    Every year they have a WWII reenactment near my house. It's a great event that is really well done. I ran out there today to check things out and shot some pics.

    I was wondering what you guys thought of various editing styles. Here's a couple of pics I've edited. I was thinking B&W would be cool of course, but I also like the desaturated look of vintage color photos. I tried a couple, let me know if you like the shots and editing... any suggestions would be welcomed as to editing ideas.

    the desaturated shots work best for me... really gives it that WWII vibe in them. Great shots!!

    Thanks Bigboi3, I am partial to the desaturated look too.

    Here's a shot of a US recon aircraft, can you believe they even had these (more than one) buzzing around? This one did a low enough pass that I could get this uncropped shot.

    EDIT: I deleted the B&W version from my portfolio so now only the desaturated one exists. So I nuked this post and moved the image to the original post.

    Great shots! I agree with the desat rather than B&W...I think you might even de sat that last one a little more, but maybe not. :thumbup:
