He's wearing the classic helmet of a centurion, head bristle side-to-side....

contrary to popular belief, centurions were not considered "noncom sergeants" but actually the equivalent of junior field officers...the century was usually between 80-100 men somewhat corresponding to a modern army's company...

You can tell he is a centurion by his transverse crest. Strange he would be in articulated armor, tho. Not normally an officer's choice of armor. As far as the rest of his his kit, the helmet is a spun bowl, not hammered as would have been done originally.

The photo itself is a great composition, tho.

This is a great picture. But it's not a legionnaire. It's a centurion actually. These people led a small group of legionnaires each and it was the position that many wanted.

This is an amazing photo. I have to concur with londonxpress; the colors and the detail are superb, and I love how he is framed by the hair in the helmet. Great portrait!

Nice, it's rare to find a very well done photo of a reinactor like this. Makes those expensive outfits worth the cost.

Thanks, i really appreciate your comment. The costumes and the show they do here in Jerash, Jordan is quite impressive. Im not a big fan of reinactments, but this one was good.

This is a great portrait, from those rich colours, nice exposure, and sharp detail - I also think you've composed the frame perfectly. No critique or suggestions here - just praise :nod:
