Challenge: Free Study 2008-10 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM
Location: Gettysburg, PA
Date: Oct 26, 2008
Aperture: 2.8
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/350
Galleries: Portraiture, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Oct 29, 2008

Taken near the Triangular Field in Gettysburg. I was taking photos of the battlefields and monuments and turned around to see a man in full Civil War uniform.

He was nice enough to pose for me.

Photo editing:
Cropped, desatured, Topaz labs filter to bring out the details, USM, cloned an overly peach area on the shirt cuff to minimize the peach color (looked like a stain on the cuff), border, resize.
I may have adjusted exposure & contrast before running the Topaz filter.
Everything but the clone was done to the entire image.

An excellent portrait. Very well done with light, detail, processing, and giving it a feel of the age.

Really takes one back in time. Beautiful processing and image quality. Subject is perfect for the costume and his expression really shows strength and worldliness!

B&W works but somehow I want it in sepia. Nice detail and overal processing suits the subject well.
