    It's a great image. The eyes are absolutely riveting. Geeeze....I'm going to dream about these guys staring at me. I like the conversion work but I wonder if a little stronger blacks might add to the drama. A home run here, Cristóbal.

    If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Thanks Tom, I did try pushing the blacks up, but I lost details on the eyes which I think are very powerful.

    I was concerned that pushing the black might result in a loss of eye detail. And you're right, as I said above, the eyes dominate this image. A wonderful shot, buddy, that captures and emotes some strong feelings..

    Great shot and PP work, Cristóbal. I too am fascinated by the war memorials that are found in many, many european towns and villages.
