Vietnam Memorial, Veteran's Day 2006. James C. Spinuzzi, USMC. KIA January 24, 1966.

My mom's best friend's older brother. He and my mom share a birthday. His sister has never made it to the wall. I make sure to go every year for her. This year I asked the guys who work the wall to make a rubbing for her.

Seriously emotive and powerful composition; might have liked it a little better without the shadow on the hand.

Nice lighting on the hands and I like the angle you have taken this at, I think a small white frame might have helped to bring out the black of the monument a little more but thats just one opinion.

The subject matter makes this poignant and there is a good coverage from white through to black.7
