Fight poverty not war

Nikon D70 @ 70mm, 1/2000 sec, f/4.5, ISO 200

I like this one.

The colours in this shot are quite clearly photoshopped, but I felt that the bright bold colours of the original didn't really fit the overall mood and feel of the shot.

For me this shot - and more importantly, the people in the shot - convey what this day meant for the different people there. On the one hand you've got the young girl smiling happily, enjoying herself and the glorious weather. Then you've got a few people who look plain bored - the march is almost over and it's probably just as well for them. And then you've got the man in the foreground on the left hand side, holding his hand written placard, standing alone. He looks as if he really cares: he's there for a reason.

Stumbled on your site. It is good to see that some digital photographers understand the way to make a good image, and not just take it. I was born in Dunbarton, Scotland and we came to the US when I was young, so I appreciate seeing what living in Scotland may be like, through your eyes. Have tagged your site on my blog:
State of the Arts for the Artist
Have been back to Ireland many times, but yet to visit the town Dunbarton 'where civilization ends, and the highlands begin', as told to me by a Scotsman.
