I would like to dedicate this image to all our fallen heroes and their loved ones; please know you will be remembered and appreciated forever.
(This image is a composite of three photos, one of a soldier at Fort Polk, Louisiana, one of a flag taken at Spanish Lake in Iberia Parish, one of a country road connecting the rice fields near Kaplan, Louisiana. The background layer is the rice field road; I selected and pasted the flag and the soldier onto this background and used the sliders in the layers palette to control opacity and to give them an other worldly look. The background had the Orton effect applied. All this was done in PhotoShop Elements 6.0 for Macs).
This image was inspired by Mark Graham my husband’s cousin, who gave his life in Iraq
