Battle in the Woods
From Civil War Re-enactment

That is smoke from the guns and cannons, not fog.
At times the smoke is so thick you can hardly see the soldiers.

Frank you are man! - This series is spot on as if the viewer is hanging back on a horse and adjusting his camera settings and capturing the moment in time!! Top Shelf!!!

Another superb image of a time when the bullets were real, and men like these rode into battle, never knowing if it would be their last...
Every time you post such a realistic scene, Frank, it makes me think about the b&w images in a very large book I have about the Civil War. Any of your reenactment photos, including this one (with its crackled border), would fit seamlessly into that book.
Hope you have a peaceful day.

Hi Frank,
It's been a while since I have been
in Better Photo, but I wanted to comment on this photo. I love it. Looks so real (I know it's real), but you know what I mean. Excellent work.
