Poor Image: Sword Fight get usage counts

Now, don't get me wrong, Luke vs. Vader is one of the iconic sword fights of our generation. It's a good example, but the quality on the image is abysmal.

If nothing else, this image can be put in Image Links for Blade Lock, but I wanted to get your opinions on this possibility:

I will admit that it almost certainly needs to be brightened somewhat, but I'm not sure how to go about doing so.

I can't GIS right now, but the two things that immediately come to mind are anything from Errol Flynn's swashbuckler movies and the Inigo/Black Pirate fight from The Princess Bride.
serial tweaker, sorry
I really want insult swordfighting from one of the Monkey Island games, but the original suggestion is good too. Here, I brightened it a little: Suggestion from OP

From Secret (and Secret SE): [1] [2]

I'll get a few from Curse in just a little while.

Whenever I look to the right, left and then to the right again before crossing a road, I'm also looking for bigfoots crossing that road.

Pirates, hands down.

It doesn't even need cropping.

A couple more votes for the Pirates pic and we can stick it.

Slight preference for the darker version of Pirates.
"Existential Despair" is an oxymoron.

Here's the lighter version of the Pirates pic...I think I prefer the darker one.

Prefer the darker of the two. Doesn't exactly look like the right colors, while the lighter one's closer - but the darker one has the swords much more visible, which, since the dark version is acceptable in quality, is more important in my eyes.

Prefer darker version. Much as I like my original suggestion, I do like pirates just a bit more.

Another vote for Pirates. Another vote for darker version.

That version is now up, potholed, and tagged. Current caption is kept from the old image — "En garde.". I've stuffed the Image Links page with suggestions from this thread and the Luke vs Vader image. Are we done here, or do we want a different caption?

Nah, I think we're done. Locking up.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
