These were all shot from behind the ropes, so I can't get as close and intense as Darkmere's brilliant shots.

There great mate.!!
I was behind the ropes too but ive a 70-300mm VR lens on my D300 so I can get really close.
I steped up from my Slr to a Dslr last month and its make all the difference.

I was using a DSLR too (Minolta, also with 70-300mm zoom from the film era, so that would be equivalent to about 450mm on digital). Perhaps it was just that the battle fighting was closer to the ropes than the skirmish fighting I shot. More than half my good fighting shots are blocked by some skirmisher standing around idly watching the bill-blocks clashing.

You've got a good one of me leading a line into the fray - it's very rare I actually see myself on battle photos. But still the only one of me actually in action is the Battle of Tewkesbury postcard - along with about 249 other combatants!

Some excellent pictures of the event on the Blore heath website www.bloreheath.org.

Alot of superb individual portraits, which capture many of the contributors to this forum. (Alas with the exception of my goodself, I appear to have been wearing my invisibility cloak - I don't figure in any of them). Alot of good kit, with occassional exceptions - noticeably the rust bucket in picture 16/17. A really good set of photo's which capture the spirit of the event.

Buckets "piece de resistance" also appears to have been captured on film.

Bad news - no matter how successful your diet, you'll look just the same till you buy or borrow a different breast and back! :D
