In Japan, while March is a season of graduation for a student, it is also a season of university announcements of test results. Although many private universities have announcements of test results in February, there are the National Universities the beginning of the month in March. This photograph is taken in the University of Tokyo in Tokyo Hongo. The successful candidate number was projected by the bulletin board before afternoon in one corner of the campus, and prep students and their parents thronged in front of the bulletin board all at once. For a prep student, it is the moment of seeing the result of a compilation of a long taking-an-examination life. There are some persons who are pleased with the result of a bulletin board, and there is a person who hangs his head and returns. A successful candidate will start in the entrance ceremony in April, and the student life for four long years will start. It is various, such as persons who are diligent in study, those who take out energy to circle activities, and those who work at a part-time job for life. Seemingly, those who come out to an urban university will also decrease in number exclude some prestigious universities, a local prep student's who go on to a local university are increasing these days. Probably, it is the cause that it is becoming difficult for parents to send living expenses to a child continuously by the economic recession in which this is prolonged.

This is a very nice picture where we can clearly see the young student's joy of passing the tests after the tough studies. You made a good composition by showing his legs as very thick and long and making a straight angle by the corner of the picture. In the square between his legs we see other students taking parts in the celebrations. This is a lively picture capturing well the spontaneous joy.

Expressive composition, really like what you've done here by moving close and low into the action merging all of them dominating the frame to add the strength of this action short. Simple yet effective and striking with the centre of attraction is focus on the main fig inevitably well frozen to register the fast movements of a joyful moments. Your split second shot is admired and timely. Great reportage shot so well taken, Congrats.
