Candid of guard on Supreme Court steps that made me smile. Wanted to call this "Sentinel and His Adversary" to make the implied relationship between the guard and sign more obvious. As bad as my scores have been it's probably better to stay within the challenge rules.

This did better than expected. Thanks for all the kind comments and high scores!

Excellent work. The counterbalance of the sign to the guard adds immeasurably to the composition. Well seen!
