In my nearly 20 years as a Londoner I've seen a great many of parades but not once the London New Year's Day Parade. Mainly because I was nursing my hangover from the Old Year. But not so this year: I got myself to this local attraction, waited for the weekly theme to be announced and shot some snaps.
Highly recommended if you're into stationary crowds and marching bands.
Great use of DoF and as others have said, the colours are tremendous....love those bright tones of the brass!
A nicely caught moment - the sideways glance of the musician on the left...classic!
I do like the close, intimate feel too...feels like I'm stood right there!
Excellent work Bernd!
I really llke this shot Bernd. Nice shallow DoF to isolate the subject in question but just enough to capture the other musician looking straight at you. As has been said, the highlights are a bit on the lively side.
Really like this image. I wonder if a tighter crop would make stronger but then does it take away the story telling element of the image? I suppose it one of those images that can work in lots of different ways which is a good thing
heh, never been there, I wonder if they sell S&M Lego
Fits the theme brrnd, but not one of your best shots. It feels more like a snap than a planned shot. (Horizontals are off, it's off to one side and tight on the side - Dunno, not for me I'm afraid).
I didn't want to linger with a camera in front of a sex shop! That might have hurt their business or I might be beaten up (it's Soho after all). So I took three quick shots from the hip on the articulating screen and walked on.
And no, the guys with the cases walked past the shop, they didn't go in for a big shop
