I respect what you did for the family, but were you limited to where you could move? The traditional shots I'd expect of the Bugler playing taps and the riflemen seem off to me; there should be more profile, rather than frontal perspective.

The bugler is my favorite.


2 Samuel 9:7-8, "So David said to him, “Do not fear, for I will surely show you kindness for Jonathan your father’s sake, and will restore to you all the land of Saul your grandfather; and you shall eat bread at my table continually.” Then he bowed himself, and said, “What is your servant, that you should look upon such a dead dog as I?”

I wnt say they are a nice series of pics as it is th wrong word for the occasion, I will say you did a great job!

I was on google earth looking at Arlington cemetery and I was astounded at the number of headstones and the size of the place

Mankind is so unkind

The end of the song should be changed to "For the land of the free, BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE." Our freedom is due to the brave men and women of our armed forces. Freedom is most important, when you are not free. My thanks will never be enough, for those whom have given there all.

ANC is over 600 acres... not all of those resting there are casualties of war rather than an honorable place for those who have kept the US and the rest of the Free World FREE. If you'd want to see the ones who perished in WW II ... they are primarily at 24 cemeteries outside the US ----

Jim, I just saw this. Excellent captures of a solemn moment. It brings back memories, last year I covered the funeral of my uncle at the ANC too. Thanks for sharing. And thanks too to all those who served, laid down their lives for the country, and to those currently serving. Much appreciated.

Funerals are for the living. As much as we honour our fallen, I'd prefer we honoured our not fallen or only tripped a little bit soldiers half as much.

I hope you PP'd those shots some though, they definately need some saturation or channels work. They look a little flat. :)

All,

Thanks for the feedback and comments. I delivered the final album to the widow this morning. Forty 5x7's mounted in a black leather binder. I used matte paper and was pleased with the final results. The widow was very happy with the book and I hope it gives her peace and comfort in the future.

I will say again, America does care for her fallen military...both those who die in combat and those who who served a full career and whose time has run its course.

You did a wonderful job capturing the reverence of the occasion. They were all very moving.

Awesome captures. The DOF of the stones and the bugler, what a moving shot.

The riderless horse is fantastic.

I'd like to go back there with you one day.

Mark,

Thank you. I would love to spend a day there with you and any other POTNers who would like to come. I know the operations officer at Arlington personally and we could schedule a meet on a day where there will be "full honors" funerals planned...we can photograph the ceremony as long as we don't intrude...70-200MM f/4 EF L IS for me.
