This is wonderful. It's a case of the photographer's eye seeing the relationship. The man leaning forward to extend a hand (good to have his face in profile), the exhausted soldier moving forward. Of course it's an illusion, but images work when the imagination weaves a story.
I know that bench well, I remember photographing the shadow.

This must have been a labour of love Nathan. Well captured.

The man appears to be talking to the soldiers, Nathan - another illusion, of course, but an illusion that demands our attention. He is clearly giving room to the other occupants of the bench.
Beautifully timed; the tight crop adds intensity.

The illusion (is it that?) of him having a conversation with the soldiers is magical, Nathan. An excellent spot and the b&w is so very complementary to the subject.

I think it might be difficult to relax here whilst remembering those who have lost their lives or maybe it should remind us to live for today.

The soldier on the left, he's looking down at the plastic tray and shouting to his mates "Guys, this got a whole lot better, there's a Mcdonalds here!"

Superb image,

Love every aspect
