is a characteristic of a person, animal, place, object, or idea that provides a perceptual experience of pleasure or satisfaction.
An "ideal beauty" is an entity which is admired, or possesses features widely attributed to beauty in a particular culture, for perfection.
The experience of "beauty"
often involves the interpretation of some entity as being in balance and harmony with nature, which may lead to feelings of attraction and emotional well-being.
The characterization of a person as “beautiful”, whether on an individual basis or by community consensus, is often based on some combination of inner beauty, which includes psychological factors such as personality, intelligence, grace, politeness, charisma, integrity, congruence and elegance, and outer beauty (i.e. physical attractiveness) which includes physical attributes which are valued on aesthetic basis. - Wikipedia
Carnival in Cologne
the number of visitors is supposed to be about 1 million
It is a hard job, taking photos in a crowd...
To the left, to the right, in front of you, and behind you a lot of people, moving and touching you, when you try to focus on the subject. Hard to get a good shot...

interesting portrait that retains a part of mystery. But I guess this was what you were aiming for!

The experience of "beauty" is for every man or woman different.
Your picture is nice and very modern of conception, not the tradional image of everyday.
Wonderful picture made with high quality.
Very well done, TFS.

Hard to get a good shot, yet not impossible, as you prove here. An intriguing portrait with great, vivid colours. Well done!

An original shot with intrigue. The colour of the hat really makes this especially how it contrasts with the red lips of the woman and her grey scarf. i like this image a lot.

I think it is great that you only show the face partially of this lady and the rest of how she appears is left to our imaginations. Love the way she is framed by the purple hat and scarf and this frames the red lips which stand out too. A nice idea for a different kind of portrait.

excellent capture, very artistic. I like the tight crop and eye-catching colors that made me think of a carnival before I read your note. It could be a great shot for a fashion magazine, there's something mannequin-like in this frozen capture.
