    Laugh! it's Carnival! please post your carnival pictures here

    dear all
    I would like to see a lot of pictures of carnival coming from all over the world! and you?
    Starting a new thread, as usual, I list some guide lines....
    but in my region we usually say: "a carnevale ogni scherzo vale" that means "During Carnival every jokes is valid!"
    so, no rules, only follow the subject!
    Please join numerous, in order to create a coloured and funny atmosphere!
    Obvously any kind of C&C are welcome! (and valid)
    have a nice carnival
    Nicola

    We have Sydney's Carnival coming up so I will be out with the camera no doubt. I will put them here when I get them.
    Loving shot number 1 Martyn. The light on the eyes does the trick.

    a much tighter crop from the top and a bit from the left will put her face on a thirds crosspoint and make her the centre of attention, cheers martyn

    Hi Nicola,

    How's this?
    Laugh! it's Carnival!  please post your carnival pictures here

    Unfortunately, the much tighter crop reveals the subject's movement (shot at 1/160s, f/5 and iso400)

    I did do a bit of extra desaturation and dodging to reduce impact of extraneous picture elements that didn't aid the composition I created in cropping.

    Cheers,

    Hi Martyn,

    Yours are great, the only 'unfortunate' thing I see is the "black tongue" on #3 of post #5 ... and now I have said it ....

    Mothers - I would warn your children against going to Nottingham on Friday evenings. Looks a very odd place! In Glenfarg we just take our tractors to the pub and drink whisky. It doesn't make you glow.... Well, not like this anyway!
