This is one of the pictures i took during my city's carnival yesterday. I just love it. The custumes, the drumming, and her smile is something I can't stop looking at.

What do you think of it? Please be truthful and fully honest. How can I improve it? Bear with the editing though as It did it quickly via Instagram

really nice! it seems like your in between a nice environmental portrait or a cool tight vertical portrait. what i would suggest is to step back to show more of the environment. or you could have shot it vertical for a really cool portrait of the person.
Ps don't forget to show the hands (at least for this photo)it would help to tell the story

Thanks! I'll keep it in mind for the next one. It was sort of hard because they moved quite fast, and she just smiled for a second, but You're right. The environment would have sort of killed the environment, as it's one of the oldest streets of the city and isn't that beautiful, but again, taking note.

Thanks!
