That is a nice shot focusing the Gada…

Bien fait ce portrait sportif.
Well done for choosing to focus on the Gada !
Great click. super Like.
Nice intense shot!
good to see the gada art still so alive!
Wonderful action shot , I like your DOF on this shot , Phil
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Love the way you always get the intense expression!!
Gorgeous! Big like!;)
I’ve seen some gada with very large mace heads. I have yet to hold one though. I imagine they are heavy, hence the skill required to actually use them successfully in actual combat. Otherwise it could be the equivalent to taking a 10lb long-arm sledgehammer into a fast-pace sabre duel.
Wow. Too good.
The photo looks so alive and real ..
The best about the image is its innocence and skill display.
Thanks Josh, for sharing the image. Thanks a lot.
One whack with that and it’d be all over, I’m sure. Well done, Joshi!
oh ilme fait penser à un personnage gallo-romain
Another wonderful shot!
only a person passionate about photography can see the extraordinary in the ordinary
U r true passionate…Stay blessed…and yes, amazing photograph…great piece of work…!!!!
Amazing click buddy :)
Nice pic. not comman and can feel the force of the gada in pic.
The ancient martial arts of India. Nice pic
Another nice one Joshi
He is very, very fit. I guess the training works. A nice photo for him to
rememerb what work he did on his body if he decides to stop.
Great photo, as always, you never disappoint. Thanks for posting.
Love the DOF and selective focus on the gada.
I am seriously blown away by this Indian Martial art form, Kalaripayattu. I had always seen them fighting with sword, spear, shield, Trishule etc. Now i know they use Gada as well. Seeing the players swinging in air and attacking the opponents is a visual treat. very artistic picture Daniel.
Nice capture! : )
Wonderful selective focus.
Great shot indeed…. You have captured the full expression….
another great one !
concentration is so intense, I am more scared of the person wielding the gada then gada itself!
Beauty, love the sharpness of the weapon.
Superb shot Joshi! Love the sharp gada and softer background!
Very nice lighting and composition!
Another lovely photo! Bravo!
Beautiful shot Joshi :) love the depth of field and the lighting. Did you light this or was it shot in available light, either way very nice work.
The short captures the intense focus of the martial artist
Great shot Joshi! Not sure why but feel its got a 3-D effect to it! Very cool though! :-)
Well executed. I like the focus on the wooden weapon without too much loss of detail on the trainee.
Lovely composition with focus spot on.
Fear my hammer!
Beautiful composition! Love this attitude.
Have a nice day.
Very nice, the depth of field you used is perfect…really makes the shot!
Excellent shot. Kalarippayattu is the mother of martial arts and we need to popularize this martial art form.
Love your blog ! See this too:

Very Cool Shot josh!
Excellent … as always.
that looks like it could do serious damage! :)
Beautiful! And great blog!
Love this art form
