I'm not fond of the shot, but it is a unique perspective... fits the assignment

If it were cropped a little more at the bottom I think it would have given it a better illusion that the flag is taller.

Lots of impact here. Perfect composition. My only critique is the people at the base are a bit distorted by the adjustments you had to do to get the monument looking right. Very well done.

Great Perspective, this should be a ribbon winner 4 sure, you have my top vote. I lived in the DC area most my life and never thought about that angle. One time I merged photos the monument, but this is a much better shot.

Great sense of scale, but unfortunately to me the distortion to the human elements make it a distraction instead - 5

I wish the colors could have popped more. But from a composition standpoint, this is amazing. I like how both the monument and flagpole look like they have detail and the positioning of the elements is great.
