From the Roma Circus:

Another fun moment: One of the main theme in any Circus was always the clowns show.
Here, I caught the moment when the horn of the Tuba was "shot" in the air by the guy on right side, directly "landed" on the clown's head on left.
The stage was under slight artificial fog/smoke deliberately dispersed.

Picture is RAW, F4.5, 1/800, ISO1600, spot, cropped all sides for a better composition.

Hi Ike

Haha! Looks like the trombone has been disconnected into 2 parts and they cannot figure out how to put it back together again. Good lighting and sharpness. Tfs!

Hello Ike,
This really looks like a classic trick for clowns. You timed the shot perfectly, when the horn has almost reached the clown's head. Excellent clarity and colours.

Zelim vam lepu i mirnu noc, sve najbolje, srecno.

HelLO DEAR iKEHAREL and have a nice time
and a happy new day
a pleasant photo changing everybody s mood
I agree with you that one of the main theme
in any circus was always the clowns show

Hi Ike,

You have captured well the action of the clowns. The point of view is showing the details of their costumes. The surrounding light has a special effect on the colours. Have a nice day.


Hello Ike,
A very fine photo in demanding light. Spot metering is spot-on! (I could not resist the pun.) The magenta (or purple) light is very attractive.

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Les enfants doivent être à la fête à travers ce spectacle.
Le métier de clown est l'un des plus difficiles des arts du cirque (selon les spécialistes).
Belle présentation très colorée.


Hi Ike,
Well taken this spectacle, good light capture, nice colors, tfs. Interesting scene with these two musicians.

Hello Ike, Another nice scene from the Circus. Have you been there alone or with your daughters? The circus seems to me the attraction for the kids rather than adults, but I do not know why. I haven't been in circus since childhood (it was a long time ago). Interesting background, strange purple colour.

Kind regards Malgo

Hello Ike,
A great capture at an opportune moment. Well exposed with very good colours and clarity.

Bonjour Ike,

Ce n'est pas toujours facile de faire ce genre de photos de spectacle, surtout à cause de la lumière qui est toujours changeante et des mouvements brusques des artistes. Ici, toutes les conditions sont remplies.

Hello Ike,

Real a good clown is nice to look at.
The acts are sometimes not easy.
But a nice picture excellent photographed.
Excellent of colours.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

Hello Ike,
All over the world clowns can make people laugh.
What a perfect timing for this shot! Congratulations!
Beautifully presented in a bright purple colour.
Best regards, Paul

Hello, Ike.
Undoubtedly the clowns are indispensable elements in the circus, you got a good time with the two actors each with a part of the musical instrument.
A magnificent color, good management of lighting and sharpness.
Well done.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

Hello Ike,
one more beautiful scene from the Roma circus with the clowns to play in this ping environment.Good the quality of the scene.


Hello, Ike!

An interesting and curious scene, captured with very good light management, which is not usually easy in this kind of place! Very nice job!

Ha! Ha! Ike, you have really entertained us with the many performers at the circus. I almost feel I have seen the performance.
I do think clowns have to time their act to get the very best possible reactions from the audience. It would seem that these two have that timing honed to perfection!
The lighting colours add to the attraction.
I do think you have done particularly well to get these details in what is a very difficult lighting situation.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
