Photographer's Note

Last week-end, the annual Venetian Carnival occured in Paris like each year. I was there last year too and I found this event so nice that I marked it on my calendar few months ago to get sure I would be there again. I was pretty surprised to see that there were no posting about this event this week so here is my contribution.

I believe there were even more people with costums this year. Many of them were really great with very nice attitude when wandering around. But the crowd was there together with the sun. It was not easy to shoot this week-end.

I liked this mysterious woman because we could see a part of her skin which made the costums even more natural and appealing.

I don't know if it was appropriate but I felt I needed to use the flash as a fill-in @ -2/3IL. No cropping, USM applied.
