Today's her role was to lead the gruop composed of a portable shrine and many participants. She held a bamboo tree which had a traditional Japanese lantern ("Chouchin" in Japanese) at the top. This day was a little windy day. She paid her attention to the top of bamboo, lantern, so that light of candle inside lantern may not fade due to the strong wind.

Very nice this portrait with the subject looking high, partly hiding behind the bamboo pole.

Your portraits are fantastic. This girl looks up thoughtfully and with some anxiety. Out of this it is very pretty. Super depth of field and excellent color image.

Hello Takero. Another fantastic photo/portrait of this young lady. You do very well with capturing expressions and faces. Such an intensity on her face is amazing. Again, great job and keep them coming. Regards, Roger

Indeed she seems to be in concentration. I like her big eyes and eyelashes and the way her face is partially behind the bamboo. Good use of DOF.

Perfect detail of this lady contrasting greatly with the very much out of focus and over-exposed background. This composition is excellent and again highlights your ability as a portrait photographer. Tfs, Marlene
