We've already commented on this picture, but since then you have made it available for critique, so here it is!
This is our favorite picture of yours out of your entire gallery. The subject matter, that of a memorial to fallen soldiers, is one that resonates with almost everyone and as such, many photographers treat the subject with a laziness that we find obnoxious.
You did not and framed this image beautifully without being maudlin or melodramatic.
We have always enjoyed art that contained within it a degree of ambiguity - enough for the viewer to put something of themselves into the art being observed - and you have achieved that by how you have aimed this statue's eyes. As photographed, this soldier is not staring at us accusingly, he is looking past us, perhaps at something we have forgotten or in wistful remembrance of where he came from.
All in all, this is an excellent picture and as we have said before, one of our favorites.
Wow, you've got some skill there, friend! I love the black and white setting of the picture, it gives it more sadness in it, seeing that there are 2 soldiers, seeing what he and his brother have given a good path. The soldier on the left has really crisp detail on his body, and it helps since it blurs out the other soldier.
I've seen pictures like this before, so it's not new to me. I guess it's cause the new cool is the B&W. I still enjoy the placement of the picture, so that gives it a good sign of originality!
I've seen this memorial! It's the Korean memorial in Washington DC. I love how they were modeled after soldiers trekking through the foliage, like an action shot memorialized! I hear it's absolutely breathtaking during the winter when the snow falls over them, though I've only seen it in the summer. Great picture!
