Very nice. Represents the subject well with a somber tone. Good composition. I'd try the lower text on the left so the wheel is not covered.

Great perspective, and the processing really makes the canons jump out.

Nicely done. Great depth of field, tonal colors between the sky and the cannons are a perfect match and your caption opens the imagination. - 9

Great perspective and deptho of field on this. The greys in the sky add a nice element to it as to not "pretty" a war scene. A 10 in my book. Nice job.

I really like the repetition of the canons. You captured a nice rhythm with your angle. Also, the text fits well. Though I would like a bit more size difference. Maybe make the top text smaller, or the bottom a bit larger?
