Looks like a fun day out. Are you a resident, or just visiting?

My only issue is that some of the shots look a bit processed.

Thanks for the comments, everyone.
I had to go a little over head with the clarity because many of the photos were slightly out of focus....it´s really hard to shoot a fast moving mass of people with a manual 70-300mm. After today I will definitely look into a 18-200mm or a 55-210mm for NEX.

Thanks, guys. Since I´ve moved from Barcelona to Brazil the way I take pictures and color correct my photos has changed. Carnival is the feast of the people where all classes meet, it´s colorful, it´s vibrant, it´s sweaty, it hits you in the face like a thousand flavors mixed into one.

I know what you're saying RAWFA. There will be music and drum beats, plus the excited sounds that a large crowd makes. The cultural energy in an event like that does 'hit you in the face' as it heightens one's emotions and senses. I like the colours just the way they are, on my favourite photos in your series (8, 17, 26)... however, this brightness of colour did not work so well for me on some of the other photos for various reasons.

Colour perception is a funny thing. UV light in New Zealand is extremely strong, and during a bright sunny day the sky and the grass appears very intense. I am accustomed to seeing very bright colours. Sometimes I have to decrease the saturation levels in post processing to make "nature look more natural." Increasing your saturation levels to make "nature match the emotional intensity" is valid, but not all subject compositions can handle some of the side-effects.

This pic below was taken with my E16mm Pancake with a bare front element. I only have one UV filter in 49mm size but it was on my other lens. Other than downsizing this image, this photo is the original with no processing whatsoever. I have to process this image to make it believable, but that is what it looks like in real life.

Dioptrick good shot, sometimes you have to play with the saturation, contrast for best results but it is a very effective tool to make it look better to the photos, there are 6 different exposiones to play with HDR ....

Great bundle mate, thanks a lot.
We have a carnival starting this 16th here in Cyprus also but is by far overshadowed by the one you guys have there :)
