I like the conversion and the look on his face is very interesting. Not sure what to make of it.

This was out in front of that proposed community center/mosque a few blocks from the WTC site. For the shot itself I used the orange filter option in camera. It cleans up really well in DPP.

this is a great shot, the conversion definately adds character to the whole thing.

I like this quite a bit. Controversial topic to say the least right now but powerful image.

Great shot, Mike, thanks for sharing. A controversial topic, indeed, one that creates a lot of charged emotions in its debaters. And it's precisely this lack of emotion on the face of this protester which makes this shot so compelling to me. He obviously has very strong feelings on this matter or he wouldn't be there with his signs. His peaceful quiet look conveys serenity and confidence in his message, which is very refreshing in our current heated political climate. Great capture.

Thanks gang! I put this up on my Cnn Ireport, haven't heard from CNN yet though ;) I was roughly 30-40 yards from him when I shot this, I cropped it down. I debated going 1d3 just for a better photojournalism rig. When I first got into photography I wanted to do combat/wildlife photography for NatGeo or something. I make it a point to take a pic a day down there now.
