Blue in a mist

By Lillian  
Maybe...last in the series, so putting on a V2 a close up of the lady in blue

But even though missed the bottom of her skirt, still putting as a lead image due to background

I am definitely going back next Carnival...anyone else?
as have a brilliant hotel with only 6 rooms B&B approx 75 a night for room
and already getting a list together...PM me if interested

Have a great day
And remember Valentines tomorrow!!Wink

Two beauties from the festival, Lillian: should explain......I am referring to the photos only: V 1 places the setting ( as of one needed such) whilst V 2 is such an excellent study of the elaborately costumed lady, exposure spot on as is the detail and neat 'crop'.

Two excellent shots Lillian, with V2 for me though, a superb close up with glorious colour and detail. The whole series has been excellent with 'Double Act' and 'Venetian Sunshine' being favourites
