Taken at a medieval re-enactment display at a local Country Show. Quite a few events and people to shoot but I think this was the most interesting shot. Bit overcast on the day but I think the photo turned out OK in the end. His hat really was that green too :)

Greetings from the critique club:)

I have lots of good things to say about this-I really liked it during voting and gave it an 8.

Firstly it hits the challenge spot on (no pun intended)It portrays an interesting cultural event. The main character of the picture has a great look of concentration and the angle that you have taken this shows this off well, with most of his face showing.

Use of Dof is great, focus is spot on on the main guy and the hand in the left corner is out of focus and so doesn't attract attention. The background is nice and blurry...

I think that the composition is great and you have caught the moment perfectly. Colours and contrast are very natural looking-perhaps the blue could be a bit bluer...but that is just nit-picking!

I think that this is an excellent shot and I really have no ways to improve it! It would be interesting to see a shot of the man on his own too-of course this depends on the opportunities of the day.. Congrats on a new PB! Natasha

Hard scene to compose properly. I like the dof selection, not too shallow.

i like the arrangemtnet of the arrows in this picture the way they have them pulled back makes it more of a action shot

This is one of the better photos in this challenge. Its on topic, composition is great, the coours really stand out. I love the DOF and you got the right person in focus. THe background isn't distracting.
