I am doing this one by request so no flashy title. My Dad was in the Korean War, not that he was ever on a patrol or in a platoon like these guys but the memorial still stands in honor for people like him who did serve. He never comments on my photos but has become a wiz at the Kindle Fire HD I got him so hopefully he can surf to it and enjoy the photo or THE MOM can take him to it (HINT HINT).
This shot was a bit of a nightmare to get because the light was horrible and I could not focus off the viewfinder at all because it was just too dark to see. Switching to live view I could manual focus the best I could with a small screen and hoped for the best. I aimed focus at the face because it was the most dramatic. I think in the end I captured the essence of the memorial.
