Curious to see how this one is received. It was shot (lying on the ground)with a wide open aperture, focused on the bayonet/rifle, which as a consequence is all that is sharply focused. The individuals face (which is normally the focal point of a shot) is therefore deliberately blurred. But if you had a bayonet in your face - what would you be focused on? If I did it again I'd be tempted to have the sun directly behind him, and accept the sky would be completely blown out.

Exif: F Number: 4, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/200 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 60.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi
