6 (up from 5) - I think you have a good capture here of this 'era', a shot of this into a time capsule would depict the era/historical aspect for future generations. I don't think the 'AD' was necessary but that is just my opinion. Criticism; whilst I think you have captured a certain amount of 'tension' and 'drama' here, I would like to see that emphasized somehow. The colors are nice and bold, especially against the clear blue sky, so depending of course if you were able to incorporate more into the frame, maybe more sky, or full length 'toy soldiers' (that's what they look like to me), would have made this a better shot in my opinion.

I like the simplicity of colors in this, though i wish the red was just a bit brighter. I also love the way the angle give a bit of the feeling of a little boy lookin up.

Interesting perspective and composition. I would have liked a little more attention paid to the background wire. An okay fit with the challenge.

Nice composition and fitting for the time period. I'm not all that crazy about the angle though. I hate having to tilt my head to look at a picture.
