Very nice job! Congrats on personal best! One thing that surprised me about this image when I saw it; if it were mine I'd have had woody facing AWAY from the camera, so the first instance of his face would be the primary reflection. This would have been more poignant to me, as it would give him something to "be saluting"...

Well done! I didnt realize it was a mirror image until I read your description. Great idea and well executed.

This looks like a mirror image of the Vietnam wall, since I can make out the text and it's backwards. I like the idea, as it's very patriotic and well thought out.

This is probably the most poignant photo in a very nonpoignant challenge. 9

This is very intriguing! Would love to see how you set this up. Nicely Done!

Ok the mirror effect is nice to gain more woodies, but throws me that I see the back of the next one. To me it is very distracting. I am wondering if a more classic 'morning' against the wall pose would work better? ust an idea. I think contrasts also might need a touch.

Clever use of mirrors like that. I like the leading line effect and the creative wall and "ground" you've put together. Seems a little grainy, but not terrible. Good use of a full 640 x 640. Good luck in the challenge.

OMG! The hat is too much! Great job! Does the wall say "Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody Woody ...etc."?
