Ravages of war


Recommended Posts

Very interesting image. Something a bit off about this guy. He looks like a prop. The beard looks well groomed yet the jacket is soiled, the helmet looks like a relic with that well-placed chin strap. What is the message here?

Cool portrait. The processing certainly is interesting. The blue in his beard is real or from the processing?

What happened to his shades? Took out your reflection? I already know what you look like from your avatar photo...;)




I had the 90mm Elmarit on the M8.2 and shot this from about 50ft away hence no reflection.

The event was a "Dig again for Victory" where a lot of people dress up in military uniforms from the wars and he was dressed as a pensioner from WW1, I cropped the image down from the original post but below is the full size image (62mb as a 16 bit Tiff).
