Your sky is a bit too cyanish and your dark values (in the trees) look flat, and overall the land colors are muted while the sky is a bit too bright.
Great idea! and great composition! 9


Actually there are 8 vanishing points in this frame. In the whole panorama there are 31 VPs.

You have the right idea with vanishing point here. The key thing is lighting. This looks like it was shot around 1-3 in trhe afternoon. The lighting is overly harsh, and doesn't lend anything to the scene. A polarizer might help pop out the color a bit. The better bet is to come back around 6-8pm and get the same image in changing light. That will give it more depth.

I like the concept but the lighting seems a little harsh on the eyes.

I like the fact that you have achieved 3 main vanishing points, and 2 lesser ones. If I had a subject like this nearby, I think I would have done the same.

love the patterns. Not 100% sure about the colours, but a great attempt.

just like the endless rows, we seem to endless keep going to war--some lessons are never learned. Makes me sad.

Even the dead must follow the rule of the Vanishing Point. Good pic,

Very powerful photo. Might have been better with the sky cropped out above the flag. Should still be top 10.

One of those is a friend of mine... as were all of the rest of them for all the rest of us... One of the more compelling cemetry shots as I was here with a tear in my eye!
