Interesting portrait with an original make up, :))
Very well captured, good lighting. I like the original pads, I guess they belong to the armor
Have a nice Sunday

Toujours intéressants à voir ces festivals. Ce chevalier est bien présenté et le bel éclairage nous le montre bien avec son beau maquillage. Pour l'armure à part les épaules, Pour la protection, ce n'est pas fort. Une belle présentation de qualité.
Amitiés et bon dimanche,

Great costumed Renaissance character, blending body paint with shielded armor.
I believe America's Renaissance festivals are greater and more enjoyable than Halloween, plus they can occur year round.

Good capture of the body painted warrior at the Age of Chivalry Renaissance Festival in Las Vegas. I like the shallow dof and direct gaze of the man. Sharpness & shadow detail are superb. Vibrant colour and saturation. Looks like a prototype of Tranformers! Have a great Sunday!

That's beefy warrior and fantastic characters with sharp eyes looking into your lens Eleu but pleasant to look. There's a great light on the features and the detail in this shot is exquisite and exposure are perfect as is your choice of bg. Colours are great too, a standout shot, well taken with excellent dof. Congrats

quite a different subject and style, in your gallery.
i could say, this might be a roman pilot getting ready for a dragon flight :) the eye contact is impressive, and it is good that you also gave the lively details around.

It looks like I am falling behind in following your uploads. So, I am going to hop among the most attractive ones.
What I find most pleasing about this photo is the perfectly-in-focus figure of this legendary warrior against the blurry background of vendors (I think that's what they are!). The other intriguing feature are the eyes: In all that Renaissance mud, we see unnaturally colored eyes, which must come from colored contact lenses - a curious contrast between the old and the new!
TFS & Regards,
