Shot in Towada, Japan at an event called "Yabusame". This was really fun to watch as all the competitors were female. Since women were not able to carry swords, this is how they participated in battle and game. Wicked fun shooting.

awesome!!! you had a perfect view of this unusual event! i like that the sepia makes it feel as though you really are in a different period, yet you can still see the people on the sidelines with cameras

Nice capture. Wish this was 640. Tones work well. Depending what you had to work with, perhaps a variation in composition.
