Da Jiu Festival taken place once in every 60 years in the Sheung Shui community. During the festival, the "Ghost King Parade" will be held. Dozens of the male village dwellers bring the 20 feet high paper-made Ghost King to run around the village.

The parade is finished by the ritual of burning the Ghost King to send him back to the underworld.

I like the first one. Amazing light management likely with fast lens and longer exposure. I looked at the rest of pict in your blog too. If I were given chance as an exerce of nitpicking, I would have zoomed into the Ghost King more with longer focal length lens. This may present another problem of underexposure . It is hard to balance in such situation.
Keep up with the good work.
