Carnival 2005 #6 : Fat boy slim

....nothing to put up. Well I have a few images I just don't know how to process them. I looked through my archive to gain some inspiration and nope, they didn't help either, I can't see what I liked about the shots I took in the past. I think I've reached that part where I'm seeking some more challenges in photography, not to say I've mastered these ones already.

Anyway this was one from the carnival, make it what you want to. Skee and I quite enjoyed the site.

Almost hard to see, but the guy's smile in the back hidden behind the blurred leaves is so sweet!! Laurie complained about lack of eye-candy...well, the guy in the back with the great smile is sweet enough for me. You just focused in on the wrong fellas. ;o)

jide he doesn't look fast buy it looks like some serious artwork on his hands. i think you took the shot because there was a barrier between him and you. nice candid
nice capture. dude does not even know he is internet celebrity now
Man, this shot is so good!.. :^)
Very nice processing too!
there is a very popular video called slam by a guy called pendulum.the fat guy in the pic reminds me of the fat guy dancing in the video
Jide Alakija: LOL...I must find this video you speak of.
