Come on Sandwedge...clearly you don't know photography, if you think Allen's shot is the winner? :p

Great shot Allen!

I don't think most folks have ever taken a photo that addresses this subject. Time to move on with a theme that isn't so limiting.

That said ... Allen your photo is a very good one and speaks to the subject very nicely.

Congrats to Allen. I looked hard all week for something heroic to photograph & came up empty handed.


Life is hard...but I just take it one photograph at a time.

I tried to think of something unique yet not too limiting. I actually thought most people would have some photos that would work -soldiers, memorials, coaches, public servants, personal heroes, etc...
