Did I already say that I just love Paris in summer and its festivals around each week-end ? Yesterday, the Tropical Carnival took place between "Republique" and "Nation". Temperature was tropical, fitting perfectly the mood of the festive event.
For the 5th festival, about 40 charts were leading the marche, each of them embodied a specific culture or island : Guadeloupe, Martinique, Réunion, Guyane but also Jamaïca, Haiti and different countries from South America.
It was a great event celebrating mixity. Each character was kind enough to get photographied. Some of them even offered me some of the most beautiful smiles possible. Have a great summer !

The composition is superb - full of energy colours plus a lovely bokeh on her right. But maybe the bokeh of the left is overexposed and her face slightly too centered? But the dof and focus works fine and this pic conveys the atmosphere very well.

awesome colours steven. and really good saturation. i like the composition.
i agree with tcht about the bokeh in the background, but i think that your dof could have been a little wider to include her hand more cleanly. it's the only criticism i can make for this great picture. well done!

The picture pleases me very well. In the close screen window the important is contained. Additionally the colors and the friendly face animate the picture. Very beautifully. Greting, Wolfgang

Fantastic colours and tones, Steven.
Incredible details and a very interesting framing by red feathers.
What a great smile from Paris!

C'est un très joli pertrait, plein de couleurs et agréable à regarder. Très bon cadrage. J'aime beaucoup ces couleurs chatoyantes.
