Photographer Notes:
The people portrayed here are not anti-power, simply rallying against a proposed new gas-fired plant in the midst of established neighbourhoods with an already stressed airshed. Any politics or statements are unintended.

Thank you, Kevin, for the POTD pick. As I wrote in the Photographer Notes above, the image was submitted strictly for its artistic merits (whatever they might be). I really felt strongly about this one. Thanks!

Well done Mike! I remember it's twin shot, and both convey the atmosphere and the concentration beautifully, it's great to win a potd on a shot you are emotionally attached to.

Their expressions are all that is needed to convey their message...a powerful presentation captured with very real emotions! Congratulations on an excellent win today!

This is a really great candid shot, Mike. It is a powerful statement and the concentration on the people's faces tell their own story. Huge congrats on a fantastic potd.
