San Jacinto Day Portrait 2

We were fortunate to have as many reenactors in period dress around to photograph as we did considering that the main event, the full reenactment of the capture of Santa Anna, was cancelled due to soggy conditions. I particularly thought this fellow on horseback had the authentic look down pat.

Really nice portrait Larry!

I like the composition and lighting a lot. Also the subject's contemplative posture adds interest to the photo.

Well done!

Everything about this one goes together. To me, this looks like something that would have come from the period--that is if they had a fancy Olympus DSLR!

Nice use of blurring your background. Sometimes I forget to do this and it usually really makes that shot...as it does here.
