[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken on the Governor's Birthday parade in Kota Kinabalu.
This comando couldn't keep a straight face when he spotted my grey lens trained on him. He ended up sneaking a smile.

God bless our troops !

Hello James.
A very well captured shot of these commandos with good focus on the FG one while the BG gives beauitful shallow depth,nice vivid colors.
Best wishes

Bonjour James ,
A beautiful portrait full of color and detail, it is unfortunate that the soldier's helmet is cut up. The focus is excellent. It's a great photo reporter

I like the composition and the depth of field that was used. You must have been very close to your subject to that background blur at f/9. A good candid photo timed perfectly.

Hi James...nice shot...interesting to have a smile and the camo gear in the same person.....


Nice portrait... very good use of colour here... nicely composed with a tight two shot.
