Mosquito

This is Fela Kutis youngest son. He's very wiggly, like a worm while performing. His music is sort of like his dads....Afrobeat. The message he sends is similar to his dads too..he is against the current situation in Nigeria..corruption etc.

In an interview he says

"Our colonial masters were in Africa to do what ever they wanted to do. They taught the Africans many things but when they left they didn't teach Africans how to be governed by what my father called 'Democrazy'. Miltary governments have destroyed Africa to the extent that no remedy can be applied to save the continent"

Nice capture Etomi. Like the B/W conversion, it really adds to the mood and atmosphere of the shot. Its also great how you captured the motion of the girl dancing on the right..smile
E Etomi: Thanks Elsie.. I used this tutorial as a guide http://www.ephotozine.com/techniques/viewtechnique.cfm?recid=364. Passed unto me by a fellow shutterchancer
The motion blur goes well with this performance. SO is the B/W impression. There's energy and expression here. This fares better and appropriate compared to just still, motionless composition.
On his interview, there's truth in it. Sometimes, the government after the colonizing gavernment is little or no better than the one, it has taken over.

I've this theory that says, how a group of people manages a country right now depends on how it overtook the previous government.
E Etomi: Thanks for stopping by. I hope things will turn around one day.

This is a very nice shot and the colouring is wonderful. I like the blur and think it adds a nice touch of movement to the scene.

Great feeling of movement in this shot.
Yes I like it... It took a moment but I am satisfied the blur works ok. Look forward to more of your work.
Yep, this is a nice example of a blur-shot that works! I love the vibe here!
