Very good work on this iconic statue. I got to know one of the Code Talkers when I taught on the "Rez." I like your pics.

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at the Veterans Memorial Park with Window Rock in the Background in Ganado Arizona which is located within the Navajo Nation..
Time
This particular photo was taken in late afternoon, just prior to the sun beginning to set.
Lighting
I was at the park for several hours taking pictures as the light changed. I felt that the light was best in this photo.
Equipment
The only equipment that I had was my Samsung Galaxy S10 note.
Inspiration
I come from a family with deep military ties! This picture was taken on the weekend that the 2nd to last Navajo Code Talker passed away. I feel that this group of men and their contribution to WWII should never be forgotten.
Editing
Actually I did very little post-processing on this photograph. I did some cropping of the photo and evened out the color. Tint and saturation slightly..
In my camera bag
Actually, I dont have a bag. Hoping I can upgrade soon though.
Feedback
My advice would be to photograph from a number of angles and also if possible take pictures in different lights. Because you never know when everything is just gonna click and you will have that magical picture that you have been striving for.
