Speaking in Terms of focus, lighting, contrast etc. This is one of the best of photos I have yet seen. But it sorta' strays from what everyone else knows them as.

Update: Sorry, I didn't realize those were soviet symbols(late night) save the "cccp", and the hammer and sickle in the back.

Originally, I thought they may have been Awards from some lost College years in Eastern Europe.

backgroud is distracting, and the depth of field is a bit tight.

The composition of this picture needed more careful planning. There are only two place that are clearly focused, and there seems to be little relationship of one item to another. Personally, I would love to know the story of these medallions and to see each clearly.

Some people are going to critique the out of focus pins in the background, but I like it. Nice choice of fabric to fill the shot with color. 8
