Arc the Triomphe du Carrousel

G'Day Fons!

I like this style but it seems just a bit too washed out, especially over the center arc, just below the horses and chariot. BTW: What was the focal length of this shot? I'm wondering if closer and wider might be better.

Thanks Leon,

I dotched the centre a little to let the shadow of the German soldier come out better......!
Focal length 14mm shot with the ED14 -54mm I did not had my wide angle lens that time , now I would use it for these kind of shots....-))
