Yestreday I shot another festival. This is the fourth time for me to take part in this festival, I like this festival very much. In this festival 9 portable shrines splint along the coast of the Pacific for around 8 kms. These girl are leader of the shrine, they run in front of the shrine. Maybe they are high school students, they jump up at a time upon someone's request. Thier vigor and passion is dazzling for me and I eny them.

It's extraordinary timing, not only for the girls to be off the the ground simultaneously, but also for the photographer to catch them in midair. It's a happy scene of the little girls in flight against a background of the waves rolling in.
Warm regards, and best wishes for a good weekend.

C'est une superbe prise de vue de ces jeunes filles en mouvement. Les poses et les expressions des visages sont à leur maximum d'intensité et elles nous montrent leur belle joie de vivre. Cette photo très bien réalisée est très positive et joyeuse.

another interesting photo of another festival, i love it :)
this time its a group of women or should i say girls.
normally you show a large group of men.
what makes this photo so visually effective are the strong whites contrasting with the grey's.
a beautiful color arrangement.

A wonderful photo here, Takero, and their energy and enthusiasm are definetly contagious...with some pretty good leaps, too! The one girl on the far left has a smile and face that could light up a room...for sure. Very nicely done again.

Hello dear Takero,
a wonderful photo that manages very effectively to transmit the joy and vigour it portrays. The dynamic jump of this lovely group of young girls has been captured with amazing sharpness and they seem to fly with joy. The luminosity of their clothes and smiles and the equally dynamic background transmit unequivocal optimism. Depth and lighting are marvellous too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Hello Takero san
I wasn't around for two days, but after two 16h shifts at work ...
Oh yes, isn't it great to be young and so full of life and energy.
Superb how you captured the girls in mid air, the white dresses contrasts beautifully with their tan. A great picture.
have a great weekend

I'm comparing your last four photos and have chosen this one as the best. This are real smiling faces. Excellent clarity and sharpness. Perfect composition with capturing all these girls in action. The deep depth of field is perfect, allowng to see the main subject, the jumping girls, but also the foaming sea in BG very clearly.
saxo042 (31802) 2012-09-15 5:18
This picture really emits happiness and joy! The girls in white against the waves with theur arms and legs stretched out are providing a very pleasant pattern!
Nard (6913) 2012-09-15 12:00
Beautiful picture. Dynamism, beautiful young girls, purity of the white (like adolescence) in accordance with the waves and a beautiful contrast with the dark sand. Splendid ligth and perfect sharpness.

great capture. I like how you have managed to capture all the children jumping so high. They are also caught in nice poses. Great geometry with the bodies being perpendicular to the sea waves.
