    There was a Civil War reenactment at Veterans Park today. I got there after the battle was over.:frown: I did manage to get a shot of a general.

    Thank you Dave, Fred and Gordon.

    Fred, maybe I'll see you there next year.
     
  6. So, who won? :wink::biggrin:

    This is a very good image. I think it would be even more powerful if the background had been darker, instead of the relatively light-colored tent, but you obviously had no control over that. Good job!

    Nice shot did you look at it in b&w or sepia would just seem to go with the era.

  11. You're getting the idea. Some tweaking and it'll be perfect. Just play around with it. You'll get the color just right. Still a good looking "period" shot.

    Sepia tone looks the best. Good shot.
