    Hard to say that it is a great shot, given the reason of the picture... However, great framing, and timing. You got it just before they stepped in front of the three at attention. The clarity and focus is outstanding. Great job!

    A photograph like this really captures an emotion and a reality...The uniforms we wear are also to pay tribute to our fallen brothers and sisters who gave thier lives for our country. Thank you for helping everyone to remember this if only for a minute while viewing this photograph.
