Good close-up of armor detail. Looks sharp. Good cropping. Shows you were able to spot a very interesting part of the whole scene. You cloned out most of the background, but not all. For me, it would look better to have gotten out all of the background; the light area to the right of the soldier distracts me from the subject.   Posted: 08/04/2019 09:19:41

Taken at the UMass meeting this year? I would have tried to include more of the opponent. My first reaction to the image was this was in a museum (Higgins Museum in Worcester?). Including the other person would make it a more dynamic image.   Posted: 08/05/2019 13:47:34

You have wonderful details and clarity in this image. You did a nice job of blacking out the background so the focus is on the armor. I think including the blurred opponent to the right of the frame, increases the interest and adds to the story. I have no suggestions for improvement. Great job!   Posted: 08/05/2019 17:56:35

I like how you have handled the armor on your "warrior", it has great color, sharpness and exposure. I like the idea of the blurred opponent to the right. I think I would have tried to retain more of its shape and substance.   Posted: 08/07/2019 07:40:13

interesting subject and details, nice work on ps to clean up the background, can't image the amount of work/efforts involve with that! just in case you got a chance to go back in PS, see if further work can be done around the right neck and left helmet to clean up the edges. Good image.   Posted: 08/12/2019 10:46:00

It is an interesting image captured in the battle ground. I would agree that the blurred out most of the background made the subject more distinct. I think that keeping the blurred opponent in the right would produce a sense of counteracting.   Posted: 08/20/2019 01:12:40
