Town Folk

This past weekend we visited Beaumont Ranch in Grandview, Texas to attend an event hosted by an old friend of ours. Part of Beaumont Ranch's amenities is a recreated old west town complete with reenactors as shown in today's photo.

Camera / Lens: Canon 40D / Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom

Black and White or sepia are always good colors to use with images that are connected with the "old days". I want to be the sheriff. Interesting picture.

Nice shot. Good job on post processing. I would have liked to have seen the the tall dude wearing round glasses from the period. It's a small detail, but the only one I see to connect the shot to more modern times.

Thanks Wayne and Larry!

Larry - I assumed the guy researched and chose period specific eyeware but I see now that they do look pretty modern! If you're into re-enacting I would think you would get your costume 100% correct.

Good capture and good post processing, especially using a high contrast sepia as the final media. For some reason, to my eye, the three people just do not seem to go together. I cannot figure out why I think that, but I do. Anybody else think that?

Thanks Patrick!

Is it their relative heights? Maybe I should have had the lady stand on a stool? Or the tall get down on his knees? :-)
