Trooping the Colour

I watched the Trooping of the Colour [celebrating the Queen’s birthday] on TV last saturday and decided to have a go at taking photos ….[ I’m hoping I haven’t breached any copyright laws].  I was quite pleased with the results in spite of having to deal [post-production] with the inevitable reflections on the tv screen.  I could be clearly seen holding the camera in some of them so had to discard them.

Another problem I had was unwanted lines and ‘moire’ patterns so I removed them as best I could.  As a result sometimes the images weren’t as sharp as I would have liked. Anyway – I tried to compensate what were technical problems by concentrating more on composition and cropping.

I love all the colour and pomp and circumstance too.  My dear old Dad was in the TA Royal Artillary in the 1920 s  and was with  horses and gun carriages like these. I specially like their uniforms – so dashing ….
