The statue of Stonewall Jackson at Manassas (or Bull Run) battlefield. I half wish I could clone out the trees (I don't think there was a position I could get into to eliminate them from the shot), but part of me thinks that helps emphasize the size of the statue and perspective. We shall see. Predicting a 5.2.

PP - converted from RAW, rotated a teensy bit (about 1.5 degrees), cropped, levels, increased saturation, decreased saturation on blue/purple range to make statue look more gray, added border, resized, USM.

I like the composition of this shot. The focus unfortunately is not great.

The focus in the image seems a tad soft, but the major problem lies in the fact that you took this image in the blazing sunlight. The presence of the sunspot does little to enhance this image, nor does the presence of the tree between the horse's legs. Good luck.

Well composed but white balance too cool and lacking in real interest.
