I like how the background looks slightly unimportant yet acts as a primary focal point.

Wonderful composition. Was there any digital work done to give it that "almost-surreal" quality?

That rifle in photo could be M39 EMR or Mk 14 EBR. I can't tell for sure.

Very nice photo.

Nice m14, man must have worked real hard to qualify for that :) Love their boots, wish I could buy them back here at home!

You talking about the man on the left?

(sorry I have zero military background)

What would one have to do to gain access to a "better gun"?

The M14 (yes the guy on the left) is qualified as a Marksmen weapon, meaning he would have had to complete a certain type of sniper related training to use it. And you would probably have to qualify as a marksmen to get it (so you have to be able to hit a target at 10o yards or something like that, consistently) or go to sniper school, which is (btw) one of the hardest schools in the military.

Interesting.... thanks for the reply.

Curious, are you in service? If not, what is that opinion about sniper school being one of the most difficult based on?
