St. Paddy's Day Parade...

... in Old Town Alexandria.   I punched up the vibrancy and contrast and added some vignetting.   Aperture rocks.   I am consistently amazed at the difference between a full frame (5D) and cropped (40D) sensor.   All this was shot with the Canon 5DmkII and the 24-105mm f4L IS kit lens.

  1. The traditional colors of St. Patrick's Day really pops with the increased vibrancy in this set. I particularly like the portraits -- I'm amazed at how you can find the faces in the crowd that "speak" so much to the viewer.

  2. I call it.. accidental portraiture. Thanks Ken!
