By Sabreur
Following on from Tuesday's upload, here is a wider shot of the same match. Again a slow shutter speed to try and show some of the movement.

For anyone who doesn't know anything about fencing, this is a sabre fight. The target is verything above the waist (excluding the hands) - you can see in the picture the metallic jackets that the fencers wear to allow the scoring equipment to detect hits. In sabre you can hit any part of the blade.

This demonstration took place in the Long Gallery at Nottingham Castle - hence the paintings on the wall.

The variant show another image from a few seconds later - another slow shutter speed and a similar conversion to balck and white.

Wonderful images full of breathless energy and excitement. The excellent black & white adds to the atmosphere.

Like the use of the slow shutter speed in this, work well.

just found this as I was looking at your p/f after you joined the grumpies.
I really like this; it gives a real sense of movement & dynamism but is not so blurred that you can't see what is happening. I think V2 is a bit too blurred.
