    It’s nice to see HDR mature.
    (a disclaimer for the knowledgeable: I’m aware it’s probably not a “full” multiple exposure hdr but derived from a single raw file instead, however nevertheless…)

    Interesting photo. Although here’s a pro-tip for the gunman: Never stick your barrel through the hole in the wall. It gives away your position.

    Maybe I’m jaded but as great a picture as this photo is, it just looks like a screenshot from Call of Duty or something. There’s no pathos.

      maybe you should learn the meaning of the following words, then –
      perspective
      context

        You mean it’s shot from the “perspective” of a photographer whose opportunistic “context” is a staged photo-op?

          Being in a war zone standing next to guys the government is trying desperately to kill is an interesting way of being opportunistic.

          “Just hold the gun a bit higher and let me throw some dust in the air for ambiance.. could you ignore the incoming bullets for a minute and help me frame this right?”

    You can tell they’re good guys with guns by the dramatic lighting.

    For me, this gave me immediate memories of the final scene of Near Dark:

    Which, if you haven’t seen it, is a spectacular little vampire movie, directed by Kathryn Bigelow, and starring Lance Hendrickson. Interestingly, virtually the entire cast was co-opted by James Cameron for ‘Terminator’ and ‘Aliens’.
