Very touching photo and great subject matter for this month. Excellent work with the selective focus, draws the viewer right into the important part of the photo. Great work! PS: might have done very well in the Hero's Challenge also.

Wish the leaves weren't growing out of the top of his head -- it would have more impact to just see him. Very touching photo however.

Uhm. I get an association with the vietnam memorial... not sure how this kid can remember any of that. I wasn't born at the time myself...

The writing on the wall seems just a little too dark. My monitor is calibrated to the strip at the bottom so I don't think it is a problem with that. Other then that it is a very good photo.

The skin is overexposed, it almost looks ghostly against the black background,

Very well done, altough the image may have been strong to just focus on the boy 's hand and arm and possible crop out the OOF head.

I like this image very much, but the shot through the wreath doesn't do it for me. It would have been more powerful, I think, without the wreath obscuring the child and the names on the wall. (Would be better too if names were easier to see). But such a powerful idea!

I like this shot...It would have been more impactful if the names could be seen and read.
