This give a good impression of what the infinity is. It's a hight price tag...
I would have give it a nine but there is a lack of one man at the second row. I am cruel, I know Sad

Would have prbably rated it higher if it wasn't as rethorical in the title, "price of world domination" would seem more appropriate to some. In any case, nice shot but the shadows are too dark and the highlights to bright.

I would also have rated it higher, and agree the title should have been,the price you pay for world domination.The shots nice,but the highlights far too bright.Please non of this patriotic stuff,it may work in the US,but a lot of us around the rest of the world, don,t get our heartstrings pulled by themes like this.

How tragic...the title of a photograph dilutes your rating and skill to analyze a picture. I suppose if a were to submit a photo of Adolph Hitler and it was titled 'My father, My friend", It would be an automatic 9? Or is your idea of "freedom" limited to the visual expression? Your desire to justify your bullshit, isn't neccesary in my mad, mad, mad, capitolistic little world. And yes..I will have a nice day.

I personally loved this photo and think the title is appropriate. To let you know the emotional impact of this photo I teared up when I first saw it. Composition is wonderful--even the missing grave works for me. I love the depth of the colors.

The infantile respsonse to this photos title is astounding. World domination? How some people forget or outright lie about history is a joke.

I like the title, but I would also like a more roundabout title like Resting in the Shade of the Trees.

Great shot... I don't see how the title would have any relevance on the compositon of the picture, but so be it... I would have rated it a 9, but felt I had to compensate for the unjust 5's... 'nuf said.
