Very nice image. I do like the blend of color and B&W. I would like to know more about you post processing.   Posted: 06/07/2020 11:53:19

I really did not do anything in post except remove some magenta from the grass (-100 purple and +8 red to make up for the slight loss after the purple removal)   Posted: 06/21/2020 00:22:10

I enjoy the composition and theme of this image. I am sensitive to the juxtaposition of the old versus new giving a strong sense of time. Good work!!

The hook for me in this story telling image is the repetition of the shapes, patterns, textures, tones, and finally the patriotism and color to add impact.   Posted: 06/12/2020 16:12:16

To me the most important part of this image is the sense of patriotism it portrays in these crazy times.
The obvious age of the stones, the color and the brightness of the flags standing waving slightly but still waving in what appears to be a dismal day, make this image as powerful as it is.   Posted: 06/13/2020 19:13:38

I love the faint hint of mist (not sure if that was intentional or not). It gives the image an almost ethereal and haunting look. It adds to the concept of past heroes and their memories.

If the effect was intentional I'd love to hear how it was acheived.   Posted: 06/22/2020 16:26:26
