Nice ! Clean !

I would have added a Texas flag, but I'm a Native, so I'd put that flag anywhere it'd fit.

And/or maybe the McKinney crest, if they have one.

That's a very nice composition. I might have used a brass colored backer plate behind the photos to frame them but that's personal taste.

I would also use a black fill to improve the contrast. (don't tell anybody but liquid black shoe polish works very well on walnut)

One more thing I do on plaques like this is to apply a coat of wax.

I'm with Mike, The only thing I would do is to border the prints,, it gives it
that final touch.

Mike your giving away all our secrets.:D
