Shot at the Maryland Renaissance Festival in Crownsville, MD.

A great shattered lance, in perfect light, and I didn't screw up .

This was shot at 300mm. The image is cropped only slightly in the vertical. Very tight. Really tight, but this year I wanted to do something different.

I've shot 96 passes so far this year, this being by far the best frame. The weekend of Oct 20-21 is the annual jousting championship, where they will run 64 passes a day for the two days, plus a private session Friday night with 16 additional passes.

D700 300mm f/2.8 AFSII
f/5.6 1/2000s ISO 200
