Photographer's Note

Last weekend it was carnival. Here in Holland the celebration is concentrated in the largely roman-catholic southern part of the country. Much people from the north go there to have a nice knees up and booze up.
Up here in the north in the multi cultural city of Rotterdam, the carnival is handled a little differently. It's put on hold until the temperatures rise again, ....and then there's the Summer Carnival which its strong tropical touch.

This shot was taken some years ago at the staging area where the groups prepared themselves for the big parade.

The more or less standard Photoshop work flow: I altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, using different layers, USM-ed, added a frame and resized and enhanced the edges and did a gentle USM (0,5px, 24%).
