Power Puff Girls

Very much using the same processing technique as yesterdays shot I thought I'd try another. This time a bit more modified and on darker subjects.

This is what I call true Paparazzi! These women can not be stopped. How many camera's can you count! I'll post the real answer at the end of the day.

This does not for me I am afraid to say. But there are about 8 cameras. Sorry Jide but I would have no interest in this.
Jide Alakija: I guess this type of photojournalism is not your thing. Don't worry there's more to come.

Jide Alakija: Cheers!

Met you at the Cuban Festival in London. Like what I see here and I am picking up a few pointers.

As for the picture at hand.....I will have to day 9 including your camera. You said count not see...so, I am going to go with 9.

I see 12
Great photojournalism shot, really impressive lighting too.

Re. Mocha!'s comment about the Cuban Festival in London... I was at this too taking a few shots. Maybe I've missed them, but I don't think you've posted any shots from it? I would love to see your interpretation of it.

Wonderful! Jide, I could kick myself for not coming back more often, but you know I like to spread myself about a bit.

This is a cracking shot with a beautiful composition, some humour and beautiful tones. Everyone who does it seems to get better black and whites than I'm able to achieve, and this is among the best.
July 30th and no answer yet. So what is it? I am gagging to know!

Haha, you're definitely right about that. I feel you'd find more women struggling to take and partake in photos than you'd find men. Whats that about?! Totally my element. : )
I find this stunning Jide - just so full of humanity and real(underlined) beauty. (...and I count eightsmile)
