    Given the nature and the narrative of this scene, regardless of the fact it's only a training mission, we still fully understand the scale and the importance of what is happening here. It looks very real and by being positioned flat out on the ground, so close up to the soldiers you have added a deeper and more meaningful dimension of danger and potential violence that is often portrayed in war photographs. The whole story of war is EPIC - Well done!
