Very unusual night shot with the statue lit in blue. I also like the WS which you presumably took earlier before it got so dark. I like both equally. It must have been a difficult choice which to have as your main post.

Salut Joël,
I heard about that competition but never saw any capture or movie, now I get a better idea. Strong and powerful composition, well enlighted and sharp. The blue from the light works well and as Kath I like the workshops too.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Hello Joël,

Very difficult for take but you did this very lovely with the blue "Le Jouteur" as real eye catcher.
Also the lanterns in background care for a excellent contrast against the black background.
Very well done, thanks for sharing.

Have a nice weekend,
John.

Hello Joel,
I remember seeing the jousting in Sete some twenty years ago, a very interesting spectacle. Your picture of this statue is none the less so. Excellent point of view and very good clarity. The exposure is well managed and the tones good. Nice work.

Bonjour

photo très sobre avec ce contraste de noir et de bleu de la statue du jouteur, et un bon cadrage avec les lumières autour
Celà ne doit pas être facile, mais on voit le résultat final qui est une bonne réalisation
bon dimanche
juliette

Salut Joel
Une très belle réalisation nocturne avec de belles couleurs et un format carré qui fonctionne bien sur cette statue. Une bel hommage au sport local!!
Amicalement

Bonjour joel,

Tres belle image où la couleur bleue de ce jouteur ressort tres bien. Il y a aussi des joutes pas loin de chez moi, sur le Rhône.
Pour concentrer sur celui-ci, j'ai fait un petit WS dans la verticale.

Tres bon Week-end,

Thierry

Bonjour Joel,

Hello Joel,
Very impressive night shot!The handle of light in my opinion gives most of the beauty to this composition.Very fitting square frame also!
Greetings,
Thomas

Bonsoir Joël
Beau cliché nocturne avec une bonne gestion de la lumière et cette statue bleutée qui capte bien le regard.
Merci pour le partage et bonne soirée.
Nicole

Bonsoir Joel
Excellente prise nocturne de cette statue avec beaucoup de classe dans ce jeu de couleurs.Le WS est superbe aussi
Le recadrage vertical de Thierry est plus classique mais fonctionne assez bien
Amitiés

Bonsoir Joel,
Très belle image nocturne avec une lumière parfaitement maîtrisée.
Dans la compo, le jouteur est peut-être un poil trop centré, mais là, je "pinaille".
Bon dimanche et amitiés.

Salut Joel,
Un fond sombre qui fait resortir merveilleusement la statue bleu, entourer d'un jeu de lumiére rond et étoilée, belle présentation
Passe un beau dimanche

Bonne soirée.

Salut Joël
Une nocturne très bien équilibrée au niveaux des lumières.
J'apprécie beaucoup.
Cordialement.

Salut Joel
this is a brand new statue but it is rich in terms of meaning. I believe you could have taken this photo from several meters behind, this is too close

I like how you framed it and the details. Very good colours and light.nadir

Bonjour!
What a stange monument here! It reminds me about Soviet monuments like "Girl with an oar" or "Working woman", huge amount of which were standed near stadiums, other sport objects, sanatoriums, etc..
Very well-taken shot with unusual and interesting lightness.
Regards from Russia, Igor

Bonjour Joel,
A unique post with the blue light ray on the statue, and yellow bulb-glare on street-lamps on BG.
Contrast onto the black sky is perfect.
Fine shot at night.
Ike
