Another image from Paris Gay Pride 2007. I've got lots! I had a slight compositional conundrum with this one. Usually a photo looks best when somebody is moving to have more of the frame to go into than there is behind them. In this case it would have meant chopping out everything behind the umbrella including the corner of the RER (train station) sign, which is so typically Parisian and helps give the photo a sense of place.
I could also have chopped the left and got rid of the slightly messy crowd, but this didn't look to good either and both options would have produced an extremely square photo, which can be ok if you like it but wasn't what I wanted here.
In the end I decided not to crop at all, leaving the background elements on both left and right, the drabness of which sets off the bright colours beautifully.
