Flickr a Day 56: ‘Night Shift’

Today’s selection is the second of three chosen from The United States Marine Corps photostream. Sgt. Anthony L. Ortiz shot self-titled “Night Shift” using Canon EOS 5D Mark II. Vitals: f/3.2, ISO 4000, 1/15 sec, 78mm. Depicted: “Lance Cpl. Hailey Carrol with Transportation Support Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 2, refuels a logistics vehicle system replacement after conducting a combat logistics patrol (CLP) to Forward Operating Base Shukvani, Helmand province, Afghanistan, Aug. 13, 2013”.

The image is a bit soft, because of the high ISO, which enhances the overall ambiance. The composition appeals several ways—light illuminating her face contrasting against the bokeh background and how the fuel pipe’s deft lines draw viewers’ eyes up to hers.
