Oh wow I always wanted to go to one of those historical re-enactments. Great job capturing the action with an old-time feel. These pictures are fantastic.

edit: after seeing your pictures, I intended to go to a local restored British island fort from the early 1800's. I've lived here for 11 years, and yet we've never gone to visit it (even though it's less than 10km away). I figured I could round out my third submission tomorrow with pictures from there.

Alas, it's still closed while they repair all the flood damage. They're anticipating re-opening within a couple weeks.
Photons are your friends! :-)

Thank you! I don't know what's available in your neck of the woods but living history deals are few and far between here in California. In the 1980's when I was living near Washington, DC. there were quite a few things to choose from spanning our colonial period, French and Indian wars, Revolutionary War to Civil War period. It's quite interesting to see those places with re-enactors doing there thing.

I was using the HD video mode on my K-5 a bit too. I once again demonstrated my lack of prowess with video.

Great photos Earl. I could never really understand war though. I think I like the returning fire shot this best. Up close and personal. Cheers JIM

Mike - I love Tree Trunk
Tiff- your blue series is kinda fun and the b/w set really shows how you're looking at things differently than you did a year ago. :-)
Tim- great "War Of Northern Agression" reenactment set. Hand to Hand Combat is my fav.

Guys I haven't spent as much time with this thread as I'd like to have. Just been overwhelmed with work. Today's the last so post em up .
I did steal a little time yesterday to try out a new lens that I've wanted to play with for 3 weeks now. I needed something wider than 24mm and as you all know I'm cheap but I found a deal on a NOS Sigma EX 17-35 / 2.8 - 4. It fit my prerequisites full frame capable , no HSM to fail ,relatively fast , built in Japan and CHEAP!!!!!!
Now I just have to learn to see in wide angle :lol:
Here are a few from yesterday.

DRN - I think you've done good job as host. It's been a busy week for a lot of us too. Nice shots of the A-6, A-4, and F-4. Looks like you have wide covered there. I have an old Tokina 19-35 and it's a fine lens for both APS-C and FF. Nice acquisition.

And Thus ends another chapter of That Was The Week That Was.
I Had some tough decissions to make this week.
Friendly Photon - stayed up all night and battled mosquioes from hell to give us a sunrise series.
Pablo- posted stuff that looked like it came from a Cecil B. flick
Tiffpix-went after the theme with her Blue set.
sf_frank- gave us a wonderful view of the open road (West Coast style)
mikeSF- shared a couple Adams /Weston ish tree shots from his family vaction.
blackcloudbrew- not onlyimpressed me with his composition but with his abillity to enjoy 3 summertime activities in one week.

All that being said this weeks winner is Jimbo's picture titled Taking Flight.
Jim there is just so much Wow factor in this shot.
