This is a good capture of part of the festival, Caisii, I like the strong bright colours, the tall feathers, and the inclusion of the shield in the foreground. What lets it down is the background, which is a shame. The background is nicely blurred, but there is too much going on. Always look around before shooting and position yourself so that the background has as few distractions as possible. I feel sure that if you had asked the tribe to then look in your direction, they would have been obliging. This would also probably have given you eye contact with all three of them because you had their attention. I also feel that a little fill flash would have given more detail to the costumes.
Pamela.

The potential here is superb, but the background is totally dominent. It's too late now, but when you get this type of chance, fill the frame with the three heads, get the exposure right and shoot plenty of images with, hopefully, at least one where they are all looking at you.
