Very subtle - I like how you brought out the idea that your sentinels are in a prison of sorts with all the bars and lines around them.

Wickedly underrated, Svetlana. I was quite taken with this one.

I really don't get the title on this one. What is/are the guards? The kid on the bike or the lids on the garbage cans? Why would you equate one to the other?

To be honest, I don't quite understand the significance/connection between the red on the boy and the red on the trash bins. You may want to focus on one or the other next time. Interesting photo, but I'm just a little confused I guess.
