Desert Storm/ Kuwait City March 17, 1991. Scanned from photo. Dot in head is a cigarette, not noise. War can be hell.

It's great to meet you and your work. I find this a very very subtle composition with the little spots (sorry to name them so) both dark and light. I don't know if this is an unusual comment, given there's strong contrast between the horizon zones. I find this portrait composed and thoughtful. #1135621

This is a scanned photo and probably not a great job in PS in trying to clean it up. This is actually my first attempt back in 1991 to try any type of photography. I didn't really get the bug until 2005 with my first digtal camera. I do appreciate the comment's Marilyn. Thank You. #7586367

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
