And duel 137 is done as well..
This one I personal watched with a lot of humor.
Not only the work is very close, also the duelers!
I could name this duel also the "Brother" duel.
Yes two brothers did have a family duel here at Benno's, hahahaha
The winner of this duel is Enrico (Hippie), so congrats on your first duel
I guess more will folow now.
And sorry to say you lost Andres (mr. Andrea) do I hear a rematch coming?
About both paintwork... Fantastic a hard choice to make!
Also so cool the rider was white or black, really well done both.
A very high quality work you both done here.

Thanks for dueling here (I hope it was as much fun for you as it was for me)
This is where dueling is about, fun and surprise the other with your entry.

Hurray for the both of you guys!!!

It's been fun indeed. :thumbup: My brother and I kept on teasing each other since first vote. And I think the voting trend mirror history: Carthage had a great start leaving Rome behind by many votes (1st Punic war); then Rome awakened, regained virtus and pace, and overtook Carthage by few votes (2nd Punic war). The end was just total defeat: Carthago delenda est! (3rd Punic war).

Absolutely! My honour needs revenge. I cannot let that "drybrusher" of Hippie winning so easy!! :tongue: :tongue: I smell gladiators in the air. Morituri te salutant.

For the record: out of the over 470 views of the duel, I am sure 400 is just me and Hippie, which gives an idea of how intense was our teasing :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Both are great entries! Although similar, Andrea's photos had too much of a yellow hue to them. This is common with artificial lights (which give a yellow light, opposed to natural light which is white). Try photographing them in daylight or alter the photos in photoshop to get rid of the yellowish hue. Or ask your brother how he did it. :lol: :-D

Great Duel this one,and between two Brothers.I wonder if they are both sporting black eyes today.
Only Funning! I`m very glad I voted on this one. I agree about the yellow,and yes natural daylight is best.
Along with other stuff being shown,It`s really nice to have Benno back on his Forum.BB

Congrats to you both on some exquisite work. Another hard choice for these old eyes, but a lot of fun to look at.
