Continue with the "Purim" carnival, two pictures of a drummer ( one WS). A group of 5 drummers marched along, but this guy had the most attractive costume.
Took tthis photo through a crowd gathering around, not such an easy task - had to crop side's.

Il a le look ce joueur de tambour avec sa veste rouge qui flashe, sa barbe noir, son chapeau , ces lunettes et même ces cheveux, un portrait d'ambiance bien capturer, il ne manque plus que le son!!! belle complémentaire en WS

Well, the red is certainly an eye-catching color, and there's no shortage of it contained within this framework. It's not overpowering though, I think you chose a fine subject that boldly represents the expression. Great depth of field too, sharp focus with plenty of background detail to still be enjoyed without becoming a distraction and stealing focus from the drummer. Bright, lively and full of energy...I'm sure this is fun for all! Enjoy the new day. All the best.

You're capturing well this drummer in carnival by a good macro and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the drummer with beard who wears showy red costume and long black hat. We can see his global image in WS.

I could be a smart Alec and add, "a face only a mother could love" but I won't! (Wait a minute, didn't I just say it?)
I like the eye-catching red and the use of selective focus.

You have captured well the concentration of the drummer. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of his uniform. The good luminosity is making the colours to shine. Have a nice day.

I'm sorry for not being clear yesterday about my opinion for this picture. My view is totally subjective and when I saw that lovely photo from Lucca spontaneously decided to comment on that instead. My subjective objection is that, since this gentleman is a drummer, I'd like to see his drum and hands included in the frame. I like very much the colours and the sense of action but the drum is absent and, instead of his hands and sticks, we see those of someone else. For this reason I prefer the photo in the workshop as a portrait but this one has a less busy backdrop that sets the drummer off better. He surely was moving constantly and was extremely difficult to capture among the crowd, a very challenging subject. Lucca was so elegant, calm and neat:) Well done for your persistence and fine efforts to capture a portrait of him! Thank you and I'm sorry again for not expressing my thoughts clearly.
All the best, have a lovely evening,

Awesome colors and tone in this image of the drummer with good lighting in broad daylights.Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Nicely captured carnival performer in good light, nice colors. IMO, nice action snapshot, well arranged in portrait format.
Very well done.
ChrisJ (105419) 2014-03-21 10:25
Striking warm cold colour contrasts between the red and blue with good sharpness and excellent use of a shallow dof. The drumstick frames the central character's face. Well composed with adequate breathing space for the top of the hat. Tfs!
fritzi007 (9119) 2014-03-21 12:30
done very well in spite of difficult conditions, congratulations!
nikkitta (17018) 2014-03-21 15:50
So funny to watch your captures of people, here the red is eye catching along with black
Exellent close up of the drummer and the sticks playing
A lively shot taken at the sun

Very good portrait taken in the crowd Ike, superb fancy dress, he reminds me a singer! Good light, excellent report from the carnaval, regards
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-03-22 15:16
I agree that the outfit of the drummer is very eye catching, it is not only the bright red color but also the shiny fabric which draws attention. Good idea of cropping the picture, this way you got nice portrait but still with the details of the settings which give us a clue regarding the event. I like the framing and delicately blurred background.
Thanks for sharing

God morning Ike,
A splendid carnival scene that illustrates that even if the parrticipants have fun it does not always make you smile you are in a small space and when people wave with their drum stick fiercely or are involved in other activites where you should perhaps be a little careful. The red jacket is an extra bonus here. TFS and have nice Sunday!
krzychu30 (15510) 2014-03-22 23:12
his red jakcet stands really out and give the scene an extra kick!
Excellently captured,framed and close-up portrait with strong graphical impact on us.
Lively,jouful and full of good energy image!
Wish You a nice sunday
