    Went by the federal building memorial in Oklahoma City a while back. This is the only image I liked out of the bunch. There are a few more contenders, but they're going to require heavy cropping.

    Nice! I like that you chose a row with only two stones in it as the center. It seems to have more of an emotional imact that way.

    You might want to try a square crop on that. If you came down to the top of the wall, and then up to cut out the grass until it was square, it would bring more attention in to the stones, which are the main subjects. The background as it is now is a little distracting.

    Thanks for the kind words and suggestions. :)

    As much as I like this image, I gotta admit that it's mostly a happy accident. But, hey, that just means there's all the more room for improvement.

    I'll try a square crop on it tonight and see how it comes out. Yeah, the background is distracting. I'll post the results after work. :)

    EDIT: As a little background information, each of these "chairs" represents one of the victims who died in the federal building bombing. There are nine rows, one for each floor. The smaller chair to the right of the picture represnets of the children in the building. Not trying to bring you guys down, just a little story behind the photo. :)
