    Pretty damned good costuming and set props there, Bruce. Can't find a thing to tip me off that this is a re-enactment ('course I'm no historian).

    Couple of shots from a Dallmeyer 5 1/2" projection petzval. picture of the lens, friction mounted into an oversized hole



    Crop of the one pictured further down:


    I really should be composing with cropping in mind for these non close-up shots, but I'm just getting the hang of this lens. Would work very well with my 6x7 rollfilm holder as well.

    That leaf shot is terrific. It gives me vertigo.
    I like the uncropped picture of the photographer better than the cropped version.
