BelePhotography: Most comments in here tell me only one thing. Pixelpeepers and gearheads will never grasp the art of photography. I find it a brilliant capture symbolizing in more than one way the struggle large parts of the arabic society is still going through...

Reg Natarajan: I'm surprised we're not hearing from more gearheads worried about what lens he used and whether he shot using HDR. Whether you like the shot or not (and I do), I think everyone should take a second to realize that this photo would be no more powerful if you could see better what what was in the shadows, or if each hair on his head was individually discernible, or if the RAW image had more detail. Photography is only minimally about gear.

Brilliant photo, symbolic of a brilliant movement. May our brothers and sisters in Yemen soon be free.

Excellent point. Although I believe discussing gear can be entertaining, at the end of the day, the final image is what is important.
