Faux-Vintage Photos from Gettysburg

Devil's Den
Devil’s Den at the Battle of Gettysburg was an inhospitable place for regular troops, but not for sharpshooters, who hid among the boulders.

I got creative with these photos from my recent trip to Gettysburg National Military Park, editing them in a vintage style in Adobe Lightroom. I like the way they turned out and feel encouraged to be a little more artistic with the way I edit my photos. What do you think?

Virginia Monument at Gettysburg
The Virginia Monument at Gettysburg memorializes Virginians who fought at the battle. A bronze statue of Robert E. Lee on his horse Traveller stands at the top, facing the field of Pickett’s Charge. Erected in 1917.
