here is a monument that's on Bald Hill the highest point of Long Island . no clouds, moon or stars I tried to be a little creative by going into the trees and using HDR.

Normally I do not cc, but trying to expand my world :).
There is no sense of scale, it this a large monument, small monument? The framing makes the framing appear to be a few feet tall.
In the b&w version it detracts even more, the black leaves pull attention away from the spire instead of acting as a frame. Perhaps if you had a better angle, framing the momnument a little looser (ie branches not so close to left edge), and then crop out all but an edge of tree branches to frame it better?
Lastly, BW, not good on this colorful spire.

Hope this helps.


Some photographers WAIT for the action..we CHASE it!
More stuff than I care to have...
