No man is a rock nor an island; though standing a post may seem lonely one is never truly alone.

Wonderful and moving shot.

Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in Afghanistan
Time
Around 9 AM
Lighting
The lighting was perfect! The sun was already out.
Equipment
I used canon 1Ds mark ii hand held.
Inspiration
Everything that was happening around me at that time of my life is what inspired me to take all these photographs. We were all deployed and we were all in it together.
Editing
Yes. This is an HDR photograph. I processed it with photomatix
In my camera bag
Currently, Sony Rx1Rii and it's a beast!
Feedback
Always look around and see what's happening around yourself. Sometimes we get too caught up on the things that are in front of us that we miss other moments that's are happening around us. This photo almost didn't happen because I had my back to him. But as soon as I turned around and saw him overlook, I was ready to take it. Familiarize your self well with your equipment. Sometimes you only get one chance to make a great image.
