Gives a good hint of the chaos to come ... great combination of sharp focus and soft look.

I love the expression of the chap on the far right. Priceless.

Talk about putting the viewer in the thick of the action! Excellent work.

Nicely timed and composed photograph, with good detail and a great point of view, shooting through the other spears. ((8))

This image really swallows the viewer whole, takes them right into the thick of the action. Like this a lot 9.

I find all the spears to distracting in this photo. Couldn't you have asked some of them to put some down??? lol j/k. It makes for a nice almost civil war type shot but all those spears... man alive. Good job and keep up the good work in 2005.

I've never seen a 'war re-enactment' photo that I really liked...until now!

The spears everywhere gives it a beautiful sense of confusion...

Hope you had adequate body armour to get this close to the action.
Nice capture of these two warriors, would have liked to seen a less cropped image and more of the fog and battle.

They look Spanish to me, kill 'em all!
Nice work, spears vs spears. I like the expression on the faces and the chaos. Especially the right one has a funny look. :)

Pennsic? Neat capture. I know the weapons add to the shot - but I wish the face of the man in red was not so hidden. Looks very realistic, though.

Really, really nice work. It is a pity that botht he significant faces are partially obscured by lances...
