Haha, hello Mike, nostalgic, aren't you? ;-))
A great shot, very nice colour range and moment caught. Wonder where their gaze is directed, they seem to be bogged down by something to the right. Great moment, nice to see you post again. HOw's life?

Excellent composition with the tight framing of these sharp soldiers, their position just behind the yellow cross in between the tram tracks and the look on their faces. I didn't know people wore kilts in Canada. The dov is really good, can just make out the Starbucks sign behind. The wet road creates an interesting texture too.

Remembering last year ;-) I like how the colors pop out here when, I guess, it was a grey gloomy day.
It looks very "polished".

The quality really is the strongest part of this image, with its strong reds jumping out at us (which the background bokeh only adds to) and glistening appearance due to the wet ground. Excellent shot.
