Good effort with such a dull day Kristof.. A great pity the sun wasn't shining with blue sky because this would become a very picturesque scene.
Nicely composed and sharp image, good work..
Edited to say I would go for a tighter panoramic crop - less sand and sky..

that's well done, exposure, natural colors, all is fine, great brightness for a shot by a cloudy day
Excellent shot and note.
Beautiful colors and nice POV.
I did a WS and hope you don't mind.

Nice, very nice Kristof. The subjects are sharp.
I like the WS also. I think a crop would make it stronger, more focus on the subjects. Youre note is interesting but a little bit too long for me. ( i don't like to read very long notes ) tfs,

Good evening Kristof,
impressive shot...I got chills down my spine when looking at this image. If I only remember how many lives were lost here...
Read this lyrics...
"Nautical Disaster by The Tragically Hip"
I had this dream where I relished
The fray and the screaming that filled my head all day
It was as though I'd been spit there, settled in , into a pocket
Of a lighthouse off some rocky socket,
Off the coast of France, Dear
One afternoon, four thousand men died in the water here
Five hundred more were thrashing madly as parasites might in you blood
Now I was in lifeboat designed for ten and ten and only,
Anything that systematic would get you hated.
It's not a deal nor a test nor a love of something fated.
The selection was quick, the crew was picked and
those left in the water got kicked off our pant leg and we headed for home.
Then the dream ends when the phone rings
You doing alright he said it's out there ,most days and nights
But only a fool would complain
Anyway Susan if you like our conversation is as faint as the sound in my memory
As those fingernails scratching on the hull
Have a nice evening,

Hi Kristof, Omaha beach is quite an experience to visit. I like the statues erected on the beach. I think your cloudy day helps with the somber mood one feels while visiting this place. Well done! Lisa

a nice capture of modern art sculptures by the beach, Kristof.
they look like Aladin's sword....:)
the weather however was not to your advantage. i wish it could be better for a bluer sea water.

Hello Kristof,I love the way that the memorial sculpture breaks through all the thirds of the composition,wonderful work.
The colours are so natural.The light was perfect for showing all the sculptures' details.
Tfs, regards Jean.
