This small group of reenactors at the Gettysburg National Military Park were practicing their formations in Spangler’s Spring.

There was no question who the leader was…and by his stern look I would say it would be wise to do as he told.

    I like the sepia added to this. Great shot.

  • Thanks Diane, I saw what some of the others had done with their reenactor shots and thought I’d try to get a little creative. Thanks again!

    The sepia makes the photo seem like it was taken a long time ago. We can imagine it being taken during the battle.

  • There’s something about seeing the reenactors at the park…just sort of sends shivers down my spine. It really helps what happened there hit home. I went to see a reenactment a few weeks ago, but it was off site. I didn’t get the same feeling as when I saw these soldiers at the park. Thanks Elisa!

    Fantastic capture, Tim! You really caught that stern look in the platoon leader’s eyes brilliantly. Outstanding use of sepia treatment, it suits the image perfectly!

  • Thanks Gene! I loved the look he gave as well!
