Love the dynamic of the native dancer, the tenderness of the child in #8, and #13 just beats them all. smile Incredible work my dear friend

This series would be cool in print as a small(ish) coffee table book or even a zine (self/small run magazine) .

Thank you Russell!
I plan to go back there this year and get model releases from all who didn't sign them so I can do something in print!
I appreciate you sharing your thoughts and ideas!

I hope you are composing a book with this series! Just image all the nostalgia groups that would love to have these. The characters, the authentic costumes and period tools, cookware, etc and the beautiful uniform, antique photo edits, just couldn't be better! WOW!!!!

Thanks so much Jay!
I think I would have to find these characters and get model releases to do that.
I plan to go back again this year, so any of the people there, I will do just that!
Thanks for your encouraging words and liking,commenting, saving photos, etc.
Much appreciated!

Sounds good! 
Thank You for such excellent images and taking the considerable amount of time, I'm sure it took, to produce the final images!!! 
I'm always keen to see your fine offerings!
Rock On!

Thanks Jay! You are so kind to take the time to let me know your thoughts!
It is my pleasure to work with these images! I don't like post processing (as I have a fetish about getting it right in the camera-as I want to hone my photography skills, not necessarily post processing skills). However, when it has a purpose such as this making the photos fit the era, it becomes a joy!
I actually took a lot of time developing my own script and saved it to get the consistent results. I can tweak it to my hearts content if I want. Creating a script specifically for a batch of photos, makes the processing much less time consuming! smile Hopefully, I will get series 4 posted tomorrow...stay tuned!

I'll be looking forward to all your fine offerings. 
Good idea about creating a script to do batch processing!
Thanks!

Thanks Jay!
I still apply the script one at a time, and individually tweak some of them, but it does save a ton of time and keeps them consistent!

I do much the same thing, especially when I have a ton of images from a single outing.
It does save time, while still allowing for individual image tweaking.... What's not to like.......right??? smile+1
