Beautiful shot, very frightening too. I love the colours, being slightly sepia toned.

amazing transitional armors :D

And the pic too is cool, with this perspective and the light between "the profession of arms" and "band of brothers" :)

amazing photo!!! can i ask which method do you use to these colors?
Nivelis's avatar
It was few methods, colors are very important to me so I spend much time to adjust evrything to my vision. I used Lightroom
metehansirin's avatar
u'r skills are amazing!can i ask are u using photoshop for killing background?
Nivelis's avatar
thanks. Yes I use sometimes PS, but I prefer working in Lightroom. In few photos I was changing background, but only when its really needed for better effect. In this photo I blurred bg for better overall look. Now I try to make interesting result by using lenses with good light (f1.4-f2.0), you can check what they can do - sigma 50mm f1.4 [link] canon 135mm f2.0 [link] canon 85mm f1.8 [link] - I love them! :)

Wicked cool! That looks like a crazy amount of fun. Fun aside, the picture is a great action shot and I like how you are able to capture the shine of the armor without getting a glare. Very neat!
Nivelis's avatar
it's only good when it's fun, sadly it wasn't 600 years ago. Now we can keep memories alive in positive way
LupusAcerbus's avatar
Oh no, 600 years ago at the actual battle of Grunwald would not be somewhere I would have wanted to be - despite some epic displays of heroism - but the full-go reenacting looks like an awesome time. ;)

Really impressive shot.

Great picture; I hope the fighter on the bottom got his head back before that hand-and-a half sword came down.

Hope the fighter at the bottom got his head back up before that sword came down.

One of the best pictures I've seen of modern armored combat.
