At a complete loss. 5.0 if I'm lucky. I am in a real slump right now.

I loved this one -- it was a 10 from me. Very evocative.

What a wonderful photo. Kind of sweet and sentimental. Glad to see it exceeded your expectations!

Nicely done. Would like to see a bit more DOF so the medals and ribbons (sorry, I don't know the proper term for them) are also in focus. I am guessing at who took the photo, could it be 21.gif toddhead?

Coming back for another guess, could it be 21.gif sempermarine?

I guess this is 21.gif sempermarine's entry.
I think a few highlights especially on the Bear are too hot. Also it seems a bit oversharpened as there are jagged edges in some of the finer details and more noticeable along the red line down the coat. A very good idea though as I am sure these two things define who you are. 6

Lighting seems to be off, especially on the bear and it doesn't seem too sharp to me.

Awww. I love this photo! The emphasis on the teddy bear definitely made me "aww"... out loud :)

One of my favorites. An emotion grabber.

Ok, I'm just looking through -- not voting at the moment. Well, wasn't planning on it, until now. I found this photo extremely powerful (perhaps because I'm a mom!)

Awesome, incredible, bravo! - 10

Very well done. Really like that angle.

I like this, I think the exposure works well against the darkness of the uniform. I think you captured personality in this, something that I can't say for a lot of the other entries. I love the duality of the occupation vs. the family ties. Good job.

The bear is overexposed, but by far the best image I have seen so far.......
