The fighting shadows

We had the opportunity to witness (and of course, to photograph too) a cock-fighting demonstration at Bedulu village, Bali. Even though it was a tame version of the banned cock-fighting of Bali, it was still an unforgettable experience to those who were witnessing it for the first time. The cockerels were not harmed during this session and there was none of the usual betting. I have witness an actual cock-fighting before and boy, was it gory!

For this shot, I was standing on a cement slab and at an oblique angle while the rest of the participants were taking shots face-on. I was actually trying to capture the shadows. Used my trusty 24mm/1.4 for this.

By the way, to all of you who have subscribed to my posts, there seems to be some problems with the automatic notifications by the plug-in I am using. I am looking into this and hope to rectify it as soon as I can. Thanks for your patience. 😉
