    Awesome shots :) one of the same riders there that was at a festival here in Canada over the summer.

    These are fantastic shots & I feel for the two riders, but then again, they put themselves up for it! :rolleyes:

    I hope you don't mind me adding this, but I got a fluke shot some years ago (using a Fuji zoom P&S camera in 2005) that I've not been able to repeat yet (not that I've been many times & got the best position for it either since).
    This was at Ironfest in Lithgow, west of the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney (NSW).
    The triumphant jouster was a women getting the man in the head. I wonder if there were words afterwards, but you might not notice that the other rider was having a good laugh though.

    LOL...no Nikon on this day! These joust shots were with the EM1 and Oly 40-150/2.8.

    I ran a double kit, including the EM5 Mk II w/ grip and the 12-40 on it.
    I knew we were going to get some rain and it gets rather dusty. So I went with an all weather sealed load out.
