The Smoke of Battle

By Paulbee
Taken at a recent Sealed Knot battle re-enactment at Blenheim Palace. I was trying out a new camera, the Panasonic Lumix FZ200 with the Leica Elmarit lens. I have found it complex to start with but I am beginning to get to grips with it.

Decent record of the event. The pure white sky is a pity and causes some loss of detail in places. You would have been better trying to find a position where you did not have to include the sky. Possibly zoom in closer and show some faces.

Thanks Netta and Paul for your comments. Yes Netta I am [pleased with the camera so far, it is taking me some time to get my head round all its features. But I hope to become familiar with it before our holiday in Canada.
I agree with you Paul about the white sky in the pic. Just bought a new size polarising filter this last week to try and deal with a similar situation. I n PS I tried to tint the sky but it didn't look right so kept it as it was.

Thanks for your helpful crit, regards Paul.
