I think I loved this photo for precisely the reason some others were commenting in a negative fashion. I like that you CAN'T see whose stone he is looking at, and the fact that you can't see his face but the body posture evokes grief and almost a moment of silence. The title is perfect and it is definitely blue ribbon material by my standards.

Nice shot. I would like to see him looking at tombstones but with this shot I can't tell that. Either if you stepped back a ways or had his in the same pose behind some of those headstones it would be better IMHO.

Very emotional. Nice job!

I like it, a different take on the challenge. The repeating patterns broken y the lone man sets a stark aloneness.

Emotional and physical takes on the challenge... this style looks very familiar to me. Something in the focus isn't feeling right here tho.

The almost literal definition of alone in a crowd. Cant say much beyond that. Highest rated image in this challenge in my opinion.

Very poignant & insightful interpretation of the challenge. I would prefer to see the stone the veteran is facing and peraps place him back further amongst the stones. Perhaps you were trying to assure his cap was legible, but I think the context (particularly with the title) is easy to understand. Thanks for a very thought provoking entry.

Very powerful image. The posture of the man tells a story all its own. 10

How alone can you get.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

What a powerful image. Unfortunately, my eye gets drawn away from the subject, which tends to follow the gravestones up and out of the photo. Huge emotional impact, though.

Very good!

invokes the challenge title nicely - he's very much alone and the crowd in this case have to be represented by 'tokens' but to him at least they are very real. Not just white slabs but names, faces, laughs and mannerisms that we cant see and won't get to.

This means so much to all. The image reminds me that we are not invisable and we will always leave behind something to be thought about in the future.

That's sad. His slumped body language and hidden face contribute mightily to the mood, and your title is perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great expression

Very good interpretation of the challenge! Nicely executed as well.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/29/2007 02:21:53 AM
I really like this shot, very well composed. I'd be curious though if I'd like it even more with a greater DOF to get all the tombstones in focus.

Powerfull image and nicely taken. Good work!

nice

Nice photo. Would've loved to see more of the man's face. Perhaps more included in the foreground to see a name of someone he may have been visiting, otherwise, nice photo and moment.

Poignant.

This is a wonderful photo! I can even read some of the tombstones.

I really love the emotion in this one. Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 07:23:34 AM
The composition looks a little too tight around the man. I like to see more space on left and top.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 06:05:31 AM
Evocative. Clear statement. Well done. And...I understand.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 01:06:41 AM
Bingo! This should have nailed it. Outstanding!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/28/2007 12:49:32 AM
This picture was very moving for me. I think that it really captures the "alone" theme. Nice work
  Photographer found comment helpful.

The absolute best interpretation of a challenge Ive seen in a very long time.
You nailed it! 10+
