    I had a great oppurtunity to photograph President Bush while giving a speech during a pit stop to the Olympics. I have a ton but this is one of my favs.

    but whats with the light rays in the bottom left? they are distracting. maybe photoshop could help them out.

    Pretty cool. Not every day you get up close to take a photo of the President. Unless you do it all the time lol. Nice photo.

    I tried to do a bit of dodging and burning but it didnt look right. As far as clone tool or anything like that...no, that would be unethical and I would loose my job.

    Seriously, how did you get so close? Do you have a press pass, or is the general public allowed to get that close? Good shot.



    And you should post this in the 'someone famous' thread, because he's certainly well known around the world.

    Yes, I had a press pass. There were concrete barriers blocking the crowd from getting within 10ft of the stage.

    That makes sense, as I can only imagine how incredibly tight the security is.
