Bravo Patrish! The images speak for themselves. You've captured the true essence of people having a great time during this parade.
I see you posted this in digital art. What type of treatment or processing did you do?

Jon, thank you so much for commenting.

After using Photoshop to straighten and sharpen, these three shots were treated with Topaz Adjust 4, using the sliders to increase or decrease different actions.

You can download a 30 day trial, which I did before deciding to purchase it.

You have captured the mood well here, Patrish. I like the series.

Like all three, #1 stands out for the interaction of the crowd (especially the miniature flag bearing man) with the clown). Another thing, everyone appears relatively happy. No crying kid or bored-looking big people.

Wish I could say it looks like fun, but not everybody loves a parade. Your images are fun though, for absolute sure.

These are great, love the explosion of colours. I think the post processing worked particularly well in the first and third images.

Greg and Timmy, thanks so much for your comments. Greg, you're not the first person to tell me they don't like parades. I wasn't loving this one either. It was a hot day and the crowds were swarming. Seemed like every time I stepped out to get a shot, someone got in front of me. But yes...these were fun pictures, and my two favorites from the day were #1 and #2. Thanks again!

Frankly, I thought I was the only person on the planet who dislikes parades. I run from them in Disney World. Easier to avoid in real towns. :)

Thanks for taking the time to let me know you've had others tell you this and I am not alone after all. :)

Patrish - I like the processing you do on these type shots... It is a bit unreal which fits the festive mood I think - can't quite explain it any better than that...

Now, I am wondering if you took your zoom along?... I see some interesting portraits possible in those crowds....
