the french knight stands facing his own banner
he has raised the visor of his German helm
some said it was an honorable battle but he knew it wqasnt true,
after all his adversary didnt have a sword
was this really how he wanted to end a career of single combats
an unfair fight
the venetians would not accept this farce
...................................................
great stuff though
crazy respect for your art
and great scene

I get the impression that no matter who technically won, everyone lost. Great atmosphere and details.

Wow, this really inspires alot of emotions, at least to me.

The knight's posture, how he is standing back from his fallen foe and seems dignified as he pays his due respects to the priest giving out the last rights, seems appropriately solemn for this sort of event. The choice of location, which seems rather remote with the misty mountains in the background and the fog covered rocks in front, brings to mind the idea of how far away these two knights were in their final battle, and a bit of sorrow that the knight in red (I believe of the Lancaster side if my suspicions that this is or was inspired by the War of the Roses are accurate) that he has died so far away from home.

The well-dressed man to the left in gold-trimmed robes represents the political role in the conflict in my mind, and brings with it a the connotations of honorable soldiers being forced to do battle for causes far removed from their own realities. Where fighting in the streets may promote cheers and boos, and a duel in the courts give an impression of noble sport of a particularly bloody kind, his presence evokes the idea of war as being the burdens of policies of succession and treaties hammered out by distant courts and then brought to fruition on the backs of those below and presumably so far away as their suffering is inconsequential for those who make it happen.

Wow, that was so deep, Adele is rolling around in there XD

But what you say is true, this painting does evoke feelings in you. I love the solemn atmosphere.
Though it's open to interpretation, yours was nice :)

Very well done. I agree that a little more back story would be nice, only because the scene is so powerful and well done. It makes me want to find out more about the story. Most pictures of this type are simply scenes. They are good, but the image is enough. This goes well beyond that and makes the viewer interested in the story.

I'm curious about the scene. Is this a duel between two knights.
