With the Marines… by ~goldenhide on deviantART

Artist’s Comments
My first desaturating attempt. I like the way it turned out. Again it looks like a frame from a movie, but this one obviously with an adjusted camera and lens. I like the way they colors came out the most. They have a Kodachrome look to them.

This time we were dressed as Marines of the 3rd Marine Division during Operation Cartwheel specifically Bougainville. Sadly, southern California lacks jungle so it really wasn’t like Bougainville at all… More of a dead grass Guadalcanal.
