This picture made all of my heart and soul from my niece's husband who served in Iraq for several years, risked his life and six time was near death. When I was creating this picture I had no political agenda in my mind that I wanted to express.

Very touching. I have just sat and looked at this for a bit. I have had to many friends who have fought and come back not quite the same, or missed the birth of their babies. My sister is in the Military now and has gone over once already, she found it so difficult to blend back into "civilization" once she came home. This places such a touch of humanity to such a rough inhumane situation.

I find strange this relation between new precious life and war. and what was the baby doing between soldier dad's legs, when should have been in his arms? it may be that I misunderstood, but I got this: soldiers are lacking human emotions, they are dehumanized so that they are able to kill during war, that's why the baby is sitting between his feet, and a warning: kill me, sais the soldier, but there will be others to come, you can never kill us all, which means that his new born is just another sacrifice for the "sake" of war. it was the onlye baby picture I did not give like because og this, even though the picture is technically well made, sorry :(

Have you gotten the point yet? Have you come back to this page and read the comments other people have posted, including the mother of this darling child and wife of the soldier who is the father of this darling child? I think an apology from you on this site is due to Magdi. You're new to ViewBug. Hopefully you've learned that constructive criticism is welcome. Vicious and uneducated attacks are not.

I do not like to write long feedback because members are respect my short thoughtful and respectful comments also. Of course they know me ( all over the world ) as a great, powerful, talented and one of the most popular photographer. Let me explain couple of things what do I think about photography. Photography is a really SPECIAL ART with psychical, emotional feelings when we capture something UNIQUE and keep it FOREVER to REMEMBER even SHARE WITH OTHERS. More than a simple hobby or any other activity because we have to use our artistic eyes, creative sides, talents, imaginations, emotional feelings, passions to capture a RESULT OF A MOMENTS. Mother Nature is full with wonderful things so we need to stop in our busy life and do not pass that moments what life has bestowed and forget forever. With camera we can document those unique unforgettable moments whether the world of black and white or of color. Photography is reflecting a small piece of God’s handwork also. Photography is gives us so many reason to travel all over the world, discover new places, meet with people, create new friends, makes our life more interesting, powerful and richer. One of the best way to show different side of the people, helps to see the world a different ways through our eyes also and inspired us to learn more. Photography is a SPECIAL PAINTING. The brush is the camera, the lights our heart and soul is the paints to CREATE OUR WORLD without problems, sadness. Unfortunately tell us bad things also that happen in the world. Photography is CAPTURE THE WONDERS OF NATURE AND LIFE and SHOWS DIFFERENTLY with new perspectives you might not see usually or never seen before. All my pictures are full with, joy, love, care, passion, emotional feelings, and showing all those things what I wrote above. This picture made all of my heart and soul from my niece's husband who served in Iraq for several years, risked his life and six time was near death. When I was creating this picture I had no political agenda in my mind that I wanted to express. I wanted to capture the feeling of security, protection and love of new life in a time when there is war present in this particular family’s life. Just a couple of numbers from this picture: 12 times ( two times contest finalist ) winner by judges, over 7600 times viewed, over 120 great, wonderful and thoughtful comments. As a professional photographer I’m so proud all of my images even this one because shows a wonderful moment, new life, concern, protect, care, connection between son and his proud father. Photography is a special art without personal negativity, minorities, ethnic, politics feelings. Read my explanation over and over again to understand better what does it mean Photography. Also read all these comments and think about what did you write. If you respect this website, members the best way to apologize to the baby’s mother. Her name is on this website “amylay” ! Taking pictures is my life, inspiration, passion what never give up because completed me as a success person. If someone ( special me ) has over 16 thousand followers and over a 100 awarded images by judges probably a success and very creative photographer here and her private life also :-) I hope you enjoyed all of my other images as much as I enjoyed creating and sharing them. THANK YOU FOR ALL OF MY FOLLOWERS RESPECT, THEIRS WONDERFUL,THOUGHTFUL COMMENTS AND ENJOYING MY IMAGES. I REALLY APPRECIATE ! WISH THE BEST AND GOD BLESS YOU ALL ! LOVE MAGDI :-)

