I am a keen amateur, and have been lucky enough to have been published in the books "Dusty Warriors’ and ‘Op.Snakebite’. I’m currently using a 5d mk2, 24-105L,50 1.4, 50 1.8, 580EX2, 2x 420EX,st-e2, amongst other bits and pieces.
For me the kid’s expression of anger and force, with the trooper in the BG makes it a wonderful and connected journalistic image. Thanks for adding it to the Art of the Middle East group.
I agree with Eyal.I think its a look of defiance though…Excellent shot.
Stunning, stunning image…what else could I add?
awesome depth…im not talking about the focus
outstanding picture.. it conveys so much within it.
It’s so sad the children have to grow up in a world like that…Excellent capture though =)
the childs look is the same on either side of the war.
very good capture
Strong and powerful!!!
