    You would think that they would stick out like dogs privates wearing that white helmet on their scone like that .... almost like a beacon screaming "kill me - I'm important" :-)

    Well it was based on the British uniform so there's no surprise that common sense was somewhat neglected ;-)

    He looks the part too. Serious neck band holding that hat on. You've captured a great expression.
    Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

    I hear you David...
    "Right...everyone quickly jump up out of the trenches and run aimlessly at the machine guns of the enemy." "The first ten thousand of you will blunten their bullets, so the next ten thousand will have a good run at it old chaps!"

    The reenactors do a very good job of authenticity, tis very good to watch.
    Aye, so Pip Pip chaps, over the top you go.

    I almost made this, but didn't *laughs*. Nice shot. Was it good overall? Would have been decent lighting. No harsh contrast to deal with.

    Overall, quite good. Less people than the Abbey, making it easier to get decent shots, and the even light was great for portraits (just crappy for any time you wanted blue sky in the frame).
