Behind The Lines

By davidhu
Another upload from our recent WW1 battlefield tour. We were lucky enough to come across this group of WW1 re-enacters who had set up camp a couple of miles from Ypres. They were happy enough to let us wander round and take a few pics. Here's one of the infantrymen, looking suitably serious (he told me that they weren't allowed to smile !).

Thanks for looking

Very well done Dave. The toning and presentation are spot on and give a vintage feel to the image.

Clever use of toning and borderwork Dave, to give it that aged feel. What an extraordinarily long neck!

First class work Dave. The toning and presentation are right on the mark.
DD is right - what a long neck he has.

Classic shot! You could have fooled me if you had said it was a genuine period shot.
Thanks for the nice comment on my dog pic.
