I got the Robert E Lee bobblehead at the opening weekend of the American Civil War Center at Tredegar in Richmond, Virginia. They also have Lincoln and Grant, but neither seemed appropriate for display at the Georgia Capitol, ya know?

Taken just inches from where I took my "Your Occupation II" entry. I was tempted to use those pens for a backdrop.

nice mage. good emphasis on the bobble head's movement. i like how the dog is sort of moving the viewer's eye to robert e. lee standing behind him. even the reflection was a nice add to this one.

In b/w: Comes off as a very nice vignette. Good choice of collection and setup. Great use of long exposure to bobble Mr. Lee. Lighting is a bit un-dynamic, but tonality makes up for a lot of what the lighting takes away.

Great Job. Nice finesse.
