because it´s cool cool cool
Rinie said that the kiss in my previous pic was staged. It´s true, but it´s hard to tell who was not posing...
Well, these two were not kissing everyone for free.
4th entry for the São Paulo Gay Pride Parade series.
In the WS, another view of Paulista Avenue.
Thanks for stopping by.

Much better than your previous shot. I like here the blur and the movement, the light and colour and I love this clever composition.
Thanks for share.

This is soooo cool Isabel :P
I think this is brilliantly made, everything is as it should to be :)
How's my favorite brazilian? ;)

This kissing is a really great idea, I image you could pull off a great exhibition with this stuff. Nice work again.

Olá Isabel. Apesar de pensar que as tuas duas últimas fotografias estão muito bem estudadas, e pessoalmente só possa dar o meu apoio a todos aqueles que sofrem de homofobia de uma forma ou outra, não consigo deixar de achar que as gay parades são, na quase totalidade, uma forma de exibicionismo barato que não me agrada nada. Nunca pús os pés em nenhuma e não tenciono começar tão cedo.

a good one once again, I like the compo and overall light and colour.
Good thing to cover both women and men kissing but feel like the latter will always get less points (don't ask me why!).
Showing affection in public places is for me a sign of poor social manner - here it may be okay as it documents an event.
Have a great day,
PS. Forgot to crop out corners after rotating the image?

Another great one !!!
Dona Isabel, you are making ly day ...
I love the comp, the tilt and the contrast between the blurred people while the kissing couple is sharp.

a lot better than the previous imo isabel... definitely looks more natural and spontaneous... much stronger in composition too, i like the chaotic, parade background... good colours, i like the high contrast (perhaps the overblown white t-shirt could have been better handled..)... the brazilian flag is the icing on the cake... normally i'm not a big fan of black frames but it also seems to work well here...

Ola Isabel, what a gorgeous motion blur and tilt, PERFECT for the topic, the whirl, the hot hot hot kiss here that is very inspiring for a rainy moody day like today!
Wonderful angle. Excellent kiss!
PS somehow already out of greens but will be back...

something very important of your Gay Pride photos, my dear Isabel, is that they dont show a fact, show a feeling, a mood. Very soon in Madrid as well, your photos are very inspiring to me.

thank's to Miguel for this them.
I like this scene to kiss. it would seem that there is a little precipitation, a fear which this moment disappears after time from a gay pride. keep cool :)

Well this is quite a series - the motion blur here surrounding and enhancing the main subjects is out of this world - you have create a protective and at the same time revealing fog of color here - remarkable.
