    Civil War Camp

    The 14th Annual "Battle of Ballast Point" Civil War re-enactment happened to be at Fort Desoto Park this weekend, so we broke from the beach and strolled through the camp. Very foggy morning, which I think helped add to the mood a bit and obscure anything modern that could have ruined the period of the shot.

    Only have on pic. to post, more to follow:

    Nice composition and toning. I agree about the fog adding to the mood. Try to separate the tents from the background just a little more.

    Thanks Mike, I've reposted with selective bleaching on the tents - I think it looks better, what do you think?

    Looks fine now. I don't have to concentrate to distinguish between the tents and the background.

    The walls and ceiling used a shell, stone and concrete mix.
