They're apparently "putting on a brave face"?

A brave and jocular face.

If you spent your career photographing crime scenes, don't you think you'd get jadded, too?

Thier carrer is spent in other people's misery. Do you think you could cut them a break? Maybe, at least for the milisecond it took to take this photograph?

Come now.

Those first two comments don't seem a little pointed to you? ...A bit critical of their smiling in the face of a tragedy?

Short flippiant comments like this always come off to me as not very positive or neutral ...like the first two words of this post.

"A bit critical of their smiling in the face of a tragedy?"

quite honestly, no. davin's comment didn't seem flippant or critical to me, and my response wasn't meant to be critical of them either.

the entire point of the photograph is that these guys - for whatever reason - are having a moment of brevity in the face of tragedy. whether it's because they are "jaded" or not, i have no idea. i'd be more inclined to say they are (as davin said) "putting on a brave face". in any case, i certainly don't begrudge them that.
