Vietnam Veterans' Memorial, Washington, DC. Initially, I was annoyed that this group of guys was walking towards me, ruining the shot. Then I realized that they *were* the shot.

Interesting light on a well known, touching subject matter. Can't give this less than a 9. Partially for being a touching image, partially for the way you've captured the tonal range - dark areas showing light lettering, light area showing dark lettering - a tricky principle than the casual viewer may not grasp at a quick glance. 9

You captured the lighting and reflections perfectly. Excellent shot and a tribute to those names on the wall.

This is an amazing capture, my father served in Vietnam so this hits close to home. I love the reflection of the walkway leading to the Washington Monument. The tones are perfect and composition of the reflection really pulls you in.

Well done, I hope this dose well for you in this challenge, this is a wall hanger without a doubt.

Not much you can say here, sobering and somber, but respectfully done.
