[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo was taken at the Montreal Gay Pride Parade on July 25th 2005.Mais oui! With less than 500 days to go to the first ever Outgames,Montreal organizers have surpassed 4,000 registrants from 85 countries! From aerobics to wrestling,and choirs to square dancing,this festival of sport and culture is guaranteed to be like none before it! Just visit www.montreal2006.org for all the details.I have also posted in the ws a more journalistic sepia version.

very good photo

Très belle photo, Michel !
Pleine expression de joie et de fête et une belle façon d'annoncer l'événement de l'an prochain à Montréal ...
Le jaune citron vert donne encore plus de punch à l'image.

what a dinamyc picture.....
I preffer this then the sepia, I like very much this acid green colour....

Photo pleine de vie et de mouvement, Michel! Cela rend bien le "mood" de fête et de célébration de la parade. Ton traitement qui a ajouté le vert & le jaune ajoute aussi au sentiment de fête et de joie. J'aime beaucoup mieux cette version que la sépia dans l'atelier. Bravo!

Bonjour michel
Que de joie, je me demande pourquoi ce jaune citron vert ca représente plustot l'acide et ici c'est l'inverse ...J'adore ces colliers avec les petites boulles

très belle photo d'ambiance

Une photo pleine de mouvement, et ton traitement rajoute un véritable air de fête! Pas toujours facile ce genre de photo journalistique, une belle réussite. Bravo!

la pêche ! j'aime beaucoup pour la netteté d'une photo sur podium (pas évident) et le pp de couelurs est bien trouvé.
une belle annonce pour ce rdv

this photo is a cult.
this photo presents a marvelous scene....
life energy... and power to say " hallo, I´m here...
Ilike this one very much......
have a nice day...

Great action shot, with a very unsual effect, which works very nicely. I also like the angle and POV.
Well done!

Salut michel

The lime green & lemon yellow duotones, go well together in this image. Tres bon travail!

a very dynamic image, good work, Michel(*_*)

Very dramatic action shot that is well taken as we can see the expressions of many of the subjects. I like the way you can take an original photo and do whatever you want to with it. I lack that skill...The sepea is good, but I prefer the "Sir Nova" style of this one......:O)

Hi Michel,
great and dynamic picture ... and all these guys look so good.
I like the colour and the green tones!
Nice composition!
Good for my favorites.

On balance I prefer the coloured 'acid' version, I think it adds to the obvious excitement of the crowd :)

Salut Michel adore la vitalitee et le vert utilise ici qui e plus prononcant que ci ce fut un autre couleur. Mais la foto parle d'elle meme, Bravo!!!

Superb dinamic shot Michel,
i like it
take care

HI Michel
Very happy picture. Joyfull, light mood and pleasant to see. Sepia one makes it look like archive picture, from some old times newspaper. I like both.

Well doen!

take care, Stef

ps: I got curious to see the audience of those games. Must be very, very diverse ;)
