"Waves of sound overlapped in strangely harmonious dissonance as the duel raged on...."

I tried to show the excitement of a musical duel between Elves in the dynamic camera angle and clashing of colours.

Love the color and energy here. Though if I'm perfectly honest, I'm not sure what the red combatant's leg is doing but I think you succeeded in what you set out to capture.
