I realise this is faaarrrr from perfect but distracting backgrounds, rain (all day!), fiddetgy and often rude spectators, lots of misfires, heavy lens ... blah... Grin

This is from a Napoleonic reenactment at Woollaton Hall at the weekend, really good despite the rain and probably one of the best organised I've seen to date.

Considering all the problems (excuses, excuses!), this is excellent. A couple of guys from camera club said they were going there, they would be well pleased with one as good as this Wink

Excellent image, It needs no excuses but stands on its own merits very well indeed. Love the colour, clarity and atmosphere. Intriguing last comment by Gwynn Grin

This is the sort of image I was wanting to create. I realise that I had too small a focal length and too far away for graet clarity. I will expect miracles.

Great shot andinspirational for me.

Nice work.

Regards.

Gavin
