I was at Munich’s Oktoberfest for a couple of hours on Monday night. The event 
is easy to photograph in one sense—it is easy to find subjects, most of the 
time people do not mind being photographed—but the subsequent post-processing 
is a real challenge because of the mix of light of various colours. It is 
especially difficult to get the skin tones right in many cases. The obvious 
solution: show the event in black & white. What is important in the photos are 
the expressions of the people, the colours are secondary in my opinion. So here 
are 39 images of people having fun, for the most part. One of my comments on 
Facebook was that I do not recall being in one place with thousands of more or 
less drunk people who are behaving so peacefully. In the two hours of walking 
around, I did not see a single fight or anything even approaching one. Last 
call is early, at 10:30 pm (although one must consider that the start is early 
as well), and everyone heads to the U-Bahn or S-Bahn and takes the train home, 
assuming they remember the station at which they need to get off :-)


As always, comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
