Noel,

Really nice silhouette. Looks like an early morning in mid-winter, judging by the coat and sun angle. It's ironic that I saw your image tonight - I visited the Tomb of the Unknowns just this this morning, and saw a wreath laying. I've performed there about 15 times (as a member of The US Air Force Band), and seeing the effect it has on people is always amazing.

I have a different view of a Tomb Guard in my gallery as well. It's always a moving and dramatic subject.

Again, Noel, your great eye, skill, and discipline have served, pehaps, a larger purpose: evoking such a visceral and profound feeling of loss, duty, memory, hope. Bravo, and thank you.
