My entry to the Gears of War 3 contest.
I wanted to capture a raw moment in the heat of battle that captured both the intensity of the battles but also the deep comradery of the soldiers that leads them to fight to the bitter end.
Here Marcus risks all to rescue Jace, who continues to fight despite being down. Marcus has already emptied rounds in to the enemy as indicated by the spent shell casings on the ground. I wanted to capture that moment just as Marcus has moved the Lancer to his other hand to grab Jace's free arm to drag him to safety.
