Civil War Re-enactment, Clinton Georgia, 15 pics!!

Discussion in 'Miscellany' started by TomP, May 8, 2007.

  1. These pics are from the Civil War Days in Clinton Georgia. Each Year they re-enact the battle of Sunshine Church, a confederate victory over Gen. Sherman's army as it marched to Savannah Georgia, and the Battle of Griswoldville, A Northern victory, over the home guard of old men and children defending the Confederate gun works. Everything is accurate.

    The pics were taken mostly with a 200/400 MM. It seems that every chance I have a chance to get out with this lens the sun fails me. I was shooting from the edge of the battlefield, in deep grass, and think the grass, created a nice effect in some shots. After I save for web in PS, the pics seem to look flat. Anyone have a away around this?
