[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Man has been at war with each other since the beginning of their existence. War is madness because it never solve any problems, instead it causes senseless death and destruction. Untold amount of resources are wasted and clearly produced no clear winner even the victors. Is it too much to hope that man will someday realize that there are better alternative to war?

Taken at the Age Of Chivalry Renaissance Festival at the Silver Bowl Park in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Bonjour Eleu,

Some call this bravoury, but there is no bravoury in war...
The "decisive moment" is here, but I wish you would have tried a lower pov, to concentrate more on the knights.
I know it is not easy, but the background is as usual quite disturbing...
Looks a bit overexposed too.
Still, a nice snap shot...

Hi Eleu.

i like the scene, its one venue that I have not witnessed, am sure its quite spectacular. Madness, yes, its a very good point you make, and another good addition for the theme.

stv ;o))

Hi Eleu,

I agree with you war is madness. The point of view is showing the action at the Chivalry Renaissance Festival. It is clear and sharp. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Eleu

A good addition to the Friday 'madness' theme. It's a bit hard to control this type of choreographed scene unless you personally direct it, so not a bad result at all. Good colour, sharpness, & saturation with excellent symmetry of the 2 jousting knights. Tfs!

Good shot Eleu. Nicely composed with all the action in the centre.
I like all the little extras around the edges putting everything into context.
Excellent sharpness.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Ciao Eleu, great capture of fantastic medioeval rievocation, splendid light, fine details and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hi Eleu,
Quite support your note.Interesting image with numerous points of focus, well composed and good depth.Good combination of the spectators watching medieaval fights.

Hello Eleu

I agree 100%. I am waiting for God to stop it all. I like your addition to the theme. Sharp and full of study. Nice
