Robert Capa's photos, especially the ones from D-Day and other war photography, were some of the first photos that I can remember having an impact on me. His shots from D-Day, in particular, conveyed the chaos that surrounded him in his photographs with strange angles and motion blur, teleporting you there to that moment allowing the viewer to feel what he felt. This shot is a tribute to his photograpy's impact on me as both photographer and a person.

I like this...I keep expecting to see a soldier in the water

Very haunting...it's as if the image was snapped as the photographer was falling to the ground. This is the sort of image that grows on you the more time the viewer spends with it...at least for me...its the suspense and anticipation...very nice.

Well done. My father had a collection of books of war photography in his den. As a child I would go in there and page through them- thinking about war, the photographers in it's midst, and even admiring the starkness of many of the images. This is a good tribute.

Yes, it does look just like that famous D-Day landing image. I keep expecting to see that foreground guy in the water, reaching out. As I'm sure you'll know (but others here may not) Capa took over 100 photographs of the landings but following a darkroom blunder by someone else, only eleven survived. I suppose it's a good thing in a way: the remaining frames are all the more special for their unintended rarity.

I just slipped and fell on my side on the ice, and this is what I see as I look up.

That actually WORKS in the Capa-esque way. Congrats!
