I like the pose of the old soldier but I am not certain the reflected woman adds to this photo. I think its better to dwell on the old man as a subject, just my view.

wonderful image of an old soldier reflecting on memories of the war or a loved one or just lost in his own thoughts.

I think this is a super shot - to me the reflection of the woman represents what he's thinking.

Wonderful shot. Gives a whole range of emotions from glad to sad - glad that the old man survived the war and that he has a good place to live and sad he had to go through war in the first place etc etc etc
