Eloquent. Composition and restraint.

Really strong image that could possibly be brought out even more with additional processing.

Quite astonishing conditions though.

Terrific photo, Dennis. One thing that lessens the impact for me is that it's unclear (visually) what is going on -- I can imagine a bomb aftermath, with a man in a hazmat suit in the background wreckage. Anyway, the picture definitely draws one in to read your notes, so the true story becomes clear.

Didn't post to this challenge so didn't vote but this is a 10+, world class photo with timely and poignent content most of us never see and can't report on. But that excuse doesn't diminish the impact of this photo. Thanks for bring real content to the dpc.

really powerful image, I think the BW conversion really helps with the mood here. If only both of the people in the back ground were standing in between the poles.

That is kindof sad. Good photo journalism shot. Would expect to see something like this in a magazine.

Beautiful photograph. The expression and placement of the dog adds to the feeling of destruction and melancholy. Lovely composition and tones. 9/10
