    first two i'm not a huge fan of their faces all being shadowed...

    i like the third one cuz i kinda follow the dude in the foreground's eyes towards the guy in the background... though i think it'd be better if you cloned out that rope that cuts right across the middle of the frame...

    the last one i think the idea is nice and it looks good, but think theres a little too much blank sky that doesn't do much for you, and not big fan of the selective coloring...

    overall pretty nice though!

    They look very authentic, with a little dust and scratches added it would be perfect. Not excellent artistically I will say (no offense) but very compelling re-creational-ly (definitely not a word!).

    If you were trying to make them look historic or real I think you missed the mark. They look a little too polished and high contrast to be a historic picture. you might try looking at some historic images and try and go more in that vein.

    really?
    i always thought that stars go forward.
    it shows pushing forward...flags positioned with the stars to the back shows retreat.

    i suppose i could be wrong...it has happened before. ;)

    nope.
    stars forward. always.

    *edit*
    from wiki.

    "Note that on US Military combat uniforms, where the flag is put on the sleeve of the uniform, the flag patch is displayed with the stars facing forward, in the direction the wearer is facing. This is done to give the impression of the flag flowing in the wind while being carried forward across the battlefield."

    thank you and goodnight.

    First off, never getting anything from wiki. It is the most unreliable site because idiots can post whatever they want about anything they want. Second if you find a historical photo with a backwards flag then show me. Next, I have reenacted for a long, long time and if you are ever are in the reenacting world they know not to let something this big slip by. It would be dishonorable to wear the flag any other way but properly.
