This has a lot going for it Steve, but quick before anyone else comes along and replace it with the un-cropped version.
It just doesn't look 'right' cropped.

okay this is the un-cropped vertion, but I can hear the comments

An impressive looking structure and captured very well. Personally I'd like to see a tad more brightness just to add a bit of a sparkle to the gold figures on the top without losing the somberness of the sky but I like it a lot as it is.

Did not see the cropped version, but I imagine it must have looked wrong, but this looks fine a good POV.
Sometimes things are better without GUs but I don't think it is always a good idea to exclude them, they can have their uses.

I did not see the original posting but I don;t have an issue with this. I think the impact of the GU is reduced by the hedge and in any case take little away from the delights of the arch. I think they must be foreign tourists as I can't see any shrugging of the shoulders It's a very impressive structure and I like the gold figures on top and the gold collars on the horses.

You've made the best of a poor pov Steve and I prefer this one to the heavily cropped version.
Lovely colours and the figures atop the arch stand out well against the dark sky.
OK the hedge does intrude a tad but not a problem then with Keith's suggested edit to add a bit more sparkle, an even better shot.
Thanks for uploading this one Steve.

Wow - love it. That gold against those dark clouds look fabulous.. (and the 'Arc' is not too bad either!) Smashing!
