A neighbor created this memorial quilt which contains authentic military patches from every conflict since World War II (most of which came from her own family). She displayed it on her lawn for the 5th anniversary of the September 11th attacks, surrounded by flags which had been left at the traveling Vietnam Memorial. May we never forget any of our fallen heros.

Critique Club Review:

Focus and depth of field are done well.

Color, saturation, and hue are very good. Skin tones are dead on.

I might wish for a smidge brighter picture for a more vivid rendition, but then it may just be my monitor.

I find myself wishing to see more of the quilt, and a little less of the flags down front. They cause a little bit of distraction for me.

Overall a very enjoyable picture. One that I think should have scored a bit higher.

More contrast would be good.

A very timely photo, and one that fits the challenge while telling a story: I see a lot of shots that just have shapes but no real sense of geometry, and this is not one of them, and the shot just seems very alive with the interplay of children in the foreground and the shapes in the background.
