Its a very good PJ shot. Im amazed at the casual and unprofessional way they handle their guns, - but shouldnt be surprised I suppose.

The only suggestion I would have for presentation is to use the vertical post as a reference to straighten ( though I know the background may not actually be too straight, it looks better), and lift the shadows to brightenn the uniforms as in the mod.

Hello, Caisii. I like the juxtaposition of the guns and uniforms, with the fun and chat. They look as if they are enjoying a joke. I agree with Willie about straightening the background lines and lightening the uniforms, but I also feel that the man on the left spoils the composition for me. For a start, he looks as if he has a gun planted on top of his head and it's also poking him in the nose, very uncomfortable. So I have done a modification where I used Perspective Correction to straighten the lines, then adjusted shadows and brightened the image, and cropped the man from the left, then added a touch of sharpening.
