"On May 2nd 2008, Madrid was celebrating the bicentennial of Spain's independence gained over Napoleon's troops, thanks to the bravery of fearless insurgents once painted by Goya," wrote Michel Bricteux.
"Although I set out with the idea of covering the military parade, I decided to look backstage for the unexpected, more intimate detail. And there was this little boy, standing at the back of a platoon, dreaming about being part of an invincible army."
Michael captured this wonderful candid with a Nikon D3 - Nikkor 80-200 f/2:8 @ 80mm - f/3:5 - 1/200sec - 400 ISO - NEF format processed with Lightroom 2.0 Beta - Preset: Creative aged photo + Fill light + Highlight recovery + some vignetting.
