Shot at the Vietnam Memorial over Cherry Blossom weekend. Something about her expression just caught my eye. The look of pain on her face as she searched for the name on the wall. This is still one of my favorite places to shoot.

Great capture of emotion... I like the way you used the reflection entirely for this photo. I might have cropped the left part out just short of where the main subjects shirt starts. The red to the left takes away from an otherwise good photo.

This required a little bit of studying to appreciate.
At first I wasn't sure what was reflection and what wasn't.
Emotive, well composed and unique point of view. (7)

Touching, and good clarity for a reflection shot.

some more detail at the right side (non-reflection) to show that this actually is reflected would have helped.. although its a powerful image

I like the reflection, but would have liked to see more of the actual person to accentuate the reflective nature

Nice emotion, I think a picture of the lady and not just her reflection would have a stonger impact.

I'd have included more of the actual woman (as opposed to the reflection) so it's more obvious it is a reflection. It took me a moment to orient (is this the right spelling of that word?) myself and I only got it when I saw the hand at the right.
