This is just one of the photos I took while attending the Norwegian kendo championships 2007 in Mandal in southern Norway.
Kendo is still a rather "unknown" martial art here in Norway, so being able to attend the championships is a rare honor for me.
I stood by the ring and the competitors the entire weekend, and if the shutter on my camera could glow red hot it would.
I'm still sorting the photos...one whole week after coming home.
Well, this is the best moment I came over during this look through the list of photos.
I'm not completely sure who these two competiors where, but I'm sure those involved with the Norwegian Kendo Federation will know.
I haven't done anything with the photo, simply applied autolevels to make the light less yellow-ish. (Light conditions were horrible!)
So please excuse the bad resolution and grain, ISO setting was 800 due to the horrible light.
