What makes this picture stand out is it´s excelent color, and contrast with the black and white background. I think you could make this photo more effective if you re-did the selection (at least I´m assuming this picture has been digitally edited), and speant more time to detail, maybe eliminating the need to feather the border (again that´s what it looks like you did). If you find yourself constantly doing photos like this, dealing with selections, try reasearching a Wacom graphics tablet. Depending on how serious a digital photographer you are, you can select a tablet that meets your price range. With the Canon D30 camera, quite an investment, I think not owning a graphics tablet is cheating yourself.

Back to the picture: great job, excellent detail and exposure, especially for a crowded enviornment.

Eric,

 

This is wonderful use of color. I came to your image after reading your thread about "intolerance" regarding this image, and am pleased that I did so. IMHO this image, in one shots gives a feel of what the parade might have been like, a carnival like atmosphere. In fact, if the description didn't include a mention of a gay pride event, I might assume it was taken at something like New Orleans' Mardi Gras or some similar event. IMHO you managed to make an image that is both a fine art and a photojournalism image. GOOD WORK!
