Hello Jean! Very good scene. Superb composition. Excellent contrast. Original effect. Very original picture. Greetings from Warszawa!

Dramatic and powerful shot, Jean.
It's so sad that so many lives had to be lost on all sides during the conflict to allow what you see here to be a reality.

Great image here Jean, and you've done well to wait for the young boy to shake the hand of the soldier charging off to war.
Sad, sad shot, but what a testament to the artist/sculptor and many other people who made the erection of the memorial a possibility.

Politics aside, I am awarding this the best I can give (a measly 2 point smiley) in dedication to all (Allies and enemies) who fought to rid the world of such attrocites.

No need to critique the image.
The story tells it all.

Great shot, great tribute.



Cette photo est dans la catégorie "une image vaut mille mots".
L'enfant, l'innocence même, voulant en quelque sorte dire stop ... C'est un moment décisif, symbolique.
Devoir de mémoire. Je n'ai pas les mots.

Bom dia Jean,
To convey such emotion load only even a photo can gather feeling and technical apparatus.
Photo to never forget.

Hi Jean

Great timing to capture the handshake. The sculpture is great and the addition of the boy has made it a little more poignant.

An excellent sculpture with great animation but its the boy who brings it to life. Maybe a symbolic gesture of grattitude from all of us to all of of them who gave their lives so that we can enjoy freedom today.
