Washington Monument! I was jus there! Thursday night! Great POV and shadow play. Poster is very well put together.

Love the saying. Unfortunately, the picture doesn't appear level.

Great idea, I like the flags. The crop is a little too tight for me.

Agree,
Not sure about the angle though,

It's one of those pictures which immediately grabs the viewer and makes him think, which is quite an exceptional achievement! There's loads of subtle things happening, the softness, the not quite right perspective, the the lower shadow... Great stuff!

Great words, and something still worth fighting for.......could sit here on my wall.

I would have had the writing different, top line ending at the end of the ......., then the second part of the phrase on the second line. You could afford to shrink the writing to make it work.......Title could have been more bold as well, and the border also I feel should be thicker....

Don't know what the photo is of, I presume somewhere where the flags of nations fly. I like the different idea of showing the flags as shaddows though. I think this has a stronger message as we don't see a countries flag, it could be anyones nation, helping anyone, and not just the US, or Canada, or Uk, or Australia......it removes the National political message for this, and lets the straight Political message hold firm, that Freedom is the basis to Successful nations, whether it is the middle east, or Africa, or anywhere. A great submission to provoke though, to motivate people, and one that is very different to what I expected, while strongly putting forward a great message........
