Mono is just right for this shot - they look to exhausted to have any colour left.

The Monochrome treatment works very well with this shot. It gives a good idea of the grit and grime these guys endure through training. A Great shot and deserves a lot more attention that it has got.

excellent piece of PJ here. They look soaked and tired. I have wondered how they find the endurance to keep going.
