Hello people!
Ok, something new today. I am leaving the Costa Del Sol for a while and moving on to my new series that I took just over a week ago. "During The War 3" taken at the Pickering 1940's war weekend. This is the third time I have done one of these series, so I hope you are not going to get boredTongue Quite a few to comeWink
I will be interested to know what you think to the processing. This is the first time I haven't used my faithful "Nero" software on these "wartime" shots, this is processed in PS2 and the first time I have used the canon for this event too.

Like the process and use of DOF to just leave the man slightly defocused Diane.

One of these days I'm going to see one of my relatives in these pictures, they live all around (and in) Pickering!! Processing and composition spot on Diane.

I think your processing is spot-on, Diane. It looks more and more desaturated the further back into the picture you go but in such a subtle gradient.

The look of the image fits the era so well!
