The contrast between the delicate, pale fabric of the window curtain and the heavy furry hat and bright red uniform of the guard is striking. This is how you handle a cliche subject such as these guards have become. You add incongruous context that tells a story. This one speaks of the contrast between the world of peace and quiet (a darkened room) and a world of bright pageantry and military tradition (a bright and burly soldier).
