    Nice job Marc! The figure's great and the sandbags look spot on.

    My only criticism is that I find the crate in the foreground a bit of a distraction, it draws my eye away from the focus of the vignette (i.e. the figure itself). Others may or may not agree.

    Steve,
    I think when i look at the pictures you are absolutely right. But in real it isn't so prominent. I believe the angle and the bias of the camera is fooling us.
    If others find it so, i strip that crate.

    He's a real beauty Marc. Great subject and I have always been fond of the Horizon blue (isn't that what it was called?) uniforms. I wish I could achieve that degree of subtle blending with the blue garments. Got a lot of blue figures in my stash to practice on. :)
