Carnival 2006 #4 : The trolls #2

Was asked by Sinem yesterday to put up another shot from the Carnival. I actually thought that these were getting rather boring so I went out today to get some new material. I'll start posting them from tomorrow.

Not much to say here. Hope you are enjoying my colour work on these photos so far. What do you think about this shot?

An interesting picture. The carnival must have been a very colourful event.

Quite colourful jide smile
Was at the carnival too but on Sunday only. Much crisper shot than mine. Nicely framed too. A lot of colour though.Should load some of mine up if i think it meets the mark
hey jide,

great capture...i really like the pose of the woman in the foreground and the way that you included the other women in the background. the colors are amazing....crisp and vivid.
Amazing colors as always!! Unbelievably crisp and clear! And I love the look on her face and her expression. Great capture!

All of a sudden I'm starting to like these carnival shots more and more (well, can Sinem ever be wrong?)...love the expression, colour and the dof...8.5/10
Great capture... Beautiful mood, nice use of DOF!

I really love the vivid colours here, DOF is sweeeet. Makes the shot even more interesting, shame about that woman on the right, would have loved for her to be in the shot but you can't always have things your way sad.

My favourite shot of the series, it just hits all the right buttons in Subtsre town.

This is such a cute shot. I really love the moment that you capture- the lady looking very much like a dolly.

Keep it up keep it up!

She looks like a marionette (puppet), guess that what she intended.

The colour, the light! How fab. And I think she's doing the robot. Also like the the almost facial symmatry of the two ladies behind.

There is absolutely nothing to quibble with this photo, it's really crisp well framed and the colours are great. Even if you had only come away with one good photo of the day and this was it then the trip was worth it. Great shot

Love the colors here...I still think these dancers drew the short straw in terms of their costumes...they crack me up. Love it though!

I gotta get a pair of striped socks like that...I had several pairs like that in High School.

I love carnivals and festivals and this is a fantastic shot. Lovely colour harmony and the focus on the central figure is wonderful.
