Congratulations on your 15th placinh. Happy to see this image in the top 20, though it belongs much higher. But your talent will bring more of these visual images to the fore.

Hey, I like that non-star-shaped badge/medallion ... a nicer than usual presentation of the seal and type.

Sharp, focused, well exposed. Somewhat of an orange/warm cast to the pic overall which could have been corrected by a quick levels adjustment, unless it was an artistic gesture.

Don't mean to be negative but the red line is a bit distracting, otherwise great pic. 8

not quite sure what to say here. yes, you have a symbol of authority, and it is also obvious that you have a decent camera. i also think this image could use some work. the lighting is fine, except for blowing out the edge of the badge--that is a major distraction--the textures are undone by the badge. also, i can't tell what is in the foreground. it has an interesting pattern, but beyond that, it is not really adding anything to the image. i think you had the makings of producing a good image, and would definitely recommend revisiting it to see if you could pull out something a bit stronger.

It might have been interesting to take this from more of an angle, and not have the badge dead-center. Also, the glare on the left of the badge is a pity.

Good composition, good tones, but the one highlight to the left of "POLICE" is distracting.

Nice light, textures, and colors. The light on the badge works well. The photo meets the challenge for me.