Let me publish Adriana22 comment: Adriana22 Dear Magdi, that really was a long message, but my opinion is that speaking our minds is the best way to communicate, because this world tries to teach us everyday to dress anything in layers and layers and to make it seem anything but what it actually is. I agree with almost everything that you wrote about photography. You are more experienced than me, yes, (and very proud!, that is also good and bad sometimes). you needn't let me know about you accomplishments, when I follow someone I usually at least inspect the top awards, and see their best shots, I do not follow everyone on this site, except what I consider the best, I wish to learn from the best! But I do not agree to apologize. I shall never apologize except when I disrespect someone. I did not disrespect you. It was my own opinion on this shot, and I keep it as mine. Photography also reveals different things to different persons, and that is what it revealed to me. You should accept other opinions in a mature way. I also have two family member in the army: my father who was a general, and my bigger brother. I consider going to war the stupidest thing ever, because the real reasons behind wars are usually geopolitical/ resources advantages, and not whatever the media tries to make us believe. Young man are dying in vain for the sake of...enriching others, without even knowing! And there, in war, they change! They loose a big part of their human abilities, seeing dead children women in the crossfire. They have less sensibility left because their souls had seen inhuman suffering. Guns do not conquer liberty, and peace. And when you leave behind a pregnant wife, for example, and she does not know if she'll see you again,. at least in one piece.....I know how hard it is to redraw from the army, the huge amounts of money they put you to pay to leave this soldier life. I know many of this respectful job unders. That is why you should consider that my opinion is as good as any others. Regards

I think if someone proud of her/his talent it's not a bad thing. I do not follow each members also, but respect theirs images even if it's really bad or doesn't show, tell anything. We are different, with different personality, cultures, approach and seeing different ways pictures. Photography is a special art and you have to understand this wonderful world. You can comment your personal negativity if you want but do not you get away with anything. Members are enjoying this site, talk about photography, ask each other about new technics, effect, lights, friendships are concluded or just wanna an intelligent conversation.

For the record (and I know I'm going to regret saying anything), the comment before mine is so out of line, I'm flabbergasted. Magdi, the photo is beautiful and says nothing of what that person said. It says 'i will protect you and all to come'. I wish I could say I was speechless by her words but obviously I'm not. I hope this one wins hands down.

WHOOOOT CONGRATS, MG !! you ROCK :):)

----------------

I'm sorry.. but I completely agree with Gracie here... I'm SHOCKED by Adriana and her judgmental view here...

To me... this picture in NO way says or indicates "war" or anything negative. Just because a soldier is in it?

Maybe you read into it too much, Adriana. but you're out of line. This picture says. "I will always protect you. and that you're SAFE with me".

let's leave out your politics and personal opinions and just say CONGRATS.. let's give praise, not judgement, huh, Adriana. I believe you're reading into this in a way no one else here is.

So live up your FInalist award, MG and brush off any "newbie" negativity. you NAILED this shot..and I for one am proud of it and the message behind it. :):)

Next time.. maybe send comments like that privately, Adriana...not in this matter.

if I am to apologize, it's only because I did not sent my message in private. And I apologize for it, I did not made that on purpose. I still keep my opinion on what the shot transmits to me, personally. You should all accept that everyone has the right to their own opinion. That is what democracy is about! Maybe each of us has their own reasons to think from different perspectives about the shot. I knew it was a finalist shot, that is when I commented (unfortunately in public), and I follow the photographer's work, majority of it I look up to. Babies are so...soft, fragile, it is written love all over them. War never makes babies! Going to war never protects babies, it only kills other mother's babies! That is war. And a soldier represents war.

As a Woman who spent time on active duty as a US Marine, with a husband who retired from the Marine Corps, who left when our second son was but two weeks old, I would like to say that this image is beautiful to me. I understand sentiments of the sadness, the fear, the hatred of war, but do we need to feel our Marines, Sailors, Airmen, and Soldiers represent war? I didn't join the Marines because I wanted to go to war - neither did my husband, although he spent his time at war. My grandfather, my father, my brothers, my nephews and my friends did not join because they wanted to represent war - they joined for freedom - for their freedom, for your freedom and the freedom of their wifes, their children, their family and friends - and those they never met, or would ever meet. Our servicemen and women should represent freedom - not war in everyones mind- we are not war - we only go to war to protect and defend and the calling of our Commander in Chief - Our President. Images such as this represent, hope - hope for our future which lies at the serviceman feet.
