beautiful scene.It´s alway nice to see people celebrating and having just good time together.What I like more about your picture is perfectly framing,taken slightly from above the heads.Also sharpness in the FG is superb and the little blurry BG makes we concentrate mostly on the participants and these beautifully decorated carriage.
Have a nice day

Hello Takero. Thou art the photographer of Japanese festivals. Here it is the Sanja festival. I'm pretty sure that in Japan there are many more celebrations as for example in Germany. When I see your photos, I am always amazed by the effort associated with these festivities are celebrated. Even today's photo pleases me very well. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Une belle photo qui transmet à merveille l'idée de la fête.
Le pov au dessus des têtes donne une bonne impression de la foule.

Great picture taken from above the head of the altar carried on the shoulders of the procession participants. Excellent depth of field. I like the light mist in the background.

This tradition is spectacular, and we clearly see the enthusiasm of participants. The agitated crowd is colorful and pleasing to the eye. The light and colors are natural. Sharpness is excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day
