Pictured at the English Heritage weekend, Kelmarsh Hall. A great place for photography if you arrive early to avoid the crowds which come later. The light was quite bright relecting from the tents so I underexposed .7ev to avoid blown highlights and brought out the shadow detail in Nikon NX.

The medieval stuff now is it :o)
Very .. very good Vic .. I am trying to imagine what he is saying to her that makes her laugh so much .. I like the way no one is looking at the lens, so much more natural to the eye than posed shots .. good colours .. an all round pleasant shot mate

Intersting medieval scene wit good side lights who give some nice colours.

This is a beautifully composed, natural shot!
You have controlled the light well! There are highlights to liven the clothes, particularly those of the children, and there are lovely shadows on the floor and to show the folds in the tent!

This one got too little attention! The exposure is spot on! Very difficult in such a low light circumstances and shooting on an angle with the light. Very nice in light, colours as well as composition of this family.
Greetings and have a good weekend,

Good morning, Vic,
I love these kinds of shots and you have done a great job with this one. That light that makes the long shadows is wonderful. The composition is striking in that all the subjects are of different heights and make a very nice circle. The contrast is excellent with that white not being at all blown out and the colors are perfectly saturated. This is a really cool shot! Thanks and regards,
