Why samba in Japan ? I am not so sure. Several decades years ago many Japanese immigrated to Brazil and diplomatic relationship is good. Anyway with no close connection with those reasons, now Samba dance performance is one of very famous summer seasonal event in Japan. She is a pure Japanese.

Vibrant colour. Good DOF.

Wonderful portrait! You caught her expressions really well. And the colours are excellent too. It's definitely strange to see samba in Japan...

this samba girl looks so fiery and sunny, so energetic! I like your choice of POV and the composition. The colours are excellently natural, as practically always in your photos! Well, we lack only music in this photo ;)
and I wish you a good week!

I never knew Samba is performed in Japan as well! A fine image with perfect focus on her face, fiery eyes & waving hands, all framed well with the yellow plumes.

wonderful colourful photo of this dancer with the yellow feathers. You hit the right moment to shoot her ecstatic face expression... Must have been a very nice time watching these parade.

it's a pleasure to get to know your gallery, you have many beautiful photos of a country I have not visited yet (Japan) and that I am so curious to see (one day...).
I stopped here because a) it's an amazing study of colour and b) you captured an expression which is a great eye-catcher.
I have indeed Brazilian colleagues of Japanese descent, so the mix is not entirely unknown to me.

This is another good shot in your surprising serie on japanese samba. I like very much the colors, with the bright yellow and the touch of deep blue in the background. It seems such an explosion of joy, with exultation written on her face! Bravo!
