I don't think this one got rated, so here's an isolated rating (sorry if I'm screwing things up more):
7/10 I'm not big on military, so there may be some bias. Overall composition is good, angle is good for me. Exposure is good, but was probably a pain in the harsh lighting with dark uniforms. The focus appears to be on the casket, gradually going OOF as things move back in the pic. It looks like moving the focus back a little bit would have put more in focus, which helps with "story telling" photos . I would also crank the aperture up a bit more to F16-22 range probably. The sharpening on the "HONOR GUARD" patch seems a little too strong, it almost looks fake. It looks like a few eyes are closed or squinting, but the guy on the far right DEFINITELY has his eyes closed which is a minus.

Back to the woman: 7/10 - seems a little dark to me, but interesting subject. Young lady, with a scarf that was obviosly over her mouth and nose, looking up and talking on a radio of some sort. Other people around in the background, so part of an event of some sort? So many questions to be answered! :D

It is a nice image, but would have been even nicer had the wall (?) in the foreground not been there. Not sure if the photographer could have moved up in any way, or if the photo could be cropped to suit, but it would have made all the difference to me. 7/10

I just wish you would have cropped it in closer. Otherwise, great image

7/10 I actually like the lack of separation light, but kind of wish the above light was feathered off a little more to keep with the look.

6/10 I don't find the picture that appealing, I don't like the crop much.

I like that you can see how he enjoys playing, but the the photo it self is a little underexposed for my taste, so 8/10

^ Really diggin this capture. There's something about the emotion its giving off that makes this nice to look at. I only wish it were taken in landscape ... other than that its solid.

7/10

The composition is good, however the flash is a bit harsh which kinda makes the yellow a bit overexposed. 6/10

Very nice, bright and beautiful. 7.5/10 I always find that red is the best color to have in most photographs.

8.5/10 Nice frame, composition. I love the processing, it adds kind of drama to the picture.

4/10. Nice try but image just doesn't convey that sense of vigor and liveliness. It seems more made up that real. Focus is totally missed that is a biggy. This could be accepted in view of motion blur in dark situation but that is not the case here.

My eyes are drawn to the red fringe/shadow on her neck which makes my eyes wander a bit. Her hair on the left side of the picture makes me wonder if that hair is part of the background or actually hers.

5/10
