I had a lot of ideas for this challenge but I had a hard time finding one that would actually work. I took my camera to work in hopes of finding something to shoot. We staged a few medical things but I just didnt see it. Then my friend came in in his dress blues and I thought that would be perfect...and here it is. I hope you like it.

this is very well done, but his face doesnt look serious enough. He looks as if he is about to burst out laughing

I really liked this shot a bunch. Looks like it came right out of a recruiting poster. Nice sharp colors and details. Excellent work. Go Navy!

A strong entry, but both the photograph and the title suggest more of an advertisement than heroism. Still good execution.

One of my top three choices for the winner. The shot is crisp, and has great composition. Good Job.

Very moving image - you've captured both seriousness of duty and sense of pride in the expression. Good use of DOF to really make the focal point pop. One of my faves in this challenge!

Strong shadows work well in this photo. Nice post processing of background.

Very nicely lit and desaturated. Excellent compositional lines too.

Excellent lighting, focus, pose. Well executed shot.

Wonderful composition, good color and either natural or selective desat of the background, and perfect match to the theme. I am predicting a ribbon here!

Great shot!! The selective desat works very well here. 8

What a great photo. If I could figure out why I cannot vote, or rather when I figure out how to vote, I will deffinately vote highly on this one.

Nice lighting. Well done. I like the pround expression on his face.

This is definitely a 10. Perfect pose, expression, composition. The light is harsh but appropriate. My pick for a ribbon.
