Superb and delightful candid portrait Sarah. Wonderful expression, detail and fabric textures. Love the soft, rich, warm light and the dof.

What an adorable child.
I do find it a bit chilling that a child is playing war games, though.
The innocence of that face should never see war.

Just to say that I also agree with Joline and Pamela about children never having to witness war! There were battles re-enacted at this event but none of the children took part in these. I do think however that living history events are important, especially to the younger generation, a great way for them to learn about the mistakes our forefathers made so that may never be repeated! I also learnt so much yesterday - especially at the WWII Village/exhibition, authentic in every detail and the participants so passionate about passing on their knowledge, thank you - a superb event that I can't wait to return to next year!

What a cracking shot. His eyes are fantastic and he looks as if he is having a super time. On a technical note if he is a Confederate, why is he wearing a Union (blue) hat? The jacket looks perhaps more blue than grey too.
