    Some parts of the subjects are very slightly out of focus and distracting. Perhaps a higher f-stop.

    Nice play of licht and shadows to highlight the inscriptions. Also like the diagonal composition

    You executed this well. Your DOF is good, and lighting is ok. Maybe a little dark. Looking at you extra info and title I was interested to see what you were trying to say in this image, so I looked up the Lion's Club International. I found it to be an interesting initiative. But that got me thinking, an image needs to convey a message in it own right. So it might have been worth it to drop your depth of field and focus on the "We Serve" but keep the other "Lions Club International" out of focus but still readable. Also reposition the light to highlight the "We Serve". But then you would need to have a wider crop and place the "We Serve" more towards the centre, on the third lines. This would have created a clear focal point on "We Serve" and would have enticed the view to ask the question "Who Serves?". Just an idea for a more powerful image, maybe you can try this and share in the outtakes after voting.

    The dark background, together with the composition and lighting,makes for a very elegant presentation. Would prefer to see the closer edge in sharp focus, with the farther one slightly soft if necessary.

    In focus, great shot, great cause

    The lighting is perfect, illustrating the gold colour and highlighting it nicely. Good positioning also but I'd rather it didn't touch the frame o the left. Picky picky :-) I also like your choice of dof for this.

    I would like this more if it were more evenly lit. Good detail and orientation of the subject.

    A little too tight, and should of cloned out the spot on the left.
