The names of 1,557 Americans who lost their lives in the Normandy campaign but could not be located and/or identified are inscribed on the walls of a semicircular garden at the east side of the main memorial in the American military cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer.

Hello Stephen - this is my kind of POV and perspective. Foreground interest from the flowers and great sweeping lines. Good subject matter too.
I might have been tempted to crop or clone out that little glimpse of grass on the left margin but hey we all see things differently.

Interesting POV, I like the curve. The flowers at foreground makes the image more interesting.

J'aime beaucoup la courbe du mur dans l'image qui offre une perspective exceptionnelle sur cet endroit qui est là pour que l'on se souvienne.

With dignity the place give honor to a sad story, yet to remember those brave soldiers.
The perspective taken, show the place on it's curved and carved wall.
Fine series, document with great history enfolded.

Hello Stephen - This is a poignant and powerful image. I think the clean, crisp composition is perfect for the subject and I like the way the memorial is enveloped by the planting of trees. The solitary floral tribute underlines the sadness that lied behind each name that has been etched here. Have a lovely evening Rosemary

J'espère que l'on se souviendra très longtemps de ces soldat disparus. Le monument est impressionnant et bien mis en valeur par la composition. Bonne qualité. Bravo.

for sure a sombre subject, but as a photograph is works well to present the subject on the slight curve like this.

Very fine composition. I like the lines and the colors. The presence of the flowers reminds us about the victims. Well taken, enjoy a good week.

Man what a visual impact this makes. Too many names, and to think that the parents of these poor young men couldn't even give them a burial. Wow, you just feel so humble in front of something like this. You composed the shot superbly, the perspective and curved lines are marvellous. I'm also glad that you left this in colour. There is a temptation to convert it to B&W (which I'm sure would work very well too) but the bluish tones to the wall are so beautiful and impact so dramatically on the luminous green grass.
Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
