This is a powerful memorial seen in person, but a hard memorial to photograph, but I think the snow makes it a bit more interesting.

Beautiful, it almost looks as if someone is praying at the wall. It is the most moving tributes I have ever seen.

Been there and this image is grand! That curl of snow gives it a unique POV.

I think the reflections held in the memorial, particularly the brightness of the snow really does add to the image. As Susan says, the elongated shadow appears to be a person somewhat stooped and praying. A magic of the shadows.

Pied, you did an amazing job with this image! I have been there and know what you mean with "powerful." I cannot go down the long line without crying. Your shot should be in published it is THAT good. The reflections are perfect and so is the snow, also the path looks as if it is never ending. I am thinking now that winter seems to be a good time to go sight seeing in DC ( you had no tourists in the shot), but I bet it was very cold..

@Marion: Thanks, Marion, it was pretty magical...some hardy tourists out and about but none of them ready to go knee-deep through the Vietnam memorial.
fantastic composition and color! I think you really did the memorial justice :)
