Ok, this is a departure from my usual type of thing. Taken at the opening night of the Chinese State Circus at Knutsford. Posted a forum thread recommending it - so the least I ought to do is upload one of my attempts.

This was taken at iso1600 (no flash permitted - go to the show and you'll understand why these guys don't want the distraction). Hence a little noisy. The lens was wide open, but there is still a little movement as the shutter speed reached a massive 1/100th! Still I was quite pleased I caught the moment of impact! Must put a fastr lens on the wish list...

Rgds,

Adam

Camera:EOS 5D
Lens:100-400 L

Adrian - I agree, but this guy was in a world of his own. Must of been when he bent the spears from the sharp end with his neck. Take anyone out of themself for a while just wondering - why?
