    My main thoughts on this one is that it's much too dark. I would guess that at least another 2 stops would be needed to get the subject matter across clearly.

    It's a great shot and I agree with Chris of Arabia, It's a little too dark.

    But one thing I would also like to suggest is a more in-between resolution copy for the preview, The preview you have is too small to gather enough information and the full is too big to fit my screen I can only see parts at a time. Somewhere around 800 px wide should work nicely as a preview and the link to the full is fine.

    As I have two Brothers in the military I do find shots of this nature interesting.

    Yes it may have turned out better if it was lighter but that was the result I wanted for the whole purpose of the photo was to show that they are out late into the dark night standing watch. If your trying to prove a point its not working.

    I like the mood the photo convey, I mean, standing guard is suppose secretive and not well lighted if that make any sense.
