I really enjoyed using the cast shadow to help create focus via the silhouette of the Knight against the Dragon. The composition features a big X for a change, along with a few triangles thrown in.

The classic confrontation. Hero vs Monster. Man against Beast. A Knight's quest to slay a Dragon.

Really nice picture.
Medieval scenery.
Nice detailed armor, weapons, accessories, scales, defence walls, fire, smoke.
Even some blurred panicking crowd trying to flee looking for a safe spot. (And two guards looking what the hell is going on.)

And a cute big red dragon helping the armsman to straighten and resharpen his sword. :laughing:
:+fav: :+devwatch:

(AmBr0's journal sent me to this battle.)
This is a great action scene!

Woah, never seen this one before.  That is one sweet dragon. But the knight better hope he's got a shield of fire resist. And a good burn ward at he local apothecary.

Apart from the general technical excellence, I love the way you've used colour to reinforce the fore, middle and background.
