War And Love

I just wanted to share this here also as it's receiving so much moving feedback. If one image can make such a deep impact, it would be nice to share it with as many people as possible.
This is an image I made for a local surplus stores photo contest that has a theme of war and love.

Why can't you upload it to FAA?

Fantastic and thought provoking. One of my sons is a soldier so this really pulls at my heart-strings.

Got it now. There was something buggy yesterday.

There were some upload issues running around, hopefully fixed now.

Beautiful piece.....

Are you going to sell prints here? It actually moved me enough to try and buy one this morning but you haven't got it listed for sale.

Thank you. I'm still thinking if I should put it to sale. It just has so much personal weight.

No worries, I felt it myself.

Extremely well done and emotional image.

This is a captivating, well made photograph, Tomi.

I would love to know more about it.

Were you a war correspondent? If so, during which war did you make this photograph?

Hi Tomi, how wonderful and touching your photograph is. I've had these two available for several years and for me, I have an emotional connection and a story / message that is being told within both of them. Though many people will be captivated and moved with "war" imagery, I have found that they don't make for good sales. (or at least not mine). Weather you decided to put it up for sale or not, thank you for sharing your work with others.

Oh no no. Like I said that image was made specifically for the contest. Theres me and my daughter originally sitting in our living room. Rest of the scene is made afterwards. Lot's of photoshopping then.

This was just for fun. Not my image, and certainly not for sale.

This image, in a sense, involves love and war:

Thank you, Tomi. I appreciate your clarifying this.

It is certainly a moving image, no matter how it was made.
