This National Geographic photo of Canadian soldiers is excellently composed, and has excellent color grading. The photo makes of use of thirds, having the human subjects in the center ninth of the photo, and the nose of the plane also taking up the center third. Additionally, the photo makes great use of asymmetry, with the wings of the plane breaking the horizon line. The photo has excellent shadows, with the midtones still being partially in shadow. The highlights are slightly warm to contrast with the mostly cold photo.
