Good composition and done under very contrasty light.
Shooting these images I kept thinking of being a journalist in a war zone. A heady experience without getting hot. Infant, this one got second place under the category of Journalism at my photo club. The judge like the use of sepia.
John, as always, I greatly appreciate your comments.
I’ve been to re-enactments and they’re great fun and you often meet up with some interesting characters.
This was my first and yes on the characters. I’m embarrassed to say that I owe a few photographs to some of them.
I love it. Looks like I’d be the guy on the ground playing dead. I hope he’s only playing! 🙂
Emilio, thank you. He was playing dead. It was fun playing a war photographer without the risk.
