My attention falls and blows away to the right.  This makes me feel as if I were there, but makes it hard to concentrate on the ramparts.

Too late! You were supposed to catch a bunch of soldiers holding onto that flagpole!

I thought everybody knew that!

I like this photo for it's compositional tension. It makes you tilt your head - normally not a good thing - but here it is the photograph, so it kind of works. The subject is pretty simple and bold and well established. It generates a 'you are there feel' for me, and I like that. It's strong and simple and well executed.

Mostly I am struck by the reference to the famous Iwo Jima photograph. I can't really look at this one without seeing that one.

1) I'm not even sure WHY the reference feels to strong. The two are only superficially similar, surely?
2) The reference being so strong makes it impossible for me to judge this one, it reads entirely as a quotation (even though it's not, really)

Just out of curiosity, is there a particular reason why there's a flag on that rock?
