Pikeman of the Sealed Knot

By jasonrwl
Thank you for your votes and comments on the image from Naeroysfjord.

Went to the Holly Holy Day yesterday in Nantwich which commemorates the Civil War Battle of Nantwich. Unfortunately it was disrupted by an unholy storm as the soldiers paraded in the square with first rain and then lightning and hail leaving the ground about an inch deep in hail stones. The light almost completely disappeared. I am afraid we didn't stay for the battle re-enactment and I don't know if it actually went ahead.

v2 is the colour version.

Thanks for looking

Excellent portrait, focus and determination, Jason. Excellent detail and very well processed, definitely the mono for me, suits the subject, you have handled the light around the eyes under the brimmed helmet very well.

Yes it went ahead and what a storm

Surprisingly for me (I'm a bit of a philistine when it comes to B&W) I like V1 the best of these two. Excellent portrait. I especially like his beeny peeking out under his helmet (bit of comfort needed with that thing on your head I imagine)!

Intense and nicely exposed, Jason. The mono focuses on the expression without the distraction of colour.

So sad to hear about the interruption --the storm. This one image is superb in both versions-- More would be nice-- another year!
