Happy Veterans Day

Today is the day we remember all the living heroes of all the wars. Those dedicated men and woman who obeyed the call of their Country to serve and protect.

Obviously I played around with this photo more than normal. I changed the depth of field and experimented with the curves function to try and lighten the stature. Not my best work but I am happy with it.

NIKON D7100 1/250 second F/8.0 ISO 200 65 mm (35mm equiv.)

I appreciate all the comments – I find them very encouraging. My primary photography is flowers and landscapes along with my grandkids.

Most of my photos are, “as they were taken.” I do work with lighting or darkening them in many cases (and sometimes I will sharpen them) but I try not to use too much “photo-shopping” If I do adjust them – I try to mention it.

My goal is to I try to keep my photography as photography and not turn it into art. While I do love the retouched photos, I personally think they become art and not photography – just my opinion.
