Must say had a little trouble with this one. I have a crap 300mm lens thatIused to use with myMinolta Dynax SLR non-digital. I can'twait to get my sigma 50-500mm next week. I needed to change my E/V here but it's not too bad. Good day out.

Now that's something completely different! THanks for changing it up on us.

I might suggest if you shoot another tourney you frame tighter on the torsos during the pass - it's the riders and the lance that are of import. I think you'll end up with a more powerful image if there's a tighter frame like that. Shots of horse and rider can be done when the pass first starts before the rider meets - you can then frame tight in portrait mode showing the horse movement and muscles. With the Bigma you shouldn't have any problems getting in tight to accomplish that type of framing. Just something to think about for the next tourney.

Still a good shot though, considering the conditions you were in. And it makes me wish I were still living in my old city which was about 40 minutes from a midieval faire going on right now. Ah well!

Thanks again for the post.

Thanks John. I might post 1 or 2 more and you can check those out. They really are a good day out.

I will try that again next year taking your suggestions very seriously :cool:
