About the Image(s)

This photo was taken at a recent Medieval Fair. It was the first time I had been to one and watching the men battle each other in heavy armour was eye opening. The noise as they hit each other was surprising. At the end of each battle they were exhausted.
Please tell me what you would do with this photograph.

Hey Julie, great image. I like what you did with the editing and with the background removal. It seems like there are a billion ways to do that now. Anyway, great job. the only thing that sort of bothered me was aspect angle of the surfer he was resting his hands and weapon on. So I worked on it, but the crop became very tight, maybe too tight. I also used a filter in Silver Efex called "More Silver". Your shot and edit was great.   Posted: 07/02/2024 18:13:28

Thanks for your comments Don. I am not happy with the lower part of the image and need to work on it. I have room in the original image to play with.   Posted: 07/02/2024 20:26:48

Julie, what a sensational image!
Well done.
It expresses the feeling of a defeated/exhausted knight.
I like the B&W treatment and I also like the way Don has rotated it slightly to make the bench he is leaning on horizontal.
A great image.

Thanks Martin. The poor guy really was absolutely exhausted. They really don't hold back in the battles. They whack each other with the swords very hard, so not only do they get worn out hitting the opponent, but they need to deal with getting beaten themselves.   Posted: 07/03/2024 19:39:54

Wonderful, creative treatment of the picture.
I am not sure of changing the aspect angle though. I like the man's head slightly tilted which is more realistic.   Posted: 07/09/2024 09:38:04
