Great shot, Ann: he does look done in and battle weary.
Very well captured expression.
Ronnie.

Certainly manages to indicate someone worn out and exhausted. Clearly a fine actor and a great image.

He's certainly a character Ann, so photogenic and also a very nice guy!
Like the processing on this one, that's a fine expression captured - hope you had a great day today?

Couldn't have captured a more appropriate pose and expression, Ann. Spot on. Like the detail here, the scruffy look to his uniform is in keeping with the situation he is portraying.

No need to batter him into submission to get his photo, Ann. Excellent crop, and the touch of topaz(?) is spot on.

The attention to his face is way ahead of the attention to his uniform and cap, he should be a lot grottier in my opinion to be realistic. The parade ground is quickly forgotten when soldiers get into battle, caps are used for many things other than carrying insignia into battle, he looks apart from his face too fresh and his eyes are quite white.

More grot from the producers would have given you a better subject to photograph, your part is very good but the uniform just looks too clean and tidy.

Some of the great war movies of recent times had raised the bar in make up and costume, it's hard to cut corners and still get the end result right.
