    Suvaco de Cristo (Christs´ Armpit) is the funy name of a very traditional street carnival troupe in Rio de Janeiro. I´ve taken some stills with my NEX7 + Tamron 18-200mm (a not on the Tamron, it´s small for a zoom with that range but the AF is a hit and miss)

    You captured some great shots there, RAWFA. But I confess that I kept thinking about how colorful the costumes and makeup probably were as I looked at them. Care to toss up a few color images as well?

    Beautiful B&W recordings. The colours I had also, however, like to see..

    Thanks, guys. I just wanted to stay away from the clichè and do something different from what I did last year.

    Great shots, from what looks like a fun day.

    Would love to see some color shots though.

    Well done, I love the B&W tones. At the same time, some might be interesting with those lively carnival colors also ...

    Nothing wrong with that. In fact, I think it's great you set out to do something different, and you have some great shots to show for it. Perfect amount of sepia toning, too.

    Wonderful series !! 11 is my favorite, hands down. I REALLY like your deliberate choice of B&W for what must be a super colorful event. It takes balls to do that, but it works JUST fine. Kudos.
