After Wednesday's shots from the Chinese New Year celebrations, here are some from the Carnival.

Carnival

I tried and play with light a bit for these, using my external flash, but the results were not very convincing. Also, looking at the whole gallery it seems pretty obvious to me I should have taken tighter shots. I do know one of the most important things to do to improve photographs is to get closer, yet in the midst of all the animation, I seem to have forgotten that lesson. I'll try and do better next year.
