Wonderful composition, great presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

This is beautiful! Better than a Christmas card. The shape of those buildings is very appealing, and very heartwarming, and I can imagine inside every lit window is a family gathered around a fire having a great moment. I love the way you have composed this so that the scene is filled with the coldness of winter, but in every area there is a wonderful light from a building to brighten it up perfectly. Really beautifully done!
All the best

hi takero. beautiful twilight colors and tungsten yellows contrasting with cold blue haze. i like your far standing poin which makes the houses look so tiny, like a model village.

I agree with the comments made about your image having the Christmas feel about it - all it needs is a bit of snow on the roof tops... having said this... I very much like your photo... A very pretty picturesque scene.

Hi Takero, Wonderful blue hour scenery with very good POV. The lights from the windows contrasted to the blue environment is dramatic for viewing. I like the architecture of the houses, they look houses in cartoon. Long exposure for such great detail picture at blue hour. Thank for sharing

Fine night scene of Shirakawago village, enough light to provide architectural details, with radiating house lights.
A different and interesting view from your previous autumn color Shirakawago scenes.

Hello Takero, excellent photography of this charming view of a mountain village (I think it's the first image I see a Japanese town is not a big city), very well captured in this great and beautiful postcard. An interesting picture with good sharpness, depth and quality. A great job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good morning and happy rest of week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

My first impression, when I saw your post, was that this must be a 'winter time' photo:) Maybe because of the special mood with quite dark blue tonality contrasting lovely with yellow lights of the houses. Superb work! Excellent visual effect achieved!

Hello dear Takero,
you assumed an excellent point of view at a perfect moment to capture a magical aspect of this place. I like very much the tight framing that makes the vibrance of the perspectives and the architectural patterns stronger. It also makes the quiet village look delightfully cozy. Depth and clarity are stunning and we can discern a lot of details from this privileged vantage point. The warmly lit windows stand out wonderfully amid the dark natural colours. The indirect human reference is very intriguing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

belle image nocturne avec un bel effet créé par ces toits et ces fenêtres éclairées bien répartis dans l'image.

un villaggio molto caratteristico, impreziosito dalle tante luci che fanno vagare l'occhio dell'osservatore alla ricerca di particolari resi ancor più interessanti dalla qualità della tua foto.

Hi takero, I agree what already other people have noticed - even without the snow it looks like a Christmas postcard. marvelous evening view from this most beautiful japanese village.
Warm regrads Malgo

Hello Takero - This looks like a wonderland, the distinctively shaped houses with their glowing windows make me think of fairy-tales. So pretty with a wintery feel. Warm regards Rosemary
macjake (57074) 2013-11-21 6:24
such an interesting form of architecture.
funny to see how the smaller rooftops have 2 windows up and down, whereas the larger rooftops have 3 windows in a triangular form.
a fine cultural and interesing post for TE.
works really well

Magnifique photo prise à l'heure bleue, une belle vue sur les toits du village à partir de ta fenêtre. Les lumières des fenêtres créent un bel effet.
Félicitations!... et toutes mes amitiés,

You have captured a lovely atmosphere in this photo. We can see from the cars that people here live modern, ordinary lives, but the houses tell us this place is deeply rooted in the past. The lights shining through the windows create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Yur high POV gives us a very good view of the village.

It looks like a miniature village. I like the effect of the lights trough the windows and the repetition of patterns.
mcmtanyel (14123) 2013-11-26 20:33
What a pretty sight! It looks like we are looking at a miniature village, almost like those Department 56 collectible porcelain model villages. Excellent work!

It's also very nice during the night, with the lights on! We can clearly see the shapes of the houses and it has a winter atmosphere! I like it!
