Hello Takero. My compliments for this great and colorful photo. You captured this beautiful scene, masterful at using your camera. I like the composition very much, because in the narrow picture frame is just what is really important to see. Rgds, Wolfgang.

You found more pretty girls, but there is a great choice of beauty on Bali. You captured the attention of one of them which was essential to the composition. The light and colours and details are beautiful.

This is a fantastic series you have shared with us, each picture as wonderful as the next. It is a fantastic way of capturing this event, and the people behind the colour and spectacle. This shows us the minute attention to detail that these performers do, and has, as always, a wonderful capture of expression.
Thanks for sharing, and greetings from Ireland.

A beautiful portrait from a few years ago. Lots of colours to see, it captures the vibe of Bali well. Sharp photography with lots of details in the traditional head attire. I like the depth of field, the background is nicely matted for a stand-out subject. Great!

Hello dear Takero,
a wonderful picture with the two lovely dancers preparing for their performance. The scene is very natural and charming. I like very much how the one of the girls is concentrated in fixing her friend's costume while the other one is looking intently at you establishing a great contact with the viewer as well. I also like the tight frame, depth, mild lighting and lovely colours as they all contribute to the naturalness and pleasant atmosphere of the scene. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

This is an excellently composed image with lovely face details. Very good sharpness and color contrast Well done. Love the brilliant colors, yet they're presented softly. Nice work.

Hello dear Takero-san
Indeed Bali is spectacular & a photographer's paradise. I like the head dress which is made up of vegetables & leaves...she has a bright face & the cute smile she gives is wonderful.
Have a great week Takero-san
