64 Pdr. Gun firing - That's the 3rd shot for this weekend and I finally got it.

For its 9th consecutive year, the Queensland Living history Federation presented a multi-period re-enactment event "History Alive" - a journey through time at Fort Lytton National Park in Brisbane (believe it or not....this is in a National Park)


Can you feel the tension...?


Technique/Post Processing:

- 20D (5D is too slow with 3 fps)

- EF 16-35mm 1:2,8 L II USM

- Focal Length 18mm

- f9

- ISO 200

- LEE Filters

- Photomatix single shot tone mapping

- Noise reduction

- Removed refinery from the other side of the river...hehe


I have to say that I was really challenged by David de Groot and Mark as they got the gun fire the day before...well done guys.

I aimed for a composition which fully included all Soldiers to give this some life. As far as I understand, the commanders arm shouldn't be up for the release of the gun fire.
