About the Image(s)

We (before Covid) have an annual Sikh Festival in Marysville, about 45 minutes from here. Up to 80,000 people attend, and the Sikhs provide free food, demonstrations, a parade, and it's quite an event. This one was in 2017, I was sitting on the ground and amazed at these men in bare feet jumping high into the air -- incredible !
Taken with my OLD Nikon D70, 17-70 F2.8 lens, F 8, 1/1000 sec., at 26 mm. I developed it in Lightroom and then Photoshop, because his face was in shadow and I wanted to lighten it up. Please critique. Thank you !

Great shot...reminds me of the ones I missed when I was in Turkey and trying to shoot the whirling dervishes. This one is very well done.   Posted: 01/13/2022 19:48:54

A really nice image of the guy jumping. I like all the colors in the background. His facial expression is interesting. I should have been on the ground when I took Maasi Warriors jumping.   Posted: 01/14/2022 13:50:23
