The half hidden expression makes his shot. Lighting a little harsh?

This is a powerful and amazing image that deserves nothing less than 10. I think that the harsh lighting really helps to drive this image home and helps to bring the reality of this war to the viewer. God bless this fallen hero and his family and friends.

Nivr lighting here, I like that you didn't try to make the skin on his back look all pretty either though it really gives a great energy to this. Cool tattoo.
