Thank you to everyone who commented yesterday ... I didn't answer individually, but preferred to view your images with the time I had.

This shot is probably better than yesterday's; I like them as a pair so framed them to match.

SONY DSLR-A100 1/320 second F/6.3 ISO 250 300 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Lorraine from Gatineau, Canada

You should get paid for these ;)

@Lorraine: Your enjoyment is my 'pay'. :D

Barbara from Florida, United States

I like both yesterdays and today's, although this one shows more action and the flags are a nice addition.
Nice composition, Judy.

@Barbara: As a pair, I really like them together. Thanks, Barb.

Chris from South Jersey, United States

the smoke is wonderful - the noise must have been something else!!

21 Feb 2009 3:12pm

@Chris: The smoke is sometimes blown away before you can capture it. This day the air was cold with only a little breeze. The noise is very loud on this Saturday and Sunday we could here the cannons from our home, which is about five miles away.

Don from spokane, United States

I had to go back and see yesterday's. They make a fine pair. I love how the smoke lingers in the air diffusing the colors. Nice shooting!

@Don: Thank you, Don; I really appreciate your comment!

Fliss from Melbourne Beach, United States

I too love how the smoke is lingering in the photo... makes it look like you can hear the canons going off.... does that make sense?

21 Feb 2009 9:00pm

@Fliss: Yes, it makes sense to me! If the smoke lingered, then so did the booms of the cannons.
BTW, the real cannons fire packed black powder, but with no projectile ... so no one gets hurt!

Markela from Athens, Greece

I can hear the canon shots.....You transported me through time with this photo, Judy! Lovely colors, nice framing!

21 Feb 2009 10:16pm

@Markela: Thank you very much, Markela ... I'm happy you experienced some of the Civil War reenactment.

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

I'll bet the pair make a stunning statement together on a wall!!!! Great how the smoke flows thru the shot!!

22 Feb 2009 12:05am

@Susan: Thank you, Susan; while they're not printed or hung, I do like the pair of shots.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

WOW I liked yesterdays one, but your right this is superb also, so much action, they would look great framed and hung together I am sure

22 Feb 2009 12:59am

@JJ: Thanks, JJ ... I liked the pairing also.

dang from Atlanta, United States

Excellent series, Judy. I worked with a young man who participated in reenactments many years ago. He was quiet a large, burly looking guy making quiet an impression hand sewing during slow times. They go to great lengths to keep these realistic. A sad part of our history, but important not to forget. Thanks for sharing your excellent shots.

@dang: Thanks, Dang, for your comment. You obviously understand their aim to be realistic.
