Last week-end, the annual Venetian Carnival occured in Paris like each year. I was there last year too and I found this event so nice that I marked it on my calendar few months ago to get sure I would be there again. I was pretty surprised to see that there were no posting about this event this week so here is my contribution.
I believe there were even more people with costums this year. Many of them were really great with very nice attitude when wandering around. But the crowd was there together with the sun. It was not easy to shoot this week-end.
I liked this mysterious woman because we could see a part of her skin which made the costums even more natural and appealing.
I don't know if it was appropriate but I felt I needed to use the flash as a fill-in @ -2/3IL. No cropping, USM applied.

A well composed portrait with the subject to the right and the parasol filling the rest of the frame. I like the detail in the mask and the feathers. The masked person in the background gives the context of this as a festival.

Great shot. I like very much the composition, specially the umbrella to the left, which create a semi-abstract background and the mini-scene to the right, which give depth and a sense of what is going on. It is one of my dreams to go to Venice's Carnival, one of this days, soon!. Thank you for sharing,

Mince, je n'avais pas réalisé que c'était le week end dernier sinon je serais venu. Sais tu la date du prochain? Y avait il vraiment bcp de monde.
Beau fill in et belle texture sur l'ombrelle. L'ensemble est très réussi. Juste le/la touriste est arrière plan dont on se serait passé mais j'imagine qu'il n'y a pas trop le choix....

Superbe portrait de personne masquée pour l'occasion: J'aurais préféré toutefois que le gars nom masqué se trouvant là par malchance n'en fasse pas partie, : Peut-être pourrait-t-on l'éliminer par PS ?
