Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-21
Suggester says, "I love what this image stands for, ultimately portraying a serviceman at work - but including 'man's best friend' in the frame has given this a touching softer feel. "

Oh my god, this looks exactly like my friend's husband. He's deployed along with my husband to the Helmand province, I had to take a closer look to make sure it wasn't him. Your photographs are stunning!

Good Rocky! It must be weird having so many cameras in the Operational Area. We weren't allowed to have them! But that was a different world!

I always feel warm and fuzzy when I see pictures of soldiers and animals. :) Dogs are very good for depression and overall mental health. Cats are good for blood pressure and cardiovascular health. I can't imagine not having animals around me.

This is a very good picture! Well done! :clap:

God bless our troops!

This makes me feel very happy. Dogs are truly unique in the fact that they can make you feel amazing. Whenever you're down, or lonely, they're there for you. May they each live happy lives. :3

Thank you so much for this wonderful picture. It really captures the human side of our military which many civilians (and even officers) seem to forget.

Also thank you for your service. I hope to one day serve beside you.

Those men fight for so much. It's sad to think that there are people who have the nerve to say one bad word about these true heroes. God bless American troops, guardians of One Nation under God.

The EXIF data is right there on the side bar, which means this guy took the photo - not screenshotted it. And, as others have mentioned, it's in the photojournalism gallery, which is it's own unique art form. And again, as other people have mentioned, if you disagree with something being featured, please take it up with the moderator who featured it, not the artist.

It is Photojournalism depicting a "behind military scene" telling us a news story and showing an intimate moment between a man and his dog in a very particular moment. It is a great image of true life that we don't see often. And this image deserve all the attention it's getting.
This photographer and his photography has nothing to do with your own experience about your screen shots with very complex details. If you have the feeling it is not fair, please follow this : FAQ #873: What do I do when I disapprove of a Daily Deviation feature?

:iconmac1997:

Hmm... I already understand this.... And to tell you the least the first I saw the image I thought it showed TRUE SPIRIT AND COMPASSION AMONG SOLDIERS... So I DO think the artist deserves some kind of Special Credit for trying to deliver this feeling to us.... And I TRY to do the SAME....

I understand the COMPLETE Emotionality of the image.. But I have screenshots on DA as well, to describe my feelings and imagination.... With VERY COMPLEX DETAILS.... So I was accused once for my Beautiful Screen Shots. And that someone said to me Deviant art is an Art Site, not an image hosting site... It made me go crazy..... So I didn't think this was fair when I saw this image.... I hope you understand me :thanks:.............. And I am only insensitive to Dramatic things... But NOT Beautiful, and Emotional things.......
