Show us where, or when, or how things meet or come together.

Remembrance Day - a day when people around the world come together in their cities, towns and villages to remember, give thanks and say prayers for the brave soldiers who gave so selflessly of themselves so we could enjoy our freedoms.

The photo is of army cadets. The following passage is from the Government of Canada website re: Army Cadets get involved in ceremonial military events and citizenship activities that allow them to connect to their Canadian heritage. They develop a great sense of pride and discipline through their involvement in a hierarchical system that allows them to hone their leadership skills as they grow older and they learn to care for younger cadets.

This was really underrated from my perspective. You've created an effective overall composition that brings the eye right to where it should be. And the processing is well matched to the subject - channels the itchy wool they must be wearing... Nice work!

I thought it perfectly fit the challenge. But it's hard to please everyone. The texture added to the mystery of it all, the boy on the end was the one we needed to focus on.

Back to bump for the second time. Each time I view this I appreciate it some more. Good use of added texture, and nice leading lines to the face that's the focus.
I'm aware of feeling sadness in response to this, especially in response to seeing the poppies all so neatly placed. When I was a child we would attend Remembrance day services on Plymouth Hoe, with the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines all very well represented, along with wounded veterans. This, of course, in a city that was very badly bombed during the war.

I was going to rate this among my best picks then noticed the overlay that defaces the faces so to speak. 6 anyway

This doesn't say "conjunctions" to me at all.
