I took this shot this morning. This "NARITA Gion Festival" is the vey famous and happy one, and the location is in Narita where we have an international airport, so there are many visiters from overseas. This is the third time for me to join in this one. Today unfortunatelly we had rain from the evening, but until late afternoon was OK. I have many firends for the particaipants, as I continued to visit for three years.
So I am very happy to see the girls growth. I will up several photos for some days. I will join again this coming Sunday too.

Great POV for this one. Very nice picutre again from you. I like the colorful flowers in the foreground. It gives the photo a nice deep 3 dimensional feeling.
Is this festival held at Narita San? We spent a whole day there after being bumpt from an overbooked flight back to Europe. Beautiful shrine and wonderful park behind it. As it was late autumn the colors of the trees in the park where spectacular.

This is a suitable opportunity to praise your well balanced composition :-). For their own sake I hope they won't tilt. Magnificent and very colourful. There's also a good connection between the rounded top of the human pyramid and the treetops behind them.

sometimes weather spoils our photo-plans, but sometimes it's interesting to shoot photos in rainy weather!
In this photo we can't see the blue sky and the Sun, but the blue sky is successfully represented by the row of blue flowers, and the sun is "substituted" by the red flowers :) Excellent DOF and great vertical composition. A very interesting, cheerful scene!
and wishes of a nice Sunday!

Namaskar dear Takero,
Another beautiful image from the festival. I like the blurred flowers in the foreground and the chariot carrying these people. I see some of them playing flutes. Looks very lively. Excellent quqlity with beautiful colors.

very interesting composition, I like very much the multiple layers, literally -layers of everything: of people, of flowers...
Great idea to present it, excellent work as usually!

Hello dear Takero,
this is very spectacular and captivating picture. You composed it from a great point of view that allowed you to include the superb colourful flowers and a unique and unexpected sight above them. I had never seen anything like this before. The foreground is very bright and eye catching and wisely blurred so that we may focus on the float and the people on it. Lighting and sharpness are excellent and there are a lot of intriguing details and expressions to observe. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a good day,

Hello dear Takero-san
Here apart from presenting the cultural part, I like the imclusion of the layers of red & violet...though OOF, they add to the colour splash of the scene. The massive float & the people dressed in unform makes for good viewing
Have a great weekend Takero-san
