I found your subject matter quite thought provoking, particularly at this time of year. I would like to have heard a little more about what you were trying to achieve when taking this picture, but having said that, I always like it when an image gets me thinking.

I have done a little modification...nothing major in any way. I liked the placing of the objects within the picture and the borders that you have added to frame it; I just felt the colours were a little dull and needed brightening to place more impact on what was happening within the image. I use Corel Paint Shop Pro and so have used that to reduce the noise, to sharpen the focus and to brighten the colours with a blue filter to lift the sky. I think this helps to make the helicopter and the winch with the casualty on stand out a little more against the sky and gives more contrast which then allows for more impact.

Well done on a thought provoking image.

Like the mod like the original too. Good strong powerful image really like the 'spiteful' crop of the chopper and I like also the way the images link together from top to bottom.

There is a good sense of tension here created through the diagonal composition and also the blurring of the roto blades.

The colours are very mutted and a like Donna's mod but I think your original because it is so strong works just perfectly.

Robert, like your mod! Works well and definitely adds to the drama. Unfortunately, it's the 'curves' function that is currently 'defunct' with my PSP.
