Bill, I was looking at your beautiful gallery photos, when I saw this striking finalist...belated Congratulations! on it.
Technically, it's so perfect in clarity, lighting, etc. But it makes me sad to see those chains, and the way he's holding his wings seems so contrary to the typically proud and majestic portraits of America's symbol. Clearly, I'm in a serious mood tonight! #5341918
