Carnival 2008 #1

Yup, I'm back, back from my holiday which wasn't really a holiday in that I have come back a lot more exhausted than I left and also I found myself still working whilst away. So much for a tough economic situation.

I never really got to post many Notting Hill Carnival images this year. So here is a fun one from the event.

Just beautiful and she is just stunning!

Great to see something like this in B&W... most people would have chosen colour for this

Beautifully executed Jide!
Jide Alakija: Thanks E.
Lovely pic here. Top notch processing as usual. Your 5D must be getting jealous by now!
Jide Alakija: Not really! The 5D is now my studio and portrait camera, the 1d3 is my "pap" camera.

wow..im just seeing this.. love the colour tone...
Oh man, this shot is great. DOF is not entirely from the lens i suspect.. but you did a great job with the processing. Fine lighting and i love that smile.
Jide Alakija: DOF was Lens generated. In fact all i've done is played around with the exposure. I hardly ever play with DOF. Lighting as by external of camera flash.
