Carnival 1

By TrevBatWCC    
Even if the weather’s a bit grey & dismal Sad, the costumes are certainly colourful Grin And you certainly see a variety of colours & costumes at Carnival time in Venice – these are just two of them. Be prepared to be bombarded with a few more Carnival costumes!

V1: 1/125 sec, F8, 55mm, ISO 100
V2: 1/125 sec, F8, 30mm, ISO 100

Good details and colours too Trevor, two fine captures, for me it might be worth trying to bring the eyes out a bit more if you can.

Great shots Trevor and I'm quite jealous, I've wanted to visit the carnival for a while but my wife insists it will be too cold!

V1 for me. So that's what you've been up to!
Definite shades of the Wicked Queen in Snow White here, particularly in the character on the left.

Fabulous masks and costumes, Trev: just the sort of image I have been looking forward to seeing. Expertly captured, both versions.

Lovely images and so very different for you, Trev. V1 is my favourite but I'm so glad you included V2 so we can see their costumes too Smile

They always make me think they've raided a theatre costumiers. I suppose they have really, but what a faff dressing up in all that lot.

There was so much colour around, especially on Friday morning when the sun was actually shining and the sky a brilliant blue. Beautiful shots Trevor.

Wonderfully elaborate masks! There's something almost sinister about these bland, lifeless faces - anyone could be hiding behind them.... Good to see the full costumes in V2, but V1 is my pick of the two.

Cor blimey! That is some get up to do the weekly shop in!Wink

Just had to have a click to see if any of your Venetians were up and hey!

Love the detail in V1 and the wider view too in V2 - though folks in masks, or whatever they are called, always give me the creeps!

Lovely images Trev.

Wonderful images Trev, hope you had a wonderful time, I'd love to go one day, it must be amazing to see !
