The trouble with photographing a parade from the front is that you have to keep up with them while marching backwards Smile
Eventually they reached the front of the church; the pipers peeled off into the car park and the standard bearers took their places before the lych gate. Here the standard bearer of the local Army Cadets faces the RSM while members of the community look on.
This is a severe crop from the centre of the frame. As with yesterday's image there is also telephoto compression involved, less from the lens than from the effect of the crop: front to back is about 22 metres/25 yards.

A remarkable observation and highly accurate.
I would have said it was a naturally serious moment.

Roll on today week Smile

A very good documentary shot, the crop just right to include the nearer figures either side, and interestingly showing the amount of foreshortening taking place even at 85mm.

A great community capture, Bill, complete with the copper towards the rear of the gathering. I like the fact that you have the cadets on the right and a couple of old soldiers just in shot opposite them on the left.

I would think as an army cadet Bill,if you can get over your fear of the RSM,
you will fear NO man after that.But I bet these RSM's still live in fear of their Missus !!
A good bit of old fashioned journalism here.

Terrific crowd shot. But why does the person wearing a bright, featureless coat always stand to the front in the middle? Totally thoughtless. Wink

Excellent composition and capture, Bill, and like the way the crowd behind appear all bunched up due to the foreshortening the lens has produced Smile

The downturned mouths are part of the not knowing what's about to happen, a serious event and some strange things happening for so many in the crowd. What's going to happen next. I'm not sure that the lady in the white coat thought she was thoughtless by wearing what she did, it was a local event and not a photographic event no matter how appealing for the camera.
I think you'll find that if you pull up and crop a small section from this that it'll appear even more foreshortened. I can't remember the rule involved Bill.

The RSM has got a jaw and chin befitting the rank.

Superb capture, Bill Smile
