I like the composition and the idea, however I came back to this a few times as something didnt seem quite right.

I finally noticed that the cross is leaning back, - not straight, and addressed this in a mod. In doing so, I of course had to make the border over again, and I would suggest your copyright in this particular shot at least would look better a lot less obtrusive, so I left it smaller, bottom tight at an 80% opacity. I added some effects to the top text.

A nice tribute, and the Poppies in the tree are well captured, and quite heart breaking.

Difficult this one as I fully support our armed forces in every way, but am not really into religion. A good shot, but I would prefer it without your logo along the bottom.

Thank you for your comments
I can totally see what you mean Willie and thank you very much for your modification.
I also will take onboard both comments about logo distracting from the image itself.
