Default Remembering fallen comrades

I attended the Veterans Day ceremony here in HB yesterday, where hundreds gathered to honor them. This gentleman seemed to be lost in a distant and painful memory when all the Vets were asked to stand and be recognized. I applied some Topaz Adjust to the cropped shot. What do you think?

Very good capture of the moment at hand. A shot that should be in the local newspaper

You can see him thinking back to sad times in that picture. The viewer may not know what he is remembering but they can easily tell it is of a sad time from his life. Very moving shot.

I think it's a terrific shot, but the Topaz Adjust hasn't done you any favors. The shot looks a bit too HDR for my taste. This kind of shot gets its power from its lack of artifice, and the over-processing undermines its genuineness to my way of thinking. FWIW

FWIW, I think I agree with tclune. Post with a tad less Topaz-ing?
