I like the concept of this image and it was executed well with the combination of these images in a way that really illustrates this point. I like the way the people are transparent, which fits well because they are representing a memory in the past, but then there is a girl in surroundings that are solid colors, very nice idea. The setting is appropriate, along with the pose of the model, which is incorporated well into her surroundings, even with the littlest of detail like the way the grass comes over her and the use of a shadow in front of her in coordination with the light source. Also the use of the american flag as a border really helps to frame this image, while giving even more meaning to it.
What do you think?

Np...I come from an entire family that served in the military; Great uncles in WWII, a distant cousin the in Civil War, and my brother in Desert Storm. Memorial Day is a great day to honor what they did for our country.
