Norway Kendo Championships 1 by dragonslayero Norway Kendo Championships 1 by dragonslayero
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.

Well, enjoy...

Nah... not too much power there so it should be fine.
But... not exactly something that is worthy of points or a raised flag.

Many thanks for the opinion.
It's quite some time since I shot this photo, and I should be able to get better photos now, but for the past two years my main focus has been to participate. And bringing my photobag sort of makes everything more difficult.
I am considering getting more shots to work with.

Anyway, many thanks for the opinion.

Picture taken at a school in Tokyo...
Så med mindre du er på skole i Tateichi distriktet i Tokyo så tviler jeg på at det er samme skolen, men det kan godt hende det ligner! :D
For din info, det er denne skolen ---> 35.741409,139.8443
Legg koordinatene inn i Google så sender den deg til rett plass. Gymsalen er til høyre :)
