Taken at the top of the new World War 2 Memorial. I liked the visual imapct of the Freedom Wall with the Lincoln Memorial in the background. There's three levels of viewing in addition to the three individuals in the shot.

levels, contrast, and a smidge of color correction. Cloned out a runner on the left who was cool, but not in keeping with the whole three thing. :)

Price of Freedom was...3? Can't distinguish what this has to do with 3. 3 people in the foreground? 4 sets of 3 pillars? 8 sets of 3 fountains? I do like this as a photo. Has great symmetry in the background, and some people interest in the foreground. Can't tell if the horizon line is truly off, but seems to go uphill a bit toward the right

There's a lot of "threes" within this photo which makes it really interesting to look at. The framed pillars, the people, and the layers . Nice work.

I don't get the reference to three. Assuming it's the three people, but they are very minor elements, not the subject of the photo.

I had to look at this twice to "get it" ... maybe I just wasn't paying attention the first time. Anyway. good exposure, limited interest level.

i think i'm being thick - i can't see the threes. well, 3 people, and three shadows in the monument thing in the background, but i would have thought those are incidental. i'm afraid i don't know my american history enough to think of something that might be more specific. technically, it's a very nice picture - symmetry is pleasing and the guy in the fountain is a good point of interest.

i fi look hard enough i CAN find a few 3s.
However i don't think they are pronounced enough to fit.

okay, see, I understand where people are trying to subtlely infuse the theme into their pictures, but so far this is the only one that, in my eyes, is a success. "threes" works on several layers in this picture, but none of them are super obvious. great job :)

Three? I like the levels of the photo rising to the lincoln mem, Is that the 3? The building behind the licoln are distracting perhaps if you took the shot from a closer/lower angle? The people here are distracting too. I think closer would be better so we could see that there are stars on the wall.

3 as in 3 people? I like the symmetry. A bit over exposed.
