This is another photo shot at the Luzern Carnival - Luzerner Fasnacht 2013.
All the city was flooded with people wearing various carnival costumes. I did not have the time to photograph all whom I saw while walking about the city. But at least I managed to capture some of them :-)
The little princess whom you see in my photo looked pleasantly surprised when she saw me taking a photo of her.
I was standing rather close to them while they were passing but, unfortunately, I saw them too late when I turned round (I was shooting some other members of the carnival at that moment), so I managed to shoot only 1 photo.
Actually, I was amazed at people’s friendly attitude and their willingness to pose to photographers (to me, in particular).

I would actually be surprised if people all dressed up for a festival wouldn't willingly pose for photos. This little Princess is very pretty but her "father" is rather ugly. They are both very nicely dressed though, and their colours would brighten any dull day in February. This may have been a quick shot but it was well managed.

i really like festivals. Especially colorful festivals like this, when people dress themself in colorful costumes. You have a very good eyecontact with this cute princess. I guess most girls love to be or dress like a princess:)
Sharp and clear shot and a good contribution for TE.

don't know how about surprise, it's just my impression from your shot... but she's looking at you in such a casual family way as if saying "Hi there, Mom! We'll go eat some ice-cream as soon as I'm done with it...":)
Lovely photo, of course.. and it must have been great fun to see that procession in person.
