This photo was taken at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. on November 11th, Veterans Day. It was a very powerful time to be there. I wish I could go back to retake this shot to make some things about it better (top right corner is way overexposed), but I thought I might as well share this photo with everyone.

This photo was cropped and converted to b&w

Nice image. And interestingly I don't think it would have worked as well if the people hadn't had their backs turned. So great timing on your behalf. You also mananged to work in a row of flags, whicH is a nice touch. I would like to visit this wall once day, but I fear I may be overcome, so in the meantime I will let the sight messengers show me what it's like. (8)

I like the way you've captured the flags, names and especially the mirrored images in the monument.

Blown sky and people's backs don't quite convey the right emotions. Also, i don't like that all lines end right in the middle vertically.

This would be great but for the brightness of the upper right corner. 6

nice shot, good leading line and the reflection is a good addation.
To make it a even better, bump your contrast up and you will see even more seperation between the wall and the reflection and it will show more detail in each.

So emotional, I like the way the memorial fades to a mirror (if you will) -9-

Good DOF and spot on for the focus. Very interesting reflection.
