[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yesterday I visited Waterloo, Belgium, the place where Napoleon Bonaparte, the emperor of the French emperium was defeated by the British, Belgian, German en Dutch allies.
The famous battle of Waterloo, which took place on June 18, 1815 was reconstructed. This weekend around 1000 uniformed military enthusiasts from Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, The Netherlands, Russia, Czech Republic and Belgium gather in the same orchard the Imperial Guard descended on in june 1815. During this weekend a variety of military exercises and different demonstrations take place.

It gives the opportunity to take pictures of historical scenes ;-)

En effet, une très jolie reconstitution historique qui s'est déroulée comme à chaque fois :-)
La photo est superbe au niveau de la compo et de la netteté, j'aime aussi beaucoup le plan large que donne ce cadre.
Bravo et merci,
Seb :-)

Hi Marcel! I like the details of the subject. You have much space on the right, you could have moved a bit to the right. Good shot anyway. TFS,
Freddie :)

I like the way ones eyes follow in the same direction as those of the horsemen.
Good colour, sharpness and contrast.

The sharpness, the composition, the note is simply fantastique! Great shot! Nice frame, colors are greats! wonderful composition. I really like this picture! TFS

Great POV, framing, lighting, and details. A fine job.
Thanks for sharing,

Mooie foto Marcel,

We worden uitgenodigd om over de schouder mee te kijken. Het witte paard steekt fraai af en de donkere lucht voegt drama toe. De keuze voor "breedbeeld" is ook een goede.


Hoi Marcel,

Wat maak je me nou? Back in time, and you didn't informed me? A disgrace... :) we must have crossed our path, I was in Volkel (gues; at the KLu Airshow) and you in Waterloo. Boy what a stunning picture, a shame the bud of the left horse is missing, but otherwise a really stunning picture my friend!


NB: Who won?

:) Later....

well done! looks like a movie shot! TFS

Wow, wat een werk heb je hieraan gehad. Ik zag wel gelijk dat je veel aan die achtergrond gedaan had, maar zoveeel?! Ik vind dat je het mooi neergezet hebt! Je zit te wachten totdat de tegenpartij te voor schijn komt...

Leuke workshop in combinatie met de luchtvogels :)


Bonjour Marcel,

je savais que cette reconstitution existe. Mais là, la photographie que tu en as fait nous donne l'impression d'y être, c'est magnifique. Et le choix du plan large et de l'entourage, donne un format cinématographique.
Bravo ! Et quelles couleurs ... waouhhh ! On a l'impression que l'on va voir réellement un moment de l'histoire se dérouler sous nos yeux.
Merci de partager avec nous,
Amitiés, Corinne

It is fantastic photo, I feel this historical mood. Very good PP work, wonderful landscape. My congratulations.
