Players choice - What if
1 Attachment(s)
I saw the the Germain officers at a WW2 weekend but as there were a lot of people around never got a good shot. When i went to London a couple of weeks later the bad weather followed and i only got a few shots the background being one of them. So put the two together hope you like

It's a great photo. However, I see a problem with "perspective?" You've done a great job of layering the two photos but it looks layered. Either the two gentlemen are very tall and standing in the Thames river or they are standing on a boat. In the latter case, some of the boat should be showing. It actually looks like the gentlemen are standing in front of a backdrop or mural.

Now, since this is a "free-for-all" challenge with "no holds barred", my nit picking doesn't mean a thing!! LOL!

One last point or question--These two gentlemen are on opposite sides of the war, how come they haven't killed each other.

OK! I'm out of here before someone kills me!

Have a good weekend, everyone.

Lufftwaffe and SS were on the same sides of the same war.

If the Battle of Britain had gone the other way, this photo would have been closer than reality than most of us would have liked.

I think the difference in the lighting between the subjects and the Parliament is the main reason for them appearing to be in front of a mural.
