Superb shot. Love the graduated sky and the sense of duty/ lonliness & vigilance that I get from it. Suprised you never made it as a print, im sure it would sell

Great shot - I hadn't seen this one (didn't do this challenge nor vote it.) I love the red light in the mornings and evenings because of the dust. Now the dust I could live without, but it does indeed do nice things with light. Well seen and presented.

Well shit! Not sure how people don't sense the emotion from this one. The title helps it along, but doesn't define it completely. I'm feelin it. Good entry. Not a bad placement!

A good shot with a beautiful sky. The title of this image saves it a bit, as it would be hard to guess the soldier's emotion without an understanding of current events. Good capture.

Beautifully executed and evokes strong emotion for me as my son is in Iraq as we speak.

Nice shot but where is the emotion?
07/27/2007 09:08:52 PM
The picture with the title is heart renderiing. At first I thought is was a lifeguard shack at the beach, Wondered what extreme emotion? and then read the title, then OMG,

lovely silhouette that portrays lonliness for the folks back home

Very pretty shot, but I'm not getting a particular emotion.

A beautiful backlit (sunrise?) shot that communicates very effectively a difficult task.
