It's a really nice shot & having a Speed Graphic I especially say well done. The only problem with it is what gives it away as a reenactment. The participants are far too well fed. To be fair, this really can't be helped as they aren't exercising hard 6 days a week on C rations. Not as bad as seeing a fellow as overweight as myself in an ACW reenactment though o_O

And they're so clean! Almost like in the movies!! Still, a nice image to remind us of a special breed of photographers.

If you look at sizes of surviving uniforms from the US Military in both World Wars, you'd think they were fought by little people.
I can provide plenty of photographic evidence of chubby folks though. The US Army was the best fed army at those times.

Anniversary Speed Graphic, Kodak 127mm f/4.7 Ektar...I'm guessing Kodak BW400CN film in a Graphic 23 adapter.....
