Taken a month or so back during an American Civil War re-enactment at Norfolk Park in Sheffield...




Looks like one soldier got a bit near to the cannon here Smile He was actually loading the gun behind. It was a great day there with a number of period battles brought to life ranging from the Romans through to the middle ages and then WW2. I sepia toned this one to try to make it look like an old picture taken at the actual time of the real battle, not that they had cameras back then lol, or did they...?




Thanks for taking a look anyway, better large.

Sepia toning works well for this type of image Caleb, looks like one poor guy has had his head blown off Wink

Good exposure on the smoke of the canon..sepia tone makes it come alive in period.

Hmmm! I believe they had rudimentary cameras-- We, in south-central Pennsylvania have been told that the guns at Gettysburg were so intense that they could be heard from where we live-- -- it is only 35 miles-- Strange to see a British re-enactment of this war!

Cameras was very common during this period, hand colouring was even being used. thats 150 years before photoshop lol, cameras were mainly box types which required long exsposures so most pictures were of static objects or highly posed photos due to long exsposure times
