Medieval Tournament
Posted By: silverbullet, 07-18-2007, 02:06 PM

Took these at a Medieval Tournament a couple of weeks back. The group (Knights of the Northern Realm) hold an annual tournament at a local park to showcase their craft for the public.

What shall I try and maim the next guy with?

Ya, I have a bandaid on my nose! Wanna fight about it?

To the victor...

Tools of the trade

Great shots Chris. I especially like 1 and 4. I like the energy/dynamism of 1. I wonder how it would have looked with a shallower dof. Perhaps the audience distracts from the central characters? I'm not sure.

Nice shots, but I think your army needs a bigger budget

Thanks for the comments.
Daacon, I'd love to see some of your shots. I only caught the end of the day, as I was at the Street performers earlier in the day.

These really are great shots Chris. But I must say that these guys look like they are having WAY too much fun to be in a battle. It always makes me smile. One of my sons is a die hard Dungeons and Dragons player. Sorta the same type breed as these folk don't ya think?
Thanks for posting these Chris. I really enjoyed the series.
