    Hello Ike,

    I'm a big fan of ancient ruins (probably because there aren't any in Australia), and the Middle East, North Africa and Europe are rich in archeological sites like this. Good sharpness and textural details. Tfs!

    Hello Murat,

    The trouble with wearing red against a blue sea bg is that it makes you highly visible and an easy target for enemy archers and cannons! I guess camouflage wasn't known in those days. Good sharpness and lighting. Tfs!

    Hello Gert,

    It's the same all through eastern Europe. Old habits die hard and although countries like Romania and Bulgaria are no longer dictatorships, a lot of people are still keeping an eye on neighbors and tourists in line with the old Soviet Union policy. More effective than cctv in its day! The man watching resembles a secret agent. Good daily life scene from a little seen part of the world. Tfs!

    Hello Bev

    Not just the width, but also the height. It's a proven fact that people from 500 years ago or more were smaller in stature, lived much shorter life spans and had poorer diet and health. This armor looks more suitable for a 5 foot 6 inch warrior, rather than any fighter today over 6 foot. Or 2 metres.
