Hi Dennis. Nice shot in tall frame with flag flying on half-staff. Good perspective and very well remembered.

Very nice photographed, nothing can make me more proud this day to see the red, white, and blue. Good composition, good light and color and good DoF, nice and sharp overall. I understand your intension, to honor our veterans and accordingly Veterans Day is to show our appreciation and gratitude toward those who served our country that are still living. Memorial Day are to honor and show respect to those who died in while serving our country. So Veterans Day has a happier occasion than Memorial Day. We can actually say “Happy Veterans Day, and thanks them for their services”
Base on the date, I assumed you took this image during Memorial Day. Thanks Larry for this patriotic image.

I see, that you put on the new interesting picture. A very good vertical composition, but in my opinion the part of the top of this picture should be cut (a little above the upper flag).
Besides the subject of the picture is still actual and important for American people and other people as well.
That's done well. Thanks for sharing.

Nice vertical format to show the flag and half flag mast. And a good moment to give a thought.

My dad was a soldier in WW2. 5 years in the infantry.
A wonderful tribute for the fallen heroes.
I like the vertical format of the flag at half mast.
Nice compo and perspective.

this is very nice, anything more patriotic than this one? Right now I`m counting the flags, even though I`m born in Germany, I have the American passport since my mother is American, therefore I like that! Great vertical framing and excellent presentation. What about darken the sky a bit more in photoshop, but that`s a question of taste. Great colors, what a nice one you got here, many thanks for sharing!

I have to give you points for this because I think it's a lovely picture, also I was working during our service so missed out and this picture lets me feel that I was part of the day :) Nice to see all of the flags, flowers and signs that people do remember. TFS

November 11 a dag for never to forget, zeker here in Flanders where the greatest victims fall during the four year.
I am very glad that you in America remeber the Great War or World War I.
Later I have different people here in Flanders know that soldier almost four year fought to the front.
Thank you very much.

You certainly depict how our cemetaries look.
I always find it terribly sad to see all the tiny US flags next to the graves. So many have given.

A useful reminder...
