I escaped the present time when cold continues, and posted the photograph of the season of summer this time. This photograph is taken for the all Japan college championship of the rowing competition in Toda-shi, Saitama in the summer of two years ago. This rowing course was a 2000m course developed for 1940 Tokyo Olympic Games used as a phantom. After the war, in Tokyo Olympic Games held in 1964, it was used as a rowing course. Main domestic rowing is held here still now. The boat shed of universities and business teams is placed on the both sides of a rowing course. I has memorized that it was a hot day of summer on that day. Many people who aid a participation team players had gathered on the bank. This photograph is taken the place where the woman who was wearing the straw hat and the woman with a parasol are sitting down the bank together so that the season of summer might be symbolized. It is visible the spectacle which the rowers of double scull who go to a start point are rowing in back.

A very pleasant and peaceful scene with the girls watching the row boat. Fine and attractive soft colours.

This is a very nice composition from a pleasant day in summer. Two persons are paddling their canoe on the calm water, while two women are enjoying watchin the water. You found nice diagonals that give the composition good balance. The mild colours are very pleasnt.

Very nice arrangement in well cropped format. You have excellently captured the young people (young girls if I'm not wrong) from well selected viewpoint. The selective focus makes this nice photo very special.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.

People watching can be rewarding, a good photo opportunity well taken as the couple become main focus of interest going about their business. A nice exploitation taken from this view point with some bright vivid colors rendering lots of strength to this shot. Lighting is subtle with excellent contrast with good hints of background interest as well. Well done.
