January 2008, US soldiers load Iraqi civilians wounded in an IED attack onto a waiting MEDEVAC helicopter.

D40x
AF-S 18-70mm 1:3.5-4.5G
56mm
f 5.6
1/500

Shot JPEG, changes to color and contrast done in Microsoft Office Picture Manager (I often wish I had real photo software)

I shoot nearly every day, but so much is work related and I can not post it here.

This is one of my favorite pictures I've taken this trip.

The helicopters were kicking up loads of dust and I think I closed my eyes a few times trying to get this, eventually I just held the shutter down in continuous and got this one (the other 6 or 7 had a dust cloud obscuring the soldiers).

This is my first photo post, so try not to be too harsh on me.

Saying that, I am interested in any pointers or criticism in developing a photojournalism style, I don't have post processing software or a decent computer with me in Iraq, I do have my D40x, an 18-70, a 70-300 VR, a 50mm 1.8, a SB-600.

Thank you in advance,

Chris
