    Thanks mate. It was the wild North West for the day! :lol:

    Any other views/comments? Does the framing & vignetting look OK?

    (Personally I kind of like the vignetting in that last one.)

    These are great! Love the smoke in the first one, the look of the 'old codger' taking a bead on an enemy in the second, and the fact there's a female returning fire in the third.

    A camera in a gun fight would put you at a definite disadvantage alright.

    Nice shots I love living history.

    Better lighting, exposure, postprocessing of the faces would certainly be helpful.

    I really like the 1st one, it makes me feel like I need to duck.

    Thanks Quad b :thumbup:. I didn't think the white vignetting would be too popular as it's more a darkroom/printing effect than a camera/photography one.

    If I could take the shot again I would leave more space around the subjects & pull the vignetting in all around to eliminate the sharp "photo" edge top, bottom & sides. Unfortunately is was a bit of a one off shot! :lol:
