The chair in this photo was given to Saddam Hussein by Yasser Arafat and now resides in Al Faw Palace (Camp Victory), Iraq.

Kinda thought this would do better. Guess I chose the wrong challenge for this...

The image is well done. The colors are rich; focus is great; HDR? The composition is balanced, nice symmetry. Well presented image, 7. With that said, I just don't find a "compelling story" behind the photo. Maybe if this was taken say five years ago, I would have said wow. But the subject of a soldier on Saddam's throne seems over done. It seems every soldier/contractor who's been deployed has the obligatory pic on the throne and there are hundreds of pics of someone on the throne (albeit not well done as this image). I guess the casual pose doesn't give me a sense of a "compelling story." Just this viewer's opinion...

Can't help feeling that this would benefit from being level. Seems to list to one side... might be my eyes I guess.

for real? The slight tilt subtracts for me as do the strong red tones. Otherwise, it's a solid portrait.

And a slimy one at that considering the pose.
