Hi dear Mikio. The colourful flowerbeds create an impression of giant carpets and as usual, the Japanese people of all ages congregate to any place that showcases flowers. Excellent DOF and composition. Best wishes. Klaudio.

A gardeners delight!What an amazing sight.Bed after bed of the most colourful flowers. I like your P.O.V. with swirling paths. It`s a pity there are so many people in the picture, but impossible to get an image without them.
P/S. An informative note - Thankyou.

What a beautiful flower beds in vivid purple colours.
The inclusion of the long lines of visitors add human interest and certainly gives us a good sense of scale.
I really like the altered image #2 in the workshop. Wonderful composition.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Mikio - The colourful phlox make a wonderful subject and all 3 of your shots are super, each one has a slightly different look and feel and together they make a fabulous post. A sight to delight the eye and all the figures wandering through the gardens prove it!

This just leaps off the screen full of vibrancy and the stunning carpets of pink & white, indeed the temptation is hard to resist. The clarity and composition give the lively shot a real boost and mouth-watering contrast along with throng of people are vital to emphasize depth and perspective. A fine capture adequately exposed and your approach is a winning formula! Awesome capture. Congrats
