Missed that-went through Sandbach as well—-Nice one Ian–perhaps better to have not nicked the lieutenants ceremonial sword off at the top==my guess is you have more shots with the full sword though—great “proper” photo.
Thanks, Ken. It’s shot with a Fuji 35mm prime (equivalent to a 50mm on full-frame). So I’m afraid losing the top of the sword was a compromise to get other aspects of the framing right – to do with being near enough but still including both the cap and the sword hilt. So the top of the sword had to go. Win some, lose some, eh? 😉
Anyway, it’s gritty documentary photography, rather than a competition entry, so no worries! 😉
(Used Silver Efex Pro 2 to get the film ‘look’ – Fuji Neopan Pro 1600 pushed 2 stops, if I remember right.)
