Playing "carracas"

Playing "carracas"

Rattle? I'm not sure about the translation of "carraca".

The brotherhoods in Zaragoza are very noisy.

In my opinion this would have been so much more powerful without the effects. The background at the top doesn't match the rest of the background ( especially through the eyehole front) and is muddy and unconvincing. The blurry hand has become the focal point which detracts from the power of the image as a whole. The thumbnail looks great!

I see things another way. The blurring hand lends energy and a vibrant street feel to this. The only effect I see is a slow shutter speed, which the exif data says is 1/15 of a second. A flash helped give definition from the background. I view the background at top as just exactly what it looks like, some kind of wall or sign or something. On the other hand, I couldn't tell a thing from the thumbnail.

I love the colors you have captured here. I bet the sound from the carracas give you goose bumps when they are all playing together.
Have a Happy Easter, Ana. Smile!

Wow! Thanks for your comments and generous ratings. Mald it's partly right. I had to be more careful, but I hadn't enough time I like this shot for the action in the hands. The background is a nice wall, but the people was sitting there, so you can only see their legs, then I decided to blur it, may be too much. If I can I will try to do something with it. Smile
