On my way to the Roman forum I chanced upon an international pageant of folk costumes from various countries around the world. I have no idea which country these costumes represent. The design and color look vaguely central American or Portuguese?

this is a beautiful presentation with gorgeous colours. i like the way you brought the subject close to the foreground such that we can see all the beautiful details of her costume and the floral headgear and also her lovely smile. very natural composition full of life.
thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

Une photo resplendissante et tous beaux à voir les costumes traditionnels plein de merveilleuses couleurs. C'était la joie à voir les participants souriants. Un photo de qualité et parfait rendu des détails et des couleurs. Encore plus beau en grand.
Passe une bonne fin de semaine,

Beautiful carnival scene well captured. I think it is a suit of Martinique, but I'm not sure. :)
Have a nice Week-end.

You have captured well the smiling expression of the woman. The point of view is showing the détails of her colourful costume. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

Hi Chris, It is really strange to see such costumes in Rome. Charming girl is smiling to you. I have no idea where they could come from. Probably Central America. lovely colours.

a not everyday scene,really colorful and very beautiful,
the folk costumes are eye catchers and the pol. filter creates an amazing blue sky!
thanks for sharing,

They certainly have a touch of the Spanish or Latin American about them. I like the way you have framed the shot with the ladies nicely spread across the image. You have managed the difficult light reasonably well whilst the colours are superb, as is the clarity.

this is a lovely, joyful picture. The vivid colours, the sunshine and the pose of the lovely lady smiling for you make this a delightful scene, attractive and vibrant. I wonder whether the costumes come from a Balkan country, Bulgaria maybe, but I can't be sure. Framing, depth and sharpness are superb and enhance the directness and naturalness of the scene. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

Enjoy the weekend - B.

Spectacular colors of those costumes. I guess there are more from South America than Europe. Anyway, fine scene.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-03-22 6:02
it was a little bit strange to see Italy as the location for this picture as the costumes definitely look more Latino to me :-) but then I read your note which explains it. Nevertheless the place, the colors of the outfits are fantastic and very eye catching.
Well spotted and nicely executed.
Thanks for sharing

Beautiful costumes and beautiful women! I would guess Portuguese or Spanish influence. Love the colors against the very blue sky. Sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Dear Chris
Quel joli portrait, une tenue très colorées, je l'image quand elle danse! cela doit être beau, tout comme son sourire et le regard vers toi :-)

Very beautiful colour
Very nice scene, the young girl seems to invite you for a dance

The costumes and their colors are beautiful. The composition is inviting. The deep blue of the sky is marvelous. One minor point is the darkness of the shadows. I see that you are using ViewNX 2. In its editor, you can adjust the highlights and the shadows separately (through the sliders called Highlight Protection and Shadow Protection). I will upload an alternate version that I lightened shadows in PE, I'd be interested to know what you think.
