This is a National Monument, Arlington National Cemetary, a Landmark, and there is an American Flag, on the right horizon. I like the photo very much, but, it does not qualify for this Challenge.

Distortion from a wide angle lens doesn't work for many shots, but is well-suited for this image. Great clarity & detail.
Well Done!

The fish-eye effect works very well here to emphasize the horizon and expanses of graves.

The fish-eye lens makes this a rather unusual image. The white sky was terrible - but you did really well to get rid of it the best you could. Title and subject definitely meet the freedom theme.

Great concept, might try shooting from a different perspective.

This would make more sense if the headstone showed a soldier who died in a war. I'm not saying thi man did not make sacrifices but the title and photograph imply the cost of freedom is sometimes death and this man obviously lived quite a long time after serving in those wars.

Photographically, it is a nice documentary photo of the cemetary.
