A U.S. Army Soldier assigned to the 3rd Infantry Regiment, "The Old Guard", stands at the ceremonial at-ease
position on Nov. 11, 2013 in the Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Va.  The Soldiers were preparing
to render a salute when President Barack Obama's motorcade drove by.  


Okay, so...not the greatest caption, but it's personal work and I'm about to crash.  It's been a long
and interesting day.  Got to chat with fellow vets and give them some entertainment each time the
 Howitzer went off.  Even got to shake hands with a couple of Medal of Honor recipients (after throwing
them off that I was a female combat vet, gotta keep those old men on their toes). 

Also, thank you SoldiersWolf for the correction on ceremonial positions!

There is actually a lot I really like about this photo. First I love the way the face doesn't how, normally this would annoy me as I want to "know" this person; but the general respect I find towards such person gives the anonymity an interesting feel.

I really like the focus as well as the depth of field. The clean and clear focus on the sole object is fantastic. Additionally the color and bokeh in the background is beautiful.

The main thing I noticed that I wasn't completely fond of was even though you didn't capture the top/head, I would like to see more of the uniform, perhaps if you'd done portrait style or even just further back, capturing from the shoulders down giving a fuller view of the body to the person.

Regardless; this is a beautiful shot and like I said before there is so much I love about it. Great job
