i dont see the war. i see a good looking guy wearing nikes (not war), dark jeans and a jacket, all looking like new cloths nothing that would remind me of war.

except the frizzling cliché black and white!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it needs grunge, a fence, a building that is destroyed or ruins, an old castle (not too terribly hard to find in germany, and there are always parts that aren't in best condition). And you (assuming that is you) need to wear worn cloths that look like you haven't been shopping in the last 6 months. Even better would be more expressive posture. Think about it, do you want to be "the hero, a soldier.." or a victim, someone who suffered for a long time? Right now you have a hero posture, but there is nothing that alludes to war. At least hold a gun (airsoft) if you want modern warfare (no not the game!)

keep us posted :)

The "War" is metaphorically, it' s just the title, no need to tell me what a real war should look like lol.
I' m not trying to show you physical destruction and bombs and guns and all that, it' s all about atmosphere and making subtle stuff.
And yes it is me, and no I haven' t been shopping for the last 6 months :D
thanks for the critique(VT)

This sounds like a challenge...

Who would be up for a photomanip competition related to that sort of thing..? I think it sounds fun!! The "Roma Challenge" :D hehe But seriously, I think that the image is actually too blurry other than the focal.. The trees and stuff just look like they should be clearer to me..? Anyone else think that or maybe it's my personal preference?

it is nice to see gratitude for the time and thought that goes into longer critiques. Not everyone respects that :)

Maybe my critique did not apply to your objective, but I hope it was at least inspirational.

You have freedom, talent and a camera.... ;)

Well glad Roma likes the idea, but this would be different than the "Great Manipulation Challenge". It would be about the war-like feel and include new images..? And epically be renamed after Roma!! :D Hehe
