54/365 | Troopers Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima

    Prev Next

    Today's photo pays homage to a photo taken by Joe Rosenthal entitled Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima. The original photograph was taken on February 23, 1945.

    Shortly after Rosenthal's photo was taken, it became one of the most significant and most recognizable images of the war. In fact, it has been said that this image is the most reproduced image of all time.

    I hope I have done it some justice.


    This photo is the first of many images to come in my mini series Cloned Photos.

      Thank you! I really enjoyed creating this one. I'm going to try to remember to show more set up shots like this, because I know I've found it helpful when looking at other's works.

      I like photo you did. But that is the wrong symbol it should be this
      Just a little detail. I give this photo 9.9 out of 10. Sorry for being geek.

      Thank you Roser. This is by far one of my favourites so far. It took a lot of effort, but the end result is fantastic. Thanks for the support!

      Works perfectly....love the R2 and 3PO parts scattered all over the place....

      Thank you. Sometimes it is the little details (that can go unnoticed at first) that make the photo. In this case, it is R2 and 3PO. They really do make this shot for me.

      hello sir, i tried this but i get scan lines. what am i doing wrong? thanks in adv.

    16. egerbver 26 months ago | reply

      hmmm....scan lines? I assume the scan lines are showing up on your computer monitor? Try adjusting your DoF to a shallower one, so that it is not focused on the screen...hopefully that works...
