A good juxtaposition and an interesting range of expressions on the pcs' faces. I'm sure one of them is trying not to laugh out loud!
B&w is perfect - no distraction needed.

Varied facial expressions but a grim determination in the body language of the PCs, standing tall and shoulder to shoulder, heads held high and eyes focussed in the dfistance. Captured the moment very well Tony; has to be b/w, as woolybill says no distraction.

Peaceful at that moment Tony, reminder of the 60's/70's reportage.

A stunning piece of reportage photograph, "I don't know why he looks so miserable, think of all the blooming overtime we were paying him".....

A historical document in a way - they've started to worry about their pensions now.

Not how it works nowadays, Nathan. They're probably working their day off at no recompense having been cancelled 28days previously!!

Excellent angle you've got there, Tony, some great expressions.

Good reportage.

Excellent reportage photography, Tony. Takes me back to my time in the force and a few local disputes in Southampton involving the dockers... B&W is the only version for this scene.

Love shots like this when the photographer goes head on and mixes with the hustle and bustle of the crowds at demonstrations like this - no chance of a tripod mounded shot in the case!! The choice of mono works a real treat and has captured that thin blue line superbly. Smashing.
