"infidel" seems a bit out of focus. Maybe 5.6 would've done the trick

line the patches up so they are level see the 2 dots on the main patch they should be in line and infidel should be centered on top. also the wood is not level so keep an eye on that i would also try to hide the 2nd piece of wood

Sew the patches on a BDU shirt, then photograph.

"INFIDEL" appears to be tilting to the left.

What about the quality of the picture besides the alignment of the patches.

When you say quality I am not sure what critique you would prefer.

It is a technically decent photo of a patch.

The patch is rather funny.

The best book I have on improving skill is not technical.

I don't know what critique i'm looking for, I guess i'm just looking for an over all critique. Is it good is it bad? I see that I could of aligned the patches better but other than that is there anything else wrong with it.

There are no rules for a good photograph and there are no excuses for a bad one.

Right, you hit the point. You do not know what you are looking for. Yet. Read the book I suggested and you will be closer to knowing what you want and how to get it.

And forget about what other people think of your work. The race is with yourself. You like it, print it, hang it, done.

The things I noticed are already listed above.

Just for interest, what is the badge for/about ?

I like to give critique and can see myself doing a lot more in the future.

From my perspective: what would help is if the OP's indicated what their intentions were in creating the image. What are you trying to demonstrate? Are you after a certain style?

Who are the PEC's?

Help us out here.

If you are after an accurate depiction of the badges you should try to shoot them straight on and therefore maximize you DOF. In this image only part of the circular patch is in focus.

Unless there is artistic purpose (I'm not an artist!) behind maligning the badges, make them straight.

The crop is not doing much for me.

Though it's a bit too subtle and a bit unconventional, I don't mind the the subtle colour you have left in the image and the toning, though the whites could be brighter (check your histogram).
