    Ignorant of Napoleonic military subjects as I am, I had to go look up "Cantiniere", but I also like the figure and your red. I'd rather not tamper with your photos using Photoshop, but would like to see the blues and other colors also. Could you take a bit more well lit photo?

    For fellow ignoramuses, a Cantiniere was the spouse of one of the regiment soldiers who held a civilian contractor position with the regiment, dispensing wine. Their "uniform" was a combination of regimental and civilian clothing. They were apparently very popular in Napoleonic and post-Napoleonic France and were the subject of plays and songs. The Cantinieres marched at the head of their regiments in parades and military reviews. Three photos...

    All the best,
    Dan

    Dan, Marc, thank you both very much for your comments. You should both know by now that photography is not my strong point. There is no blue in it and there is quite strong contrasts, until I can take a decent photo you`'ll have to believe me. :p

    Interesting stuff Dan I hadn't realised they had spouses I thought they were sort of an early NAAFI thing. Lovely stuff Rog as I said and I'll never criticise somebodys photos given the state of mine :cautious:
