    This pic jumped out at me as I was browsing your stream just now. I really like it. The reflective straps forming that X is great. Good reflection in the helmet, as well.

    Superb !!

    Absolutely brilliant! Again Paul, as with your other police photographs, you capture the essence of professional officers. I've got to agree with my fellow officer, powers . . the shot is "great." You may represent our profession with your artistic abilities, any day.

    lynneib, nothing robotic here . . it's called a "command presence," Extremely sharp, well maintained equipment, no nonsense . . . ready to protect you (sun glasses probably added to your perception).

    Hey Devers, if you think this BPD Officer represents Socialism, the next time you're in a jam, and need serious help, please call a meth addict. (The shame of it is we'll protect you in spite of your ignorance). Keep up the good work Paul!

    Just wanted to add , the brick backdrop is excellent, as their is nothing visually distracting . . . the sharp officer is 100% the focal point! Photocritic (PC), thanks for the link . . . interesting reading. I enjoyed it. Also, Boston Police are known to be very public relations oriented (not to be confused with the fact that they're as tough as they need to be when necessary)! Thanks.
