Great use of wide angle. The colors are really great. Too bad about the theme (WAR) but you have captured this perfectly. Great Work!!!

Spectacular portrait!!!
Excellent colours.
Wonderful moment.

Powerful image. Your slight softening of the background gives emphasis to the soldier.

~INCREDIBLE image...nothing more to say but well captured and presented...~
11 blu   (1/17/2005 7:37:02 AM)
very strong picture - the very blue sky might be a bit too dominant for me but that's taste.

This is very well captured. It leaves a strong impression. Take care. Barb.
13 Dominique   (1/17/2005 9:23:07 AM)
Very good. Il love
14 Fred Vnoucek   (1/17/2005 9:25:39 AM)
almost perfect, cannot say how it could be better. It is 9.9 somehow nick-picking, because of the shadow in the right down corner. But I wouldn't feel bad to rate this a 10. It tells a story, brilliant photography, good technique .. the opportunity .. everything. wow! thats photography!!!
15 Jouko   (1/17/2005 9:48:54 AM)
One word: EXCELLENT!
16 vsinopoulos   (1/17/2005 10:03:54 AM)
Absolutely amazing shot, great colors and composition.
17 Rudi Van Gestel   (1/17/2005 11:44:40 AM)
The main subject shows a great determined pose! Just great! Great impact! The bg is imho a little too light! Wish that blue would be darker, deeper saturated!
Anyhow: great photo Sergio!

~I came back for a second, well third actually, look and this image is National Geo if not AP material...just a fantastic PJ shot in an amazing part of the world, of a subject that gushes intensity. It absolutely embodies what the journalism category is about, nothing fancy schmancy or manipulated (thank GOD), of a moment that is indelible. Congrats on the image, well deserved~

Impressive colours, composition, sharpness, details and background.
I like the pose of the know it's a very old weapon ;)

Perfect shot, nothing is wrong here!
Thank you for posting Sergio, keep sharing.
Very very well done!!!

Outstanding image!!!
35 perplex (Izzy )   (1/18/2005 6:20:35 PM)
Like Craig, I've come back for a 3rd (or more) look at this. It's stunning. It would be a surefire bestseller on most Stock Libraries.

Probably one of my favourite photos of the last 12 months.
36 April (Cindy Metzger)   (1/18/2005 9:34:51 PM)
All too real. Outstanding capture.

I can feel intensity here. It seems to belong to polisario movement but i'm not sure you tell me. Technically is very well executed and works perfectly under journalism. Congrats.
