    Paulo, this is such a simple shot, but it is so well executed that's it's Outstanding!!!!!!!!!!. I like the perspective, shadows, lighting, composition and clarity. Well done.

Paulo, I also like the perspective, lighting and shadows. However, that blurred foreground bothers me. Sometimes blur is good, like blurring the background to make a flower stand out. But in this case I think it is just distracting and the picture needs more depth of field. I'd be curious what it would look like if you stopped it down all the way and tried again.

First of all thanks for your comments.

Regarding to the blurring: It was a personal choice. I wanted to draw the attention to the screws so I focused the middle screw and reduced the DOF but I agree it could have worked to with a big DOF.

Best regards.

This is a great "feel" shot. I think you have captured the true essence of these soldiers just before battle ...

Well done!
