This photo of soldiers was taken as they were waiting outside of the old city walls. I believe that they are actually Russian but have not been able to verify that fact. Should I be incorrect, I would greatly appreciate hearing.

The black uniforms against the grey background of the city wall make this a graphically attractive composition. There is also a nice symmetry that I like. All those four seated soldiers turn their heads toward the central part of the bench and the two at the ends seem to be laughing, while the two in the middle are smiling more hesitantly. The guy standing up breaks the symmery in a nice way.
It's a fine and spontaneous group portrait of soldiers looking less fearsome than they're supposed to be. The light and sharpness are perfect.

well seen, and well done! I like how they are amused about beeing models for you. To me it looks as if all five are brothers, there is a certain similarity, perhaps due to the uniforms they wear.

I can say yes, they are the Russian Marines. With a friendly visit to Montenegro, I think.
Amazing capture of so different faces and characters.

A very nice happy image, great capture of these soldiers, and so nice to see soldiers smiling. Very nice relaxed feel to your capture. TFS!

A great candid shot. Great expressions on all five of these soldiers. Excellent bright lighting, good contrasts and a fine POV shooting straight on. Well spotted and managed to preserve the spontaneity of the scene.
