A nice homage to the vets. I think he may be positioned just a little too far over at the edge of the frame. Bringing him in a touch would probably be better for the composition.

I like the composition of this photo, and I like the subtle communication of the "safety" concept. Good Job.

Very nicely composed!

Yup. Thank him for me, too! Good idea. I wish he didn't have his sunglasses on. It would be more 'personal'.

That is a lovely take on this subject. What a shame that the guns can never remain silent for long.

I TOTALLY agree with you!!! But the 'Safety' message is kinda being stretched to me. I'm going to add: 'Dear WWII Veteran, thank you for your service. And that you SAFELY returned home.

A great image but a bit too political for the safety challenge? Who cares though as the image is very well composed and the bright shock of red stands out well against the wall. 7/10

Really nice idea, I like this take on the theme. That water looks so cool too.
