halberds a tool of defence       ©2015 forkcandles

Post-Processing: cropped resized       Extra Info: The Queen's Body Guard of the Yeomen of the Guard are a bodyguard of the British Monarch. The oldest British military corps still in existence, it was created by Henry VII in 1485 at the Battle of Bosworth. As a token of this venerability, the Yeomen still wear red and gold uniforms of Tudor style. There are 60 Yeomen of the Guard (plus 6 Officers), drawn from retired members of the British Army, Royal Marines and Royal Air Force, but traditionally not the Royal Navy. This ban on Royal Navy Personnel was lifted in 2011 and 2 Sailors joined the ranks of the Yeomen of the Guard. They must have served for 22 years and hold the Good Conduct Medal
They are sometimes mistaken for being Beefeaters or Yeoman of the Tower of London
Their only item of defence or attack is the 8ft halberd with a sharp point

    I like the decision to use a portrait crop. The exposure and saturation result in a pleasing image, that although quite colorful, does not seem overdone. However, my eye is drawn much more to the Yeomen of the Guard, than their halberds(tools), so doesn't do the best job of meeting the challenge requirement.

    Must have been a spectacular parade! I find the red somewhat overwhelming - would crop some off the bottom. Shooting from slightly to the right would move the blue halberd away from the man's head.
