Very sad. I like very low-key soft toned colors in this case.

If this was your mother or wife...my condolences and my thank you for your gift to our safety. It was a very high cost...

Very nice photo...

The arm seems awkwardly composed. I'd have to see some other stuff to know what would be better though. Perhaps a little more contrast. The snow looks fairly gray. 5

This is a really nice photo, and I'm giving it a high vote. The only thing keeping me from giving a 9 or 10 is that I think the arm is awkwardly placed. I would prefer the arm gone totally, or maybe if the person was crouched down in profile, facing the headstone.

It's a great shot though, I love the desaturation, it adds emotion.

Composition is ok. The subject matter could have been better. Nice image quality. Has potential of being really creative. - 5

beautiful shot, it really hit home, if the topic had been father i think i would have taken the same shot. I love the hints of red though out, that you didnt forget about the weaths in the back... great job

The colors in the picture seem a little bit dull to me, I really like the idea of the picture but it seems in between not enough color and b and w, just my opinion

This is so emotive. Sad. I've never seen a national cemetery covered in snow. It is even more striking than normal! Great job.

Very moody sombre feel to this shot...well done.

very solemn picture. the hand/arm is very dark which makes it hard to identify as placing the wreath. a different color glove might have helped in this instance.

The dark sleeve hand hand get a bit lost in the dar background at the top...
