Aquino tank weekend in B&W with DA*60-250mm
10

Hi all,

I also attended this fascinating tank and infantry display.  I attended the morning re-enactment of this tank battle in Italy in WW2.  All shot with K-5IIs and DA*60-250mm with some cropping to a lot of cropping.  Since this was a World War 2 battle, I converted to black & white in-camera using the monochrome digital filter, using either the red or blue filter to get max contrast and suit personal taste.

Stug. III with the long 75mm

Panzer III with long 50 mm

M4 Sherman with long 76mm and M24 Chaffee (I believe) leading the attack

Bren gun carrier with British/Canadian troops

German halftrack (251) with 37mm AT gun

German troops counter-attacking

German soldier firing a MP-40 Schmeisser SMG.  Great sound!

Cheers!
