In Shades of Green

By TrevBatWCC    
I had a couple of comments on my last upload, Curls , which made me chuckle, saying that the lady looked like Barbara Windsor and the gentleman like Alan Sugar! Grin
Another of my favourites from that same day, managing to get eye contact with the subject.

That's the thing about full-face masks - you can see the eyes but not the expression!
A well-balanced image that displays more of the costume than usual. Excellent colour.

Another fine costume Trev.
She does seem to favour green here,
so unlike Moira's upload of her champagne lady,
this one must be a Guinness drinker !!

A fantastic costume, Trev, what a pity there is all that scaffolding behind her, though. I wonder, on avergage, how many times these masked ladies and gentlemen have their photos taken? Carol

Partial desaturation makes sense of what could have been a cluttered composition. I'm glad you kept a hint of the background - less fantasy, more reality than in most such uploads.

There's a face in there somewhere, isn't there? I know it's there somewhere...Wink

Great image Trev, and very generous of you to lend her your feathers.

Well captured Trev and I like the background too. (I was probably photographing Veneteian Refuse vehicles while you were getting this lady)!

Another fabulous costume creation, wildly vibrant colours and all captured so well in this fine close-up shot, Trev: and what an experience being there to witness all this colour and activity.

Don't recall seeing this lady around on my travels. Very well captured and good eye contact. Like the green shades too. Moira

Quote:I love the understated colour in this. The green's very attractive.

have to agree with the above statement, this was my first thoughts and this a truly superb picture, it has a certain delicacy about it and the green works very well

A wonderfully complex costume centerd nicely on the mask. The eye contact really brings it to life.

A beauty for sure. I also love it when I can get some eye contact - it engages so much more I think.
