Lovely symbolism imparted in a very realistic way. Congrats on the new PB, but you'll beat it again quite soon, I'm sure.

Congratulation on your PB. This is a wonderful composition. The reflection on the memorial seems like the ones who were lost are looking back on the ones who are left without them -- a connection between the living and the dead. Perhaps that's what you meant by the title. Very evocative.

Congrats on your new personal best score, and welcome to Team Suck! :) I didn't know there was a traveling version of the wall - thanks for showing me.

very dramatic and emotive shot -the reflection of the older man really tells a story

I like the idea very much, but the reflection of a taller man doesn't do anything for the pic. Don't suppose you could do much about that though.

IMO I think you shot this at the wrong time of the day. The bright sunlight says snapshot all over it, along with the reflections on the wall.

without the reflection in the wall this should be an image without a strong element. 7

Interesting shot. Did you set it up to have the boy looking at the man in the reflection, or was that just coincidence? It's a nice image regardless, but if you set it up like that, it may have been more powerful if the man in the reflection was wearing a soldiers uniform. Just a thought.

Very much like the boy and the reflection; not sure about the second person reflected as I think it takes away from the poignancy a bit.

Love it. The details just keep coming and coming.

I like how you can see the reflection of an adult .. works with the photo & title.

Contrast is needed more.

I like this a lot - if the reflection of the lady? would not be there this would really be an imaginative capture. 8
