This is good - you've isolated two faces in the scrum, and even got their weapons in the frame. Not easy in an event like this. It looks a good way for retired civil servants and bus drivers to get rid of pent-up aggression without actually being a danger to the public.

Love this "action" shot. The one on the right actually looks like he's coming right at you. Wonderful!

A very nice line running through this shot Albert. It's also very nicely focused as I guess they were rushing at speed.
Great camera work

Great action shot with wonderful expressions. Didn't the Kelts go into battle naked and painted blue, or am I mixing things up? Wink
