A complete change of direction for me this evening, and a change in which any thoughts you may have on would be most welcome.
The image was taken at the Swindon & Cricklade Railway Wartime Weekend, and shows a member of the re-enactment group portrying the American 101st Airborne Division, entrenched in battle.
I have tried to capture a look of despair and bewilderment at the horror he has seen on the battle field, etched on the face of the actor, who seemed to be really into his role!
I have converted this into mono and then toned with a sepia tint, and added a little grain to give a feeling of age.
As I have mentioned your thoughts are most welcome as always.
Hope you are well, and thank you for taking the time to look.
