View Full Version : WWII Weekend at a local park

05-05-2012, 08:56 PM
This weekend, a local historical park area is hosting a WWII weekend. There are re-enactors, some vintage war-time vehicles, big band type bands, a swing dance, etc.... and these are some shots that I took today. I have more on the PP shelf, but I need to take a break.....

Great series Justin. I love the tones and PP.
I've never really understood the re-enactment thing, but I think it is cool that other people do.

very cool set for sure! Last 2 shots are my faces. Love the gunfire at left in shot 4.
On some other PP, maybe try some bw or monochrome? Just a thought

I tried the b/w-monochrome thing, and the area was so verdant, all the camo blended in, which what is what it is supposed to do, but it makes for a difficult photo.....

Really like these sets Justin. Love the last one of the first set especially. So much interaction and realism captured. Well done on all though.

very different series - well done.

Great series. Love the processing and genuine feel to your capture of the re-enactment. Nicely done

Great series with a lot of realism and technicolor looks.
