Victory in Japan Day
This photo is one of those 'classic american icons', meaning lots of people associate it with america and the past. The piece is fairly sound in it's composition, because it captures three different grounds with a fair amount of clarity and descriptiveness of Times Square, but the head on view of the figures is a bit harsh. I actually kind of prefer the Victor Jorgenson version of this image, because the composition is more dynamic, but the sailor in the dark uniform is obscured by the kissing figures, giving them a weird footed appendage.
