About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Thanks for the tip

Thanks, I didn't catch the shoulder stuff. I see you posted yours as well, and no offense taken. There is more then enough room here for interpretation and enjoyment by all!

You beat me to it.

I was just starting on this one yesterday.

That is really not bad at all for your first piece. One of the only things I could call out on it is that the border and rank on the shoulder boards should be gold. Keep up the good work, you will only get better with more practice. I hope you would not consider it an insult if I upload my own version of this when I get done with it.
