LAST vision after combat

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Last Vision After Combat
Last Vision After Combat
I placed my tripod mounted elan 7 with the 28-90 lens about a foot under the hand . I was down as low as I could get. I then set the apeature at min DOF to blur everything but the soldiers hand. I specifically tilt the camera to give the illusion that the soldier was bending over.

Oh Donna! This photo does what we all want our photos to do. It DEMANDS the viewer stop and take it in... and in doing so the viewer is moved. Thanks for sharing. Ed
