About the Image(s)

This photo was taken in 2018 at the San Francisco Carnaval.
This is a shot of the initiation ceremony of the Carnaval.

That was my first time at the Carnaval and I was amazed by the display of colorful outfits that everyone was wearing and traditional dances representing Caribbean, African Latin American culture.

Gee, that looks like a very exciting event - heard so much about Carnaval from around the world and hopefully I get join in the fun someday.

Great shot!! The smoke, the lead dancer hands are moving and balanced by the the dancer to his right (photo-left) bending over....I love it!

However, the 5x7 crop is not working because of the people lined up watching on photo-left: all I did was re-crop as an 8x10. (In stead of trying to Delete the people, as so often I see in PSA groups and local clubs, instead its all about checking the background and having patience before triggering the shutter-release, or in this case, choose a different crop).

I agree a very nice shot. I have never been to the carnival. I had no idea such a photo worthy event was available so close. I like Lance's crop. I know how difficult it can be to work around audiences.   Posted: 10/18/2021 13:04:09
