    As a Veteran, I can tell you that there is not enough room on this string to go into all the thoughts that are going through his head as he walks along the edge of those flags. Today I pulled over and got out of my car to stand at attention to honor a fallen Soldier as his Casket was taken from the plane at Charleston AFB. They were on their way to the funeral home where his Wife and Child will say their last "Goodbye". I can't begin to tell you all the thoughts that were going through my mind at the time. RIP young man!
    On this Memorial Weekend I wish to say Thank You to all the Veterans (Past and Present, Americans and Non) for their commitments to their Country.

    Lightbulb Let us also remember...

    "The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other guy die for his."
    — George S. Patton Jr.

    Remembering and taking a moment for those who have fallen and given the most they could, for the rest of us, on Memorial Day and every day.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    But does the edit "improve" the image?

    It was more about the scene than the quality of the image. It was a one time snap shot. He never stopped walking so what ever settings I had the camera on was the only shot I got.

    Another attempt to better a not so technically good image.
