Time is up everyone!!!!


Airfrogusmc – “Combat Veteran” The contrast and emotion in this photo is flawless. His eyes tell where he’s been and his expression shows a mournful wisdom. Your capture makes me want to listen to his story. Thanks for your entry.

UK_Tomcat_Fan – “Pearl Harbor Survivor” I love your aircraft photography. Couldn’t be a more perfect time for this photo to be entered “70 years after it’s trials” In this one I wish the pilot and more of the fuselage was visible. Great photo and thanks for your entry.

Maureen Souza – “Site of the Battle of New Orleans” I like this photo and can only imagine what it was like for the soldiers to stand their ground and fight behind those cannons. I wish none of the tree was cut off. I know it’s not the subject, but I focus on that fact when look at the photo. Thanks for entering (and the PM last competition)

Kevan – “Gauntlets, of the weekend chore variety” I feel the internal strife when I see this image. LOL. It invokes thoughts of strain and frustration. Nicely done and thank you.

Surgeonhawkeye – “no title” Nice sharp photo, but I wish it had more of a point of view. Maybe the background containing the battle field instead of just sky. Thanks for your entry, but I can’t consider your photo due to the title rule. Sorry I PM’d you so late.

Philk54 – “Defense of the Union - Fort Sumter” Another cool photo that makes me wonder what they must have gone through. On this one I wish I could see the area the gun team had to work with. Very nice and thank you for your entry.

Eastcoastsponger – “Hand to Hand Combat” You sure did tell the whole story with this one. Great photo. It must have been a great fight to see. Thanks for sharing that one with us.

GarryKirsch – “Battling Geese” Nice geese, but it seems a bit blown out and soft. Not sure if it’s the light reflecting off the water or not. Thanks for entering.

PINNACLE –“ Rutting Reds “ Very sharp and vibrant photo. I’m not sure if it’s the framing, or the angle the photo was taken from, but I can’t find that spot of the photo that shows the violence of the situation. It must have been quite a rush to photograph that. Thank you.


Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to contribute. I enjoyed everyone’s entry and I appreciate your patience with me extending the time until I returned from the field. It’s more challenging than I thought to evaluate photos.

Airfrogusmc , you are the winner. Just an outstanding photograph . Congratulations and thank you for sharing that photo with us.

Thanks WOW I'm very humbled by all the great entries this week and honored to have been in this fine company.

I wish I could take more credit but I was just privileged enough to be there to capture this amazing man. We talked for some time and the world is a much better place because of men like Tony.

Thank you and way to go everyone this week. I will try and get a new challenge up later tonight.
