Before the battle by Jadekettu Before the battle by Jadekettu

Picture inspired by "Russian Soldiers Preparing for the Battle of Kursk, July 1943".


Here is the link: s2.thingpic.com/images/84/TYqz…

 The photo itself is fake. It's taken by Chirac Karapetyan Milstein in 2006-2007. It was apparently for contest.
Fake or not, I can't deny the fact this photo is well made and the emotions of the photography are stunning to me. I wanted to capture the same kind of emotions in this picture. 

 So I'm having little bit of personal problems... But I'm getting through them. 
Nothing else to say. Hope you like it ^^

Yeah, I did read that, and I wondered if I should still post the comment as it was. While it's not historically accurate, or real, it is still historically authentic to the Battle of Kursk (I think/hope!), and at least captures what the guys there must have been going through. I know the USSR had a bit of an athiest policy against religion for a while so that raised some question marks for me, but... I don't think anyone could blame them for relying on faith, given the circumstance.

But yeah, real or not, it's all still cool to me, so fuck it, ya' know? :D
