It’s the combination of the stark person and the blurred person, it’s the contrast between them and they complement each other perfectly!

You did a great job on this.  (FYI: You know the photo is not actually from WWII, right?  It is a posed photo.)

It's still a fantastic picture (I did a version of it too).  But it was taken in 2007 for a photography contest.
