Hi Tim, Wonderful job, another member posted some nice shots of Antietam few weeks ago, been reading a little history lately. Easy to get lost in thought there isnt it?

Thanks guys, I'll have to work on a couple more. I also have some from Antietam as I passed through there on my way to Dahlgren where I am temporarily stationed. I'm thinking about heading up to Gettysburg one of these weekends for a day trip as well.

Glad this one was appreciated I really liked how it turned out.

First thing that came in to my mind was "The war is over", very rarely I get a reaction like that from photos.

Nice mood.

Thanks for all the kind words, I attached another image below. This one is with a Promaster 28-105, the focal length for this photo was 50mm with an aperture of 4.5 and 1/90 shutter speed, ISO 100.

This photo is about two weeks ago at Antietam as I passed through.
