looking at this I took mine at the same moment to your left sarah, I know you said you wanted to go to victory show, but have you tried Kelmarsh Festival of history, you may like that as it covers lots of periods, Its the main show in the uk, http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/daysout/events/history-live-kelmarsh-20-jul/
Thanks Sarah, I tried it in black and white, not sure if its me but sometime making everything black and white doe not always work, Full colour looked good also. so as a compromise I merged both to try and achieve a gritty feel but retain the colour that was so important in this period.
nearly impossible to get the best moment even in burst mode, as its 1 fraction of a second when its like this, glad you got some good shots sarah, I sat next to this canon during the battle when it went off, with ear protectors in and outside the danger cone obviously, It knocked me back against the tree the shockwave was so strong. Its not used a lot due to the cost of firing and im told unlike the normal 3LB canons used a shotgun licence is not enough for this 6lb gun and lots of permits needed, 37 quid just gone up in smoke paid btw.
Stunning Image, I find it strange how we look back at this wonderful scene with alls its drama and paint a wonderful picture of the past, The reality is that it was dirty, Smelly and Noisy Compared to the modern Equivelent, But Maybee thats what attacts us to it. Thankyou for sharing
