Hung, you have captured a wonderful iconic image. I feel that this is a different perspective than ordinarily seen. In my opinion, the flags--or at least the motion of the flags--distract from the center of interest. I would suggest that you could have moved to a different viewpoint to eliminate the flags.   Posted: 06/15/2020 14:39:33

I agree with Shirley's perspective. The flags, with some of them being blurred because of movement and overlaying one of the faces, detract from the image.   Posted: 06/17/2020 19:05:36

Interesting perspective of an iconic historical subject; the flags, although distracting serve as foreground leading lines but I think come out slightly too bright - so I would tone them down by de-saturating the red slightly. Another move could be to take out the top flag, its post, and the small remnant of a flag fluttering on the right; and then crop down about half way through the sky. A sky replacement would also be good. If you agree, you can post the original I can give it a try.   Posted: 06/18/2020 22:03:02

I like the edit Piers made - I like the flags as it gives a sense of how windy it was (or is?) at Mt. Rushmore and gives a unique perspective. But removing that one flag crossing Washington's face and adding some cloud coverage adds to the story.   Posted: 06/19/2020 07:12:21
