November 2019 - Veteran's Memorial

About the Image(s)

Phantom 4 Pro (still flying) ISO 400 F8 1/250 sec.
The subject is the Veterans Memorial portion of the City Cemetery at Cle Elum. Harsh lighting and some wind. Balanced things out in PS 5.1. Added some saturation to the greens.
The Tablet Marker just to the right of the left gun is for a local kid. Douglas Munro is the only Coast Guardsman to earn the Medal of Honor. He was piloting a landing craft at the Battle of Guadalcanal and noticed a Battalion of Marines completely cut off and surrounded by the Japanese defenders. Munro engaged the Japanese with his machine gun while other boats extracted the Marines and relocated them to a safer landing spot. Yep, it got him killed.

I think this is an interesting image and just in time for Veterans Day. I like the composition and the way you have handled the subject.   Posted: 11/09/2019 16:02:34
