January Squares: Goldenlight

You have to look up to see her, but she is quite dazzling:

ISO 320 f/11 21mm 1/1250 sec

This is Gëlle Fra, the golden lady, a memorial on Constitution Square in Luxembourg City, to commemorate the dead of WWI. Originally erected in 1923, it was pulled down by the Nazis in 1940 and then restored to its original appearance in 1984.

This file was taken with my Canon 80D and then edited in Luminar:

ISO 320 f/11 21mm 1/1250 sec

In addition to the crop, I corrected for lens distortion. I boosted the luminance of the orange and yellow. I slid the sky enhancer up and highlights and blacks down. I have also added a vignette.
