Rear Guard

By Jacobite
I didn't want the normal tourist shot of this Trooper so I opted for a shot from the rear whilst the girls posed for their friends shooting from the front.

Nicely shot, & well done in pursuing something different.

I think I'd have left it in colour though, or at least colour-popped the guard, to show of that vibrant red jacket.

Moira - A rare moment of inspiration there!

Ant - Thanks very much.

Davey - I've seen, and taken, too many pictures that are very 'touristy' and am pleased how this worked out.
As for colour, I hear what you're saying but I'm getting a bit of a mono freak at the minute Smile
