I've seen this somewhere before on my travels...

Athens,Greece? Tomb of the Unknown Soldier or something like that? Syntagma Square.

I concur with Ken. Whatever the uniform designer was intending, it was NOT intimidation. Maybe a fit-of-giggles force? Wonderful image, congrats on the ribbon.

Very nicely done! Their dedication and seriousness, shines through in this image. The symmetry in this image is amazing. You can tell that untold hours of work go into their effort.

Congratulations to you, and them, for a job very well done.

I could get past the skirts, but those shoes just remove any shred of intimidation those guys ever presented. ;-) Terrific photo though - congrats!

Your not wrong - not smiling while wearing those shoes!!

All these foreign uniforms look Greek to me :-)

Oh how wonderful. A couple of inches to the right and you would have had a perfectly symmetrical image. Love the muted colors, and the surprise of the red. Front page.
