Holi - Festival of Colours - part 6

Posted by Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 30 March 2015 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

One more crowd shot from the festival. The clouds of Holi powder have settled giving me a moment for a quick snap - from a safe distance to keep the powder out of my camera.

Two more portrait shots to follow in this series. Later in the week a new series that will also feature bright and vibrant colours.

Note - I have cropped this image and reposted it.

Nikon D5000 1/1000 second F/4.2 ISO 400 82 mm

Nice group portrait Stephen. When I scrolled down so the picture was cropped off close to the top of the heads I thought it even more effective as there was no longer the distraction of the background greenery.

@grouser: Thanks, grouser. Good point - I will try the recrop as you suggest. Agree it makes a better image. Update - as you can now see I have reposted with a new cropped version.
