Two photos collaged into one. The first is the flag above the memorial and the second is the names of the people who lost their lives on 12/7/41. Your feedback will be appreciated.

Lived there, been there many, many times. Being that I have been there and see this composite I don't find it to be one that draws my attention to anything but what looks distracting at the bottom of this image.

Names cut off is also distracting to me.

My perspective tells me this is a thoughtful photograph. I like the superimposed flag.

Names cut off in this photograph in any area of the picture won't be a distraction simply because most viewers will recognize itnot asan inclusive list of names to be seen and read but more of an understanding of the lives lost to history. So the fading out of the names,particularly on the bottom says we know there are more to be seen andunderstood inits context.The picture as showngives it a feeling ofdepth in that some names can be read thereby making it much more personal as opposed to an endless line of names that from another camera angle couldn't have shown the emotional depth and sacrifice.

FOr me i think either shots are both nice, but im not sre if they impose together to well.

I find it very distracting. Lots of tight lines. Maybe if the flag was ery large with the text small or maybe the flag off to the side.

not sure
