Really nice colourfull mask. The quality (sharpness, colours, details) is really good, but maybe you cropped a bit too tigh. Anyway: well done!

Very nice and sharp picture of a mask. Red & Black & Gold is a beautiful combination and gives it a warm sence

Hi Anna. I love Venice and this brings back memories of going to carnival for the first time this year.
You have a very powerful image with its high contrast and the red backing to the mask.
I think this power is supported by the close cropping, so don't think it's too close. If power and menace is what you're trying to convey in this shot, a lower POV would make this even more prominent as the viewer would feel looked down upon by the mask, i.e. the viewer is inferior so the mask looks more dominant.
By the way, do you add your shots to Themes? You might consider adding this to the Venetian Carnival theme.
