Hi Jose,
Excellent shot with a great atmosphere - I wonder if this would look better with the modern background replaced with just the rolling hills but a great atmospheric shot. Best wishes

Great action shot enhanced by the sequence of diagonals (lance, horse's coat and structure on right). Your treatment gives this a timeless feel.

Bonjour Jose,

On s'y croirait presque au Moyen-Age,si on n'y prête pas attentio, il n'y a presque rien de moderne aux alentours, le NB "lui sied comme un gant", ce cliché, nous ramène loin en arrière, merci de nous faire partager à travers cette photo, un temps bien révolu!!
PS: Je suis allée regarder ta jolie série sur cet évènement, elle est superbe, un grand merci, jose

superb drama !

Hola Jose
Gran imagen muy bien ambientada con la edicion en blanco y negro ,buen momento con el caballero en plena batalla , una fantastica foto , gracias por compartir

hasta pronto
un saludo

Ola Jose
Wonderful tradition. It's very nice that you have this kind of festivals.
This is a grate photo. Excellent composition and PP work in B&W
Best wishes

Hi Jose,

This is exactly my impression of Medieval age and culture. Thanks for posting this. Such machismo and bravado displayed by the knight or warrior. Congratulations for optimally metering the scene, and your pp work is impeccable. My best regards.


Hi Jose
Great shot of the warrior with nice compo
Good freezing, nice pp works make it looks like old photos
The sky seems a little pixelate but it not count down your wonderful work

Hi Jose...nice black and white shot. Great range of tones. The high contrast adds nicely to the mood of the shot.


Hi jose,

Very nice capture of the moment. You have composed a very nice action photo. Very good idea to use B&W, which had added power and drama to the scene.

Regards and TFS,
