When we put up images on FM, theyíre available (and copyable) to the entire internet world, thousands, if not, millions of people. In my opinion, we should never present our nation, our military men and women, in an unflattering manner, no matter the photographic process. We should show the respect due our wonderful country.
In my opinion, your photographic depiction of boy scouts laughing and cavorting in what I assume is a tribute parade to Veteranís day, is not in good taste. The showing of a serviceman, with his gut hanging out (like a woman on the sidewalk) and his eyes shut, is also not respectful.
Shot VA-13 shows a respect for veterans and our country. I think the tonal range is a tad overdone.
Bert, The good thing is that you are entitled to your opinion. What you consider disrespectful I view as what freedom means. Due to the men & women that serve, or have served, children can laugh & have fun without fear of being shot in the streets. For point of reference, My grandfather fought in WWI & WWII. My Father fought in WWII & Korea. I served in Vietnam. My younger brother did 3 tours of Vietnam & served in the first desert storm. My son-in-law is 100% disabled after 2 tours of Iraq and 1 in Afghanistan. I have 2 nephews and a niece there now and another leaving next month for his forth tour. I believe I have an idea of what honor is. As I said you are entitled to your opinion in America, after all that's what we fought for... Jim
