This is the continuation from previous one. "Oiran" group had procession in the canal in this town. This town has long history and had much prosperity once upon a time.

Hello dear Takero,
Sorry I have missed keeping up with your posts but this one is fabulous. The rich colours and the effective grouping in the boat all held together under the umbrella
Beautiful, TFT and enjoy your week

Stunning image. The framing is perfect, and the people in the boat are positioned so perfectly as well. I really admire how the very formal looking lady in the centre is making eye contact with the camera, its very effective, while everybody else seems so oblivious to the lens, and so pleased in their surroundings. The colours and composition could not be better, fantastic!
Thanks for sharing

Hello Takero - Such a colourful and very nicely composed shot. Every face is visible and there is a lovely symmetry in the positioning of the people in the boat. A pleasure to see these wonderful costumes. Warm regards rosemary

J'aime bien ce côté Venisien, l'expression sérieuse des personnes, la couleurs des kimono et les détails dans les cheveux, belle présentation

Nice shot of this full group, looking quite precise in their places in the boat. I see that you caught the woman in the center's eye here! Good to see her in a different angle than the one from your previous shot.

A deep and beautiful red that catches our eyes. I like also the numerous people on the boat and the vertical format, that gives a concentration (density) of shapes and colors very attractive.

Well taken, good pov, interesting scene and perfect colors and sharpness, tfs.

Hello dear Takero,
a lovely and very effective composition supported by excellent sharpness, depth and perspective. I like very much the shape of the boat and its colourful crew under the red umbrella. Your lighting is excquisite too and I love the way the reds and the diverse expressions have been captured so clearly and vividly against the subdued and moody colours of the environment. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
Ourania from now rainy Leros

you have posted so many interesting photos while I've been not active these weeks...!
I don't know why this photo attracted my attention first of all among the others... perhaps it's a bit unusual, to my eye. The big red umbrella matches perfectly the red clothes of the girls - and this, undoubtedly, creates a perfect balance.
The composition is simple but very interesting: you chose a very good POV to shoot this photo.
By the way, it is also very interesting for me to study the facial expressions of these people sitting in the boat: they are so different, which gives freedom to imagination - what they may be thinking about?? :)
kind regards, and warmest greetings from Moscow,

Thanks for your visit. I am fine! I hope your are OK!
Excellent photo! I agree with the Trekkers, it is really look like Venice. Amazing comparison. But I also like this composition, perfect exposure.
Greetings from the cool rainy place,
