Carnival Costumes: Indian Chief Feather Hat, Barcelona, Spain

Kid wearing indigenous carnival feathered costume

Another one for the road, a boy wearing an Indian Chief feather hat during Carnival 2008 celebrations in Barcelona. I am trying to get more colorful pictures, I calibrated my monitor recently but as you know that's not an easy task. My screen is relatively big but not too good in quality. It looks somewhat softer now but I can perceive all the gray scale tonalities. Maybe in my attempt to make my images more contrasty they show too dark on your monitor. Perhaps they look more saturated now. No matter what the final result is I hate dull pictures, at least unintentional dull pictures. We may not be good photographers but at least let's avoid that disgusting washed out look. I know many of you obtain quite colorful images full of contrast, any tips that might help us all enhance our photos?


  1. What a fantastic series! Not only the costume, but all the expression of them are excellent. Great skill to capture those moment, too.

  2. Hola, Carlos!
    The colors look beautiful on my monitors.

    I think this is one of my favorite Carnival photos. The child is adorable, and his costume is wonderful.

    I see that the parade took place outside of the center of the city. That's great. I with officials i this town would do the same thing. All parades take place downtown, and traffic is crazy.

  3. I like this carnival series a lot:)
    Your photos are soo alive

  4. -Thanks Ben, I hope I captured something in those people. This is precisely what I try to do. Sometimes I do some others I don't. But it really makes me happy that you say that.
    -Oh Chris thanks so much for your kind words. Sometimes I am really intrigued about whether what I see on my monitor is not what you see on your screen. So I really appreciate your opinion.
    -Zsolt, your sincere words are really inspirational. Much obliged.

  5. Excelente imagem, que grandes cores deste indio, muito bem...

    Um abraço
