This is still continuation from previous ones. They did the precession on the historical road along with canals, where there are many big warehouses. The balck walls are very tasteful but high contast with white face of "Oiran" is a little pity, but no way to avoid.

Your Oiran pictures getting better and better. This one is so out of time, it could have been taken at any time in the past.
The beautiful, colorful dresses against the neutral brown wall come out nicely here.
have a nice evening

This is a marvellous show of dresses and faces and again a red umbrella almost steals the show. The surroundings of and old (or looking old) building gives an additional value to the composition. And I think you handled the difficult light very well. Their faces look pale but I wouldn't call them overexposed.

More from this lovely lady and her entourage, Takero - the reds throughout this frame are spectacular, and really highlight the image. The crispness at center is wonderful, though it's unfortunate that the women on the far right get a bit blurred.
As for the high contrast, I actually like the effect, which really makes her stand out in particular. So far in a few photos, she seems to have locked her focus on you - perhaps you've made a new friend!

You really are showcasing this amazing procession beautifully, you have given such a good feel for so many aspects, the boat, the river, the close up of the people, the procession on land from the old warehouse, all of these together are a magnificent collection of images that are a treasure for future eyes as well as ours. Once again, as Gert says, that red umbrella makes a beautiful secondary focal point, secondary to the beautiful woman who is the heart of this procession. Stunning colours and expressions, as always.
All the best from Ireland

The view up is clever. The composition is well chosen, with the bright vivid colors and clear dark background. Perfect shrapness and clarity.
I also like very much the different expression of the ladies and man walking along this historical road. Excellently optimized crop allowng all persons and the red ubrela to remain a great focal point. Sligtly diagonal composition works very well here. Well done.
Have a nice week.
