Taken at the weekend with a big thanks to KevSB and the guys of the Pulteney's Regiment (13th Foot). I laid on the floor as they ran over me. This was before they got to me and taken with the Samyang 7.5mm full frame fisheye.

It's had a fair bit of photoshop work. First stretched and distorted to give a more pleasing shape, then I added a texture layer, and a new sky to give it a more dramatic feel and also added some motion blur to create a sense of action.

I've uploaded the original to show what this version came from.

Brilliant bit of work. Very sensitive to the subject and with added drama. A dynamic difference with a gentle touch.

Probably better to motion blur the sky as well as the land is blurred?

That's well worked from the original Pete.
Cole does have a point ref the sky but I reckon you need just a tad more blur on the soldiers too,just along the line of the back of them,keeping the fronts nice & clear.Just because you have lots of motion blur on their legs.
I like the choice of texture,just adds the finishing touch.
