&W although both have their problems. Obviously the color shot would look better without the lens flare. That is a case where a hood on the lens may have helped.

The B&W version needs a serious contrast boost. It looks washed out.

And here is another angle of the Memorial without lens glare. Had my hood with me, but left it in the car. :?

I like the last one... in the first, I would have no idea the memorial was that long... I though it was much smaller until I saw it from that other angle.

I remember that terrible day, and I was 1,500 miles away.

Can you educate as to what exactly the memorial is comprised of (I want to say chairs? but I dont think thats right)

It is indeed comprised of chairs to represent the office workers. There are even smaller ones representing the children. The chairs are placed by area of where the person died. At night it's an amazing sight because the bottom of each lights up. There is also a reflecting pool with the time before and after the blast stamp on large stone walls on each end of it. The reflecting pool represents the time of the blast. I believe this is correct, I could be wrong though.
