Challenge: 1970s (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D70
Location: For Ord military base in Monterey Bay, California
Date: Feb 22, 2005
Aperture: F8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/80th
Galleries: Emotive, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Feb 22, 2005

Post: brightness/contrast, convert to grayscale, crop.

I had to pick between TONS of images. I think this one is emotional and powerful. I wish I didn't have to crop it so tight...but I did because of the distracting elements on the right side of the photo. We'll see how people like it!

Concept is okay but in the 70's the hair would have been much longer with this kind of sign, lighting on his face seems too uneven.

Great job of capturing the '70's, and I like the backlighting on the sleeve.

That could apply to the 21 Century as well as the 1970. Interesting how history always repeats itself. <6>

Nice idea, but not 70's hair style or sideburns.

I only wish my first association was 1970s... but it did come across eventually.
I like the b/w choice here, and the facial expression of the protester.
