This is my photo from the streets of Colombo. I like to take pictures of the policemen of the world.
And I'd like to say this is very unusual uniform with the white sleeves as the separate elements of his jacket.

this is a classic scene, captured in a most spontaneous way that adds to it vividness and interest. An effective portrait in action, we get a lot of information about the traffic policeman, his attitude, uniform and job. I like very much how he is surrounded by colours, lines, buses, pedestrians, movement. Seeing the lady among the buses and the little boy paying attention to the photographer rather than the policeman, it's clear his job is very demanding:) Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Good focus on the policeman. And motion blur give good idea of action around and his moving hand. Yes that uniform is special. Maybe the white sleeves are related to his traffic guiding duties, to make them show more clearly.

We think alike, I also have a few pictures of policemen...but none as 'chique' as this one. :) Certainly a different style of uniform, but in a country so full of color, he needs to stand out in one way or another to be noticed.
A great shot, catching his regard directly towards your camera, as well as the young man in the foreground.The depth of field is perfect to create layers of interest from front to back in this action filled scene. An every day moment that shows us the vibrant nature of the city and its transportation. Clear, well defined, and smartly taken my friend. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

A very well picture with nice colours and excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
