Fantastic Portrait of a Hero

Wow…. the People magazine cover featuring Captain Chelsey Sullenberger is one of the best portraits that I have seen recently in a common publication. The lighting is beautiful and spot-on, the baby (youngest survivor of Flight 1549) is angelic and his pose perfect, the red blanket is an integral piece of supporting color, Capt. Sullenberger looks every bit as relaxed and humble as he is in person, and the Madonna-esque theme of the image is perfect for the story.

I couldn’t stop looking at this image when I received my weekly People in the mail. Find a copy yourself and you’ll understand what I’m talking about.

    I saw this cover in the store. It made me want to cry. He does seem to be a very humble man.
