Taken at the summer fete at The Warwickshire.

Used camera raw suggestions, added auto levels and then used shadow/highlight to bring out colours.

Liked the colours, but sure it will get panned due to the ropes and the vague shape of a car in the background, but not a lot I could do about that with basic editing!

Goood Old England and not a Frenchie in sight.
There is an Old Castle called Warkworth up in Northumberland with such an event in August.
I cant Wait.
Maybe your right about the ropes, its easy to say now, but it would have been worth taking the Time.
I thought the Yankies would have gave you more interesting comments about the Heritage !

Well Done

ps I like the Black n White fella for obvious reasons !

Nice use of color

Nice catch, but I am a little distracted by the car behind them.
Great shot though.

That is so cool. The lighting on this one is awesome; just bright enough to see everything and the colors. But not glaring off of their armor. 9

This is a good shot, only thing that bothers me is the rope behind the yellow knight

Love it as I'm in the SCA... nice shot... maybe they should turn around and attack the cars behind! good work!

That's pretty cool. I'd like to see that live. It's just a shame some idiot parked his car in the background. I'd like to see that shot with the car and the ropes cloned out.

Nice to show something not seen everyday. Maybe a tad sharper and brighter would help. I like the composition and subject.
