Opening ceremony with emphasis on women's sufferage (women did not get the right to vote until 1920 in the US).   Era represented 1890.

And finally some odds and ends shots:

For those not a fan of the monochrome processing I've done here - the color versions:

Very good story, and a very good idea to make it BW

Andrew, the images look amazingly well processed for the concept, especially the first batch.  Thank you for sharing!

I wonder if I'm seeing the rolling shutter effect in the image (DSC_9741) capturing the moment at which the batter hits the ball?

I believe not.   The kind of wood used for the bat bends more so than a modern wood bat.   The shutter speeds used were between 1/2000 and 1/4000 on the D500.

Andrew, these are excellent.  They have to be B&W  ;) and really nice treatments.   I guess you could 'colour' them ( current craze) but that would be a heck of a lot of work.
Thanks for sharing.   Even the Continuity Check is good.  Just the guy in modern cap and shades in the Suffragettes shot  :)

Yeah, wish I could have controlled the crowd, but could not.  The sufferage sign holders were only on one section of the opening ceremony.  I could have gone in and removed them, I guess.

Excellent photography and perfect processing to match the purported 1890s time-slot!

This series should all be printed as at least 20" x 16"s and hung permanently in a Ohio museum.

(Yes it would be well worth while to clone out those annoying bye-standers in their baseball caps and sunglasses!)

I might just do that once I have the time.
