I'm so glad you kept at it until you got the perfect shot. You can feel the energy in this photo. Thank you Armand.
Amazing photo! Everything in this photo makes it perfect...the smoke stains on the wall, the extra weapons in the background, the peaceful shadow on the floor, the blurring sword ready to strike, the look of determination on the fighters face! Wonderful! Lucky you had that strap to get you into the VIP section. Great job!!
That is a really cool picture, the sports in India look much more violent. Is that a very popular sport there?
This is an extraordinary shot of the to performers and I must say that you capturing them in midair just made it amazing, also I agree about how the lighting makes the shot even more amazing.
AMAZING photo. favorite part is how they are in the air fighting instead of on the ground. I wonder how they can stay in the air for so long?
Really cool photo I really like how you got the shot while they were jumping. What is that shinny thing in the background?
This is a cool photothat the both man are fighting each other.Also the background is full of weapon.
This photo is really awesome there photo is really cool fighting with swords and jumping up and down.
This picture is like a movie scene.Are they really fighting or pretending to hit each other with swords.
What are the little shining spots in the background? It is cool how he got the people in midair! The man that is farther away has a swirly looking shadow. GREAT photo!
Wow are the swords real or fake and are they fighting till the death anyway this is an Awesome photo.
This picture is really cool! I really like how you got the fighters in midair. It's awesome how you got their shadows too.
This is a really cool pic because they are jumping and fighting with swords. You can't see his other leg.
one can just feel the energy and hear the clash of metal! spellbinding! and last but not least, compliments to armand poblete on your photo gallery.. such a wide spectrum of moods and subjects, but somehow all with a unique "cutting edge" .
Perseverance pays in photography! Thank for sharing the process. I enjoyed your re-tell. The photo is fantastic. I like that diagonal line plus the shadow of the fighter. So many great things about this shot.
@Tabitha Sage Yeah that's really cool how they used candles.
@Mallory K I really enjoyed that to
@Ramsay Nike there not the photographer just snapped a shot of them in midair.
@journee journee I think the swords are real, and hopefully they aren't fighting till death. That would be scary.
@matthew s. that is so cool, I never saw it that way.
@matthew s. It does look like that
