    Nicely done. I see you're putting that fantastic 70-200 to good use.

    Very much so - it stayed on the camera all day (well, it came off, but only to add/remove the 1.4x TC).

    I saw this one at a glance and thought this pic was the real McCoy from WW1 until I opened my eyes a little more. This one looks great, he looks like he’s out to do business.

    The costumes were very authentic, made for some nice photography :)

    Nice B&W and a great composition. I can't make out the background but my mind says mechanical, perhaps tank. It could well be a picnic table but your excellent DoF has the whole thing working together for me.

    Very nice Daveo! Love the P-P on this one, it's like you scanned a 1942 film negative!
