I can't really add anything technical, other than say I like both the shots and the subject (I found your reportages a very interesting read).

A graphic expletive work as anyone how remembered with the Chernobyl reactor blew its hat off,a reminder to the country with the technology to be aware,yes technology has gotten better but it was a human error that started it off TFS

Very impressive !

But I must say I'm not fan of this added vignetting. This is a fashion with reporters but to me like any fashion, this may fade out and make the images irrelevant in the future (which is infortunate since the pitures are good photos by themselves)

Remarkable images - truly wonderfully done. The subject is tragic but the photography is top notch.

In late 1862 Mathew Brady displayed images from the fields of Antietam,upon viewing them a reporter wrote ,something to the effect "there are times in ones life that events occur that strains
the heart to the very point of breaking,but due to the remorsless nature of life won't allow it to do so"
my heart weeps

These are very difficult to look at for someone like myself that grew up less than 100km away from these scenes, in Kyiv.

I've always wanted to make a photo trip there myself - every image I see from other photographers is heart-breaking. Technically, these are beautiful and your composition is top-notch. Thank you for posting!
