Russian Bear on the prowl - Русский медведь на охоте
WW II Soviet IS-2 Heavy tank in the field of battle.
Many thanks to Peer.Gynt for graciously allowing me to use his photo of this IS-2 Soviet Heavy tank to create this composite image. Original photo by Peer.Gynt found
here. See Peer.Gynt's detailed information about this tank.
I also want to credit to rikdom for use of the tank commander contained in his fine photo - found here - which I used without actually obtaining his permission first. Hope you don't mind, rikdom.
Likewise I wish to give proper credit to Bernt Rostad for having taken the picture of the background - his picture entitled; On the Siberian steppe. I must apologize to Mr. Rostad for having used his photo without first having received his permission. Mr. Rostad's photo can be viewed here. Belatedly, I am writing to Mr. Rostad informing him that I used his picture in my composite artwork and am asking for his generosity in allowing me to continue using his picture in my image.
