A chevalery show in the park animalier, Sciez, Thonon. with the medieval kind of atmosphere
In this park animalier, they breed the rapaces, eagles and owls, and make some shows.
This knight show is a new side show which is quite interesting (first time for me to see directly).

Now here's something we don't see every day! I love how you've captured a dramatic point of view and also have a nice background. Very fun and engaging image, Cessy!

A great capture Cessy, i like this dynamic frame. It seems you blured a little the pic on the boards. the only default i see is your big black board.

Wow, Cessy, very vivid and very dynamic picture you have captured here. You frame made the picture lighting condition focused on the knight and the horse even more. The dust kicked up is shown clearly. An excellent action picture with excellent POV and DOF. Well done

Quite an impressive and dynamic capture here, he looks like one of the nine from Mordor, only the white horse is stolen from Gandalf and does not match, I like too the dynamism of the position, outlined by the dust behind the horse.
Have a nice day,

A wonderful compostion with a good frame. Good picture, just a bit unsharp makes it special. Well captured, greetings Albrecht

This knight is coming from nowhere! Very good composition and very dynamic.
I like the mood of your photograph.

Wow, a beautiful and timeless photo, Cessy. Had there been digital cameras in the 16th century, this is how I envision the "real scene" would have looked like ;-) Beautiful tones, nice effect with the light on the knight's armor, and good dynamic add from the dust on the ground.
MarekP (4750) 2005-06-15 15:58
Before I read your note, I thought it is an old painted portrait in a museum. You've got great colours, light and atmosphere in the shot. Congratulations! Well done!
bip-bip (1837) 2005-06-15 16:00
A very dynamic image
The light and tones are beautiful and I like the flying dust on the ground
you well captured this knight
PS Are you visiting France ?
sarju (5324) 2005-06-15 16:11
very good photo of the knight .... white horse and the black clothes of the knight really compliments each other ... my only question is about the fading effect in the photo mainly on the top left of the frame ... did you PP it or were the lighting conditions like that only
cheers .... sarju

Great picture of this knight coming towards us on his horse! The framing is well chosen, great piece of work! :-D
toni_al (15875) 2005-06-15 16:40
Superbe cadrage, on sens toute la force de l'action.
tontonjc (6623) 2005-06-15 16:53
Superbe mouvement et cadrage splendide . Une grande force dans cette photo.
Leonie (8809) 2005-06-15 19:35
Hi Cessy...nice shot! I love knights and stories of knights and I am a descendant of knights..lol...and I also am a good fencer..;o) This one looks a bit dark..but very brave..Thanks for sharing!
john_c (24666) 2005-06-15 21:29
Congratulations, Cessy. This is a first class contribution. The action is so well portrayed here - one can see and almost breathe the dust kicked up by the horse. There is great clarity to the scene and I just love the backdrop with the weathered but richly textured wood. Normally I dislike heavy frames, but in this case you have made an excellent choice with the black framing; it just suits the scene so well. Very well captured, Cessy. This is great work.
singuanti (15250) 2005-06-15 23:18
Hi Cessy. A great catch for sure. This shot has taken on a mystical appearance with the blur. Also the POV is great because it gives us the feeling we'll be in harms way if we stay there much longer. I really like it Cessy, good job!
jasmis (58334) 2005-06-16 3:14
Very impressive. Good DOF. Interesting theme.
Luan (12971) 2005-06-16 3:47
A great picture Cessy, this dark knight has been nicely portrayed. The picture is very sharp and clear, i like this kind of aura surrounding his armor..
cobraphil8 (84) 2005-06-16 7:19
Knight's magnificent photo, we would consider returned to the ancient times.
I like the movement of the horse and then which dress for the knight!
annie (396) 2005-06-16 9:34
THis image certainly made me take a second look and it was realy worth it, composition and timeing were excelent
Kenny10pin (19301) 2005-06-16 10:33
great shot of the horse, I like the blurred horseman, the sand kicking up from the ground is beautifully captured, well done
Stepan (27210) 2005-06-16 15:11
An incredible atmosphere, an incredible light...
A very beautiful picture (the black frame is a very good idea in that case !).
kozerog (1288) 2005-06-16 16:55
Super! Good moment and control of exposition.
ChrisJ (116676) 2005-06-17 3:55
A superb pov, with well managed dof, & okay sharpness. I like the dust, which conveys movement & dynamism. Bagus sekali!
dolin (7369) 2005-06-17 4:43
Waouhhhh beautifull shot.
I like this mouvment, very dynamic.
Perfect contrast with this white horse in this dark atmosphere.
Great compo !!!
(I come back for the smile)
yannick (1471) 2005-06-17 17:06
Il y a une vraie impression de puissance qui se dégage de cette photo. Le mouvement suggéré par la poussière, l'attitude du cheval et de son cavalier, et puis l'angle de vue bien sur. Les couleurs ont superbes, et le cadrage parfait. La lumière juste au bon endroit.C'est parfait
greg64g (11193) 2005-06-20 4:39
Well i missed many picture from you :-( sorry.
i love this one,what a beautiful mood of this, this picture coulbe be on a cinema publicity !
i love it
sayzey (2358) 2005-06-20 18:13
Wow! This is amazing! like most of the rest of your gallery! You have captured the action brilliantly, you can see the dust flying up and the background makes it look like he is running through a wood, althoguh I suspect it is just a gate!
cam (9043) 2005-06-22 19:42
Cessy,you did a masterpiece.
A very dramatic composition,coming out of the dark like this.
michalu (810) 2005-06-27 5:00
Cessy it is like back in time! Greate shot it is so alive! Beauty movement!
joseelias (0) 2005-08-03 9:10
Fantastic image. The somber and even menacing atmosphere fit perfectly the motive of the photo. The presence of the night and his horse is so strong that the centered position fits perfectly as it becomes balanced. This is also due to the darkening of the side of the images keeping the light only on the knight. Very good indeed.
broken_nail (190) 2007-11-10 2:51
beautiful light, beautiful colors and beautiful contrast...
Great decisive moment!
baladeva (252) 2009-06-07 22:31
very cinematic like, well captured as well as framed perfect.

Is this a medieval picture? (-;
Amphitrite (1720) 2009-08-28 10:44
