Independence Day
« on: June 30, 2018, 11:08:05 pm »
It's after midnight and officially July now. I won't be here for the Fourth of July but I wanted to post this pic before I skip town in a day or so. I can't remember where I saw it. I think it was on an AR manufacturers Facebook page. If anyone recognizes it I'd like to give credit where it's due.

I'm co-opting this as well.   I might search for an original source then photoshop it and use for myself on Wednesday.

And with a little time on my hands, I've made that picture into HD format

I took your HD and filled in the sides. Squint a lot and it won't look too bad.  :)

Excellent job.

Mine follows the current trend, especially in TV news, of blurring the pillars.  I'm not a big fan of it, but in this case it does give a sense of the action and fog of the battle field while focusing on the main subject.

Nice job on the filling in.  It looks good without a squint.

I've always wondered what would happen to Santa Anna if time travel were possible, and Travis, Bowie, Crockett and all were in possession of a .50 cal Barrett with a good Nightforce scope
