An amazing photo on many levels.
The frame is brilliant as is the subject himself.
The look on his face says a hundred things..but if you look through his eyes you cant even begin to imagine the things he must have seen.
Very well done.
Congrats on the ribbon.

Congrats on your first ribbon! Very nice example of a candid portrait. The crop is a bit tight, but I figure there were probably some background elements that you were trying to eliminate. :) I'd love to know this guy's story. Well done!

Congratulations on your yellow with this study that elevates the soul of man. So touching and so somber with such a deep meaning. Glorious, in one word!

This is an excellent portrait - the beret and the tie are just perfect "props" for the face which is filled with acquired wisdom.

This is more than a photograph. Our generation does remember who our heroes are, and why. A fine photograph...and if you could talk for a while with this old warrior it would add to your understanding of the duties we have in life.
