So most of you know about the famous image taken of the man standing in front of the tanks at Tiananmen Square.

Here is a new angle on that historic image. I believe this one is just as powerful. Giving us a glimpse of what it looked like on the street level before that famous image was taken:

I do remember that image. This new image is just as powerful I think. Especially if you combine it along side the old one.

Its made for water steven. Almost all cases for that use are expensive.:

D700 case: 1500. Or almost half the cost of the camera as well.

I'll just get the bag if ever I get one :lol:

I know they are expensive Omar... I could understand those DSLR cases but I just thought the P&S version is cheap :lol:

Yes ive never seen that alternate angle. A moment just before the tanks approach. Even then "tank man" is very strong in his stance.

You know what else steven. The canon version is the least expensive under water case for it :shock:

Other than the birds chest being blown out like Omar said, I think it's a pretty good shot from what I can tell.

Hey, if anyone here play Fallout: New Vegas, the third DLC for it comes out on July 19 and is called "Old World Blues". Not much has been released on it yet, but here are three screen shots that Bethesda has released (top three shots on page, click for bigger).
