DSLR-A100 1/400 second F/5.0 ISO 250 110 mm

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.

How do they work out who gets shot? Can't wait to find out who wins :)

@Richard: Good question! I'm not sure ... but as for who wins, that's funny!

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

This is a fabulous shot Judy! The reality of war is evident here! Well seen and captured! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Thank you. The reality when watching the reenactment is such that I had to focus on shooting ... or get 'lost' in the tragedy of it all.

Mhelene from Paris, France

Terrible !! Great picture !

25 Feb 2011 12:53pm

@Mhelene: You are right ... and thank you.

Jen from Alpharetta, United States

You can almost feel the pain and confusion...nicely done

@Jen: Thanks, Jen.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

This could be a still from a film, they look so authentic.

25 Feb 2011 3:49pm

@Curly: Thanks a lot ... and I have one pre-posted for Sunday in monotone ... looks pretty real.

Judy, all of your recreation photos are crisp and clean. Great job! This really must have been a great event that puts our little recreation to shame. Keep up the good work. Thanx for the feedback on my images.

@steve Kopf: Thanks so much, Steve. This event was the 31st here in town, so it has grown over the years. Yours could grow also if it has enough support!

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

Cool battle scene, but to me the woman, even it period costume, seems a little out of place. Would they have been there at that time? Perhaps the battle was on her family home property?

25 Feb 2011 9:57pm

@B. Thomas: Perhaps I should have cropped her out. Sunday's image in monotone will show she is part of the medics group. From everything I've read, there were more women involved than we knew.

john4jack from Corvallis, Oregon, United States

i like seeing the woman

25 Feb 2011 10:39pm

@john4jack: Thanks, Jack ... and she'll appear again on Sunday.

Ralph Jones from Detroit, United States

I think this is my favorite of this series.
Thank you so much for your kind words, and I am happy Mike enjoyed my essay. Please tell Mike that I truly admire his contribution to society. It takes a very special person to do what firefighters do, a true hero, thank you Mike!

26 Feb 2011 1:07am

@Ralph Jones: Thank you, Ralph, from both of us. Most of the firefighters we knew were really big 'teddy bears' - rugged men, with big hearts!

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

This is again quite atmospheric...(minus the woman on the right). I believe if this were a scene during a filming session it would certainly feel very realistically created.

@Japanalia: This shot preceded the one I posted in monotone on Sunday. I missed getting the rest of the medical group here. ;(

Tim from Ft. Worth, United States

i like the feel of your shots and series. these are gratifying (as historians) to shoot; one never tires of the opportunities for great shots.
