During the festival besides the busy and crowdy precinct, several the Japanese traditional dannces are perfomed inside by "maiko(Japanese traditional dancer)" as just entertainment. They are amaateurs not professinals but thier performances are so sofisticated and elegant.

Very nice image !
Slighty overexposed in lights as for my taste, but still very good. Thanks

The dancer portrayed in delicate pale colours against a background adding to the atmosphere, good work.

A nice portrait with delicate colors and light
Much elegance in her attitude
Maybe a little too centered but this is a detail
Have a nice day

I've always found those japanese ladies in their dresses! Their magical dancing is so attractive, so pleasant too! A real pleasure to all senses!
Your picture is excellent with the best sharp fg, blurred bg, exposure, colors, pov, horizontal format and composition!
TFS - congratulations!
Have a great week-end!

Hello Takero, Double shot for me tonight as this is your second picture for me. This is how I used to imagine all Japanese ladies looked, all the time. This one is a beauty and you have done an outstanding job capturing this lady in this pose. She is wonderfully dressed and exhibits great compusure in this photo. Great Job. Regards, Roger
