CENTURIAN

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Thanks for your comments & clicks on yesterday's image LOOK BACK - very much appreciated.

We have had torrential rain and thunder storms tonight, it's so close and humid, hope it's ok where you are.

Here is an image that I've been working on this week taken last Sunday at the Fortress Wales Event, there was no way to get a clear shot of this Roman as there were people and tents in the background, I'm quite pleased with the way it's turned out - hope you like it !

BEST VIEWED AT F11 (Full Screen)

Have a great weekend.

Chris

Marvellous image, Chris: You mention tents and folk in the b/g so I assume that a fair bit of processing was involved in creating this result, but what a result.

Been a fan of Roman hiostory I might be biased but this is great even if I weren't a fan. Can see why it has such high votes.

Good work Chris.
