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.

great feel & capture
You have captured the feeling superbly well. Just finished Band of Brothers pretty harrowing time.
I really like this image. Just had to have a little play. Great stuff.
Great image Phil, nice processing
Superb capture indeed.
Thank you for the mod Justin, you have managed to achieve the look I was trying to get.
Thank you for the comments everybody.
Well seen and captured Phil.
Like the mod also.
He is certainly acting out the part Phil - you have caught it well.
I think you could reduce the brightness of the area next to his face - perhaps a little less toning too - but not go B&W.
Clever manipulation Phil. Suits the image well.
Looks to me that you achieved what you set out to do, Phil. A very touching portrait which really does convey a feeling of despair.
excellent capture, prefer the tones of the mod.lsley
Excellent Phil. Your p/f is a joy to look at. Ron.
Excellent image. I'm a fan of the 101st Airborne, especially Easy Company. What they had to endure during the Battle of the Bulge (and others) was just unimaginable.
absolutely brilliant .
