Hello dear Takero,
I like very much the sense of mystery prominent in this photo. The naturalness of the scene comes to great contrast with the hidden faces and the marvellous shapes that have taken their place. Now I understand fully what you mentioned in your previous posting about modesty. Depth and lighting are very effective. I love the chromatic tones, their intriguing combinations and elegant overall effect. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Hello dear Takero,
You have been busy with many festivals.
I especially like that this picture shows the preparation for the event rather than the celebrations as it helps to focus our attention on the time and effort the performers give beyond the actual festival performance. A great piece of documentary photography. I think it is a nice touch that the faces are hidden and the performers are somewhat anonymous
Your usual sharpness, detail and compositon are once again displayed well
Thanks for sharing

Hello my friend Takero,
thank you for your many comments and also for your nice compliments. I appreciate it very much.
Your last photo has shown lady with covered face; this one with three coverad faces. I'm missing these beautiful smiling faces. But without joking, this is an excellent composition. I like the contrasting colors and also youd DOF selection. The shallow depth of field also separates the subject well from the background. Well done.
Wish you a very nice weekend.
