Same place as yesterday, ie the Arsenal of the Bastille place in Paris. I liked very much the mysterious attitudes the characters took all the way along the canal. Next event, April 2005.
Many people asked me for a closer shot yesterday so this time I used :
- 420 mm focal,
- my new Flash Metz 44 AF-4N
Original framing. I resized the picture, adjusted the color balance then desaturated a little bit then applied the unsharp mask.

Nice tight dynamic crop Steven and the eyes are very alluring (I think I would have brightened them a touch).

Magnifique ! Cela mérite de paraitre dans la presse.
Le cadrage est parfait, très bonne netteté et les couleurs sont en harmonie.

GREAT shot! The DOF is what makes this shot doubly engaging. It truly is a magical momnet and the glitter all the more make it as such. Congratulations to this beautiful capture!

Wow, what colors and textures. The eye contact adds a lot of life too it. Well done!

The muted background colours suit this costume perfectly. The DoF and cropping are both very good. Very well captured. I especially like the netting over the eyes and the fact that we can still see them clearly.

Great shot I love the detail of the eyes, and the masks detail is super very mysterious and very antique-y. The colour contrast of blue and gold is very good, adding an element of wealth and richness to the image.
I am a big fan of street workers, performers and festivals and this shot is a very good example of what I like.
Have a good day
See what you think of my street shots from Paris.
