The Victory Show is a WWII re-enactment event with static displays, air craft displays and the final "battle". It's on a large scale. Sherman tanks, 88mm field guns, Thompson sub-machine guns - the lot.

Here's a few images taken with my NEX-5n, I have more taken last year with an Alpha 700.

Great shots Jeff! Yeah, I'm into period stuff like that too. :)

I'm still sniffing around for a period 1940's legacy lens to use for WWII shots like those...

I keep coming back to this... really pleasing composition, textures, colours and vignetting.

Makes me think of the TV series "The Pacific"

Thanks for the comments. I try to crop close to remove very distracting backgrounds (public milling around etc.). These RAW files were put through Lightroom and tweaked a little as the 5n seems to slightly overexpose (expose to the right isn't a bad thing as you can recover the shadow areas).
