About the Image(s)

I recently visited Fort McHenry in Baltimore where the Star Spangled Banner was written during the War of 1812 between the United States and Britain. This reenactment soldier's fancy costume and manner intrigued me. F 14, 1/800 sec, ISO 640 Converted to black and white with Corel Paintshop Pro.

Jim, interesting image of the reenactment, full of action given by the smoke from the firing canons. I believe that the officer looking away from us (given by his sword) is controlling the activities. I find the crop to be very tight and of unconventional ratio. I used photoshop actions: expand canvas and free transform to add real state to the frame, and then cropped to a more conventional ratio, and added some light to the shadows to see more detail.   Posted: 10/12/2019 10:08:54
