Congratulations with the anniversary of Surinames independency.
The picture has a good composition and beautiful natural colours.
I find the background very nice with the flag, the tower and the trees rising out in that blue sky.
Best regards, Paul

I was intrigued to see a group of soldiers with much European look and those characteristic hats in Suriname. I had never seen those yellow things in their shoulders in modern uniforms, much less in camouflage fabric. It's a fine documentary, with a nice touch of funny and well complemented by the WS. They look quite relaxed for an official ceremony.

muito interessante essa foto dos soldados e a contrução ao fundo, típica de festa da independência mesmo. Bonita amostra.
Parabéns e Abraço

A very interesting subject presented in a very beautiful composition my friend! The light on the soldiers and the half-blurred background are amazing. The workshop photo is a fine shot too.

Merhaba; Özgürlük için savaşılırda içilir de! Hak etmenin bir karşılığı olmalı... Güzel sunum ve güzel paylaşım...

A strong and interesting image in your well composed photo. well balanced elements in the compo. Well done!

Merhaba Ertuğrul, this photograph is festive, the army in great behaviour is ideal as make lines of prospect, one discovers in the WS all the team which drinks with the victory, and it is normal for a mathematician that the logic which never says 2 without 3 is respected, and that Ronald Runaldo Venetiaan is re-elected , arkadasça selamlar ......................
Merhaba Ertuğrul, cette photo est festive, l’armée en grande tenue est idéale comme lignez de perspective, l’on découvre dans le WS toute l’équipe qui boit à la victoire, et il est normal pour un mathématicien que la logique qui dit jamais 2 sans 3 soit respectée, et que Ronald Runaldo Venetiaan soit réélu

looks like i see a lone woman soldier in the group- that on the center with the yellow tassels facing the viewers. a show of love to one's country, these soldiers are by all means proud to be a Surinamese! a pleasant capture of such documentary/celebration.

Greetings to Suriname.
You have 33 and we have 46, so quite a young country. Sometimes, I wonder why national day is paraded with army and soldiers to show military side of affairs. Why not other aspects?

Hello Parbo, merhaba friend,
like your last photo, you created complete composition (with women musicians) and the church behind. Many details for my curiosity. Like usual perfect picture in nice colors. I like it so much.

Wonderful festive capture of these soliders at ease as they watch the wonderful ceremony.
Lovely pastel sky for the stately capital buildings to stand against.
Excellent clarity, sharpness and details to this festive occasion.

A partial picture that captures a scene by striking tones and smooth handling of light.
So there is no uniformity in the composition, I think the point of view it is right to list part of a commemorative moment in your country, which is important. Thank you my friend, for sharing.
