Monterey John from Hollister, CA, United States

The fellow at front left needs to ease up on the grits! :)

Uniforms, such as they are, are true to Confederate life. Very realistic and well captured.

@Monterey John: Good point about the "grits" ... ;D

Richard from Duns, United Kingdom

Superb photo, I guess the only thing that 'gives it away' as being shot today is the larger guy at the front. . . food was not so plentiful back then! Lovely processing too.

@Richard: Thank you, Richard, and you're right about the 'plump' fella in the front. ;D

A wonderful day in the life shot Judy! The corporals were the first line of duty and responsible for keeping their new people up to speed! Well seen and captured! ;-)

Barbara from Florida, United States

Superb timing on the shutter, you capture the expression of youth becoming part of the men. The older fellow next to him appears to be giving the young man training right on the battlefield. Very authentic mood here. Great photography.

@Barbara: We were glad to have 'planted' Mike to stake out our spot as it allowed for better shots. Thanks, Barb.

Franz from Baden, Austria

wonderfully composed and showing great and intriguing details! very skillful use of dof as well! i like the stout gentleman on the left, juxtaposed to the young boy in the middle, and i love the variety of uniforms and hats they wear!

@Franz: Thank you so much, Franz. There are lots more of this series in my portfolio if you're interested. ... I had a good time at your albums on WS. I used to be quite active there, but now I'm here most of the time. ;D

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Well....some of the soldiers are a little too fat for soldiering.....But the mentoring act is well captured!

@Japanalia: You're right, but taking part in the reenactments is probably good for his health!
