Really superb photography Edward, and a fine tribute to the man. Interesting to read that Lt William Niven - father of the actor David Niven - lost his life in the same advance in Gallipoli 1915. Brave men indeed.

Very nice rendition Edward. A bit "soft" but that is purely subjective.

Comment by Edward Lever (Photo owner)(4th July 2017)

Thank you for the comment, Rod. The image looks soft because of the very shallow depth of field resulting from shooting at f/1.8. This was intentional and only the subject's eyes are actually in focus. I would probably adopt the same technique when photographing a live model.

Thanks Edward. The nearest eye is a great portrait rule. I understand your reasons for exposing your shot like a human portrait.
