The Gathering by immanuel The Gathering by immanuel
When I wash making this for some reason I thought of some old news reel that I had seen years ago of the white armies of the Russian civil war that lost to the reds in the end and the nightmare state of CCCP was born.
In the film solders wear kissing an icon that the priest was carrying. This image is not really of that put it has the same feeling of the end.

Thanks to all the models.

This is really good, except you talk about the Russians, when the people in the picture are clearly wearing German Outfitting from 1943 or so.

Those helmets look like M43s. :s

I don't have enough words to say how wonderful is the composition in this photograph. Everything is so balanced, even the general's arm fits perfectly to the whole composition. It looks like a visual symphony. Plus, working in a studio, with everything of the same color must be a little tricky, specially black, that must be a great light-drainer. You're a really good photographer. Hope to see more from you.

I really have a thing for this photo. It's really beautiful and there's that strange atmosphere to it...

I just have one question, just to be sure : are the two wearing the coats women ? I'm sorry if it's a stupid question but it's bugging me XD.

otherwise, nice job.
