[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken at Kelmarsh English Heritage weekend (Northampton UK) it shows a Royalist soldier from the English Civil War (1641–1651) He was rushing from one display to another and I asked him for a shot, he stopped ,posed and then hurried off .. never said a word.

Great facial expression and he does look mean. Good details and colors. Good composition and framing by putting the person off to the side.

Good shot,
Colours, textures, details and light are very well controlled.
His shadowed visage looks good. Not dark at all. Dynamic range is perfect.
The Nikon D200 and (of course) you did a great job here.
A pity the weapon butt and finger are cropped though ;)
Nice one Michael ;)

Hi Michael,
I like your DOF,sure makes your main subject POP out at the viewer. You have used the rule of thirds well ,with the placement of this soldier. I'm sure you could have chosen to use a fill flash, to rid the shadow from his face,& I like that you prefered not to,as he does look more serious having it there.That is one large rifle he had to carry into the battlefield,& I would have thought a heavy load,but he seems to hold it with ease?
