|I'm gonna start posting these as "Posed WWII Thompson pics". You guys try to find "action" photos. There were only a few photographers who were snapping pictures while the bullets were flying. The only thing you seem to care about is that they are "posed"|
You post all you can find. I like 'em. Posed or not, it's the man, moment and machine thing I like to see. Hey, "Man, Moment and Machine", maybe I could sell that idea to the History Channel for a show!

This picture is also a good demonstration of the effect of depth of field in photography. The photographer probably had sufficient light that he could have used a higher number F-stop, produced greater depth of field, and captured all the troops in focus. However, maybe he sought the effect he produced with this shot.
