    For any wondering this is purely provincial humour, though technically under federal jurisdiction.

I'd post a witty response but I can't cash in on the opportunity since I haven't been, like many federal employees (not that I could be called one), able to get things in cheque yet...

    Jade: Given your voting on my open entry I figured you must have been involved in that.

    I think too much is unclear here.

    I think you've captured the movement of the marching band really well, but the spectators distract.

    Good subject. I would change the composition to remove the heads in the foreground and get in the tops of the buildings which would also give you more of a rule of thirds.

    You were shooting at 457mm but sadly this still feels quite far away from the main subject, and I'm not a fan of the three heads in the foreground. It's an interesting subject, and I wonder if picking out a small group rather than the whole band would have been beneficial?

    Not sure the motion blur adds much to this scene except fuzziness. A close-up view, e.g. drummers in sharp focus except for flailing drumsticks, might be more effective.

    I love the feet of the marching men! The 3 heads in the foreground are very distracting.

    I would maybe be o.k. with the marching band blurred, their legs in particular have a pleasing effect, but with the heads in the foreground OOF and the background blurred, nothing works here for me. I think I would have framed the bottom of the image just below the band.

    I think a tighter crop of just the men marching would’ve enhanced this composition a lot more, the three men in the foreground are very distracting. I do like the motion that you have achieved though.
