good take on daily life, the guys seem happy and relaxed off duty. The one in the center has a lovely warm smile.

I agree with Marina, that is a very warm and welcoming smile, and this shot looks superb in black and white. I think the design of the clothes helps a lot with this, highlighting the differences in tones. A very relaxed scene, especially for police officers, we don't see this very often. Looking forward to seeing more rom your series.
All the best

They seem quite happy to be photographed these police cadets whilst watching the match. Good daily life study that suits the conversion to black and white.

Tu as bien su saisir le moment ou la camaraderie et l'esprit de corps prend le dessus. Un semble apprécier, l'autre non.

Good morning Farhat,
Really happy to see you taken them on photo.
Nice moment collected, sometimes B&W make an unjust impression, but hopefully you will post fine shots as intened.

Hello Fabbs, nice moments you show these militaries together watching a soccer match, hope they're not corrupted, I like the patterns of their t-shirts I've a jacket with the same style, a brillant b&w version image

Great choice of black and white here since it adds more emphasis to the camouflage type pattern on the t ashirts. You caught those guys at the right moment turning to look at you too.

Well, some of them are cheering for their friends, three are busy posing for your photo! :-)) I like the idea, but maybe it's my tablet PC, but it looks a little dark. I'll have to look at this on my iMac again.

nice to see disciplined men wearing a beautiful smile!!
compliments on the b/w
ourania (37514) 2013-10-03 13:33
I like the tight framing and the depth of this composition that has managed to capture the vibrance of this group of people even through the monochrome and despite the blurriness of the background. The smiles and the good mood emerge effectively, the direct looks and different attitudes towards the lens are very intriguing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

hi, one of them is so friendly to give a pose for your camera. Nice presentation in monochrome. I like the moment captured. Apt light and depth. Good one. Eager to see those works of you in black & white. Tfs.

A lively photo of policemen in playful mood. The BW tone has been very suitable for the jerseys and the overall atmosphere.
Very well-timed shot with a beautiful composition.
mohammad_H (9800) 2013-10-03 23:41
I do not know, it's hard to comment on some pictures, thank you for your efforts to capture
A workplace, and everyday life
gildasjan (42726) 2013-10-04 0:19
C'était l'heure de la pose.Bel instantané de ces deux regards tournés vers le photographe.
eldancer1 (32906) 2013-10-04 7:48
Their shirts makes good subject for B&W. Good pov and good use of the dof with good contrast. Very well done, tfs.
ChrisJ (105681) 2013-10-04 8:21
Good choice of b&w with excellent sharpness and graphism. Nice tonal range and shallow dof with just the 3 fg guys in sharp focus. Effective framing and cropping and nice repetition of the camouflage patterns of their uniforms. 2 out of three ain't bad with the 2 looking at the camera. It actually improves the shot to have 1 looking away! Have a great weekend!

Beau contraste du N/B, de ce groupe avec un beau sourire et un regard sympat de l'un, l'autre plus sérieux, belle présentation
Romano46 (18472) 2013-10-04 11:54
una bella intuizione. La desaturazione e la conseguente trasformazione in bianco e nero dello scatto ha fatto si che esso acquistasse vitalità.
La composizione è molto buona e la messa a fuoco selettiva ha contrinuito a dare maggiore risalto agli elementi principali .
Ottimi il contrasto e la graduazione dei grigi.
Un eccellente lavoro che valorizza al meglio questo insolito ed originale soggetto.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Lot of muscle tissue at rest on the grass and those guys can't go unnoticed, dressed of such a strange costume and spirited expressions!
mirosu (15464) 2013-10-04 17:45
Good monochrome photo is sometimes much better than color one. I like monochrome photos because of better contrast in many situations.
You have posted an outstanding monochrome photo in excellent light, superb viewpoint. I like the smiling faces of these young men. Well done.
Wish you a nice weekend.
rychem (29089) 2013-10-05 8:52
I like collective portrait of the guys in camouflage clothing very much, they are so optimistically smiling, very nice scene , you have captured a very nice moment
Schnappilic (9690) 2013-10-05 11:51
Fine decisive moment in B/W. The result is great. Congratulations!
goodwill (4226) 2013-10-06 11:12
Their eyes are asking questions, isn't it?
Rightly composed and tightly cropped.
Well Done bro,
bayno (18344) 2013-10-22 11:10

kato (11630) 2013-11-14 3:33
You're capturing well this friendly scene by a good composition and excellent B/W tone/clarity, so oy's impressive to see a group of Police Recruits sitting and cheering their colleagues in soccer match. It's also impressive their smiles and uniform.
adramad (41240) 2014-08-25 8:28
A magnificent portrait of this group of guys, the choice of B & W, gives them a timeless air image.
High brightness and perfect sharpness.
Have a good start to the week.
All the best.
