My ladies and I popped into Leicester today to go to the Mela festival in the city centre.

Today's shot is from a walk I took along the main high street. It exists as some attempt to convey the unbelievable busyness of the city centre streets. Walking along with a pushchair was nigh on impossible. The turn out was incredible.

I have to say it was absolutely amazing. The atmosphere was fantastic and friendly. My daughter loved it!

As for the shot; I tried to optically achieve the effect of zoomming. My attemps were ok, but I found it so much easier to achieve the look I was after post process.

I am a little annoyed. I was hoping to get the shot in camera but, ultimately, I'd rather get to the shot I was after by what ever means, than not.
