a little interest, but appears like a shot for a newspaper. The horizon line is off

nice color, comp ok, b&w need work, light flat, texture ok, overall not interesting

The subjects in this photo are too centered, the reflection off of the posters is distracting if you had moved to the left or right and taken the shot at an angle this would have been improved significantly.

I don't think you have maximised the potential of this shot, as it is a lot smaller than entries are allowed to be. The crop also seems really quite centred. Is an emotional shot, which appeals to a lot of people, but just needs a tweak to work a little better.

Quite emotional and comforting...

Wonderful sentiment, though not the strongest portrayal of it. And not a very good photograph. My-son-the-marine has only 16 days left of his four years of service. It has been a long four years for a Mom. He has close friends who have died and lost limbs. I'm so glad that you had the courage to enter this statement. Unfortunately it is not as clear as it could be. I was going to comment that the pizza boxes on the right were distracting but then realized they are crosses. The sun glare on the signs is a DPC nono, as is the slight tilt of the horizon. When the subject is placed in the center like this, it is less interesting than one placed off center. However, I am going to give you a 10 for guts and for my 21 year old son who survived and his buddies who did not.

This would make a good photojournalism photo. I find the white bit in the foreground distracting though, and I think you should have used the full 640px size.

Political feelings aside... This could have been a stronger image with a little more cropping. My suggestion would be eliminate more of the foreground, and zero in on the clasped hands with the signs as BG. The bench on the right is also distracting.

an O.K. political statement, but the photo comes off as being a little staged, and not very technically proficient. The composition is too centered and dull, the neon coloring of the signs is distracting and gaudy, and the grave markers in front are too cut out, and only serve to look out of place (and hard to determine).

too busy.

nice photojournalism... however with advanced editing rules i would have cropped in a bit closer and removed (cloned out) distracting white objects at front
