This is the continuation from previous one.
I, of course, like beatuiful dancers very much.
But I like thier feathers taken on the back more and more. Thoese are so vividly colorful and wonderful for me. We have another Samba event this weekend, I have to re-schedule my agendas, I have a headache.

Nice and close portrait of a performer in full colours.
The expression is good, as Samba festival is about fun and exuberance, and this is what emanates from your subject. I like the way her face is framed by feather. The blurred background suggests movement and serves your image very well.
Have a great weekend!
From sunny Joburg where summer is back, or almost - at least, we can wear bermudas again and for the next 10 months... Yahoo!

This is a picture quite different that those taken of Japanese girl in traditional costume. But still, you've made a very nice picture. It's so colourful.
Well frame, very sharp.

Great portrait shot- full of fun and motion. I like the shallow depth of field and blurred feathers in the foreground wth the focus on the performers face and smaile. Conveys her mood beautifully

Belle expression de joie, de jolies couleurs qui illumine son visage bien pris de profil avec le flou bleu , un portrait plein de gaieté agréable a regarder

Unfortunatly I have no more point to give today.
But still this is another amazing shot from you . The girl is beautifully framed and trough the shallow DOV stands out so well.
By the way I was amazed and very pleased about your comment on my picture of the japanese girl at Meji Jingu. And yes it is definitifyl the same girl. Isn't the world a small place. So we where the same day in 2009 at Meji Jingu and photographed the same girl. It is a pity that I discovered TE only a year later. Would have been great meeting you there. Thanks to Greg and you for creating that captivating moment so long ago

Bravo a comporre l'immagine con questa inquadratura laterale che la rende diversa dalle solite immagini,
un grande saluto amico mio

hai veramente un buon occhio e tanto gusto :)
Belle ragazze e bei colori, un connubio sempre attuale, sia in Brasile che in Giappone.

Good eye catching photo. I remember your old photos of Samba in Japan too. Well seen. Very nice model.
This is my last message before my next trip to Poland, I also will have TE-meeting with Malgo and Craig.

I always thought that samba to Rio de Janeiro. but as seen in Japan, this dance has become so very popular that there are festivals of samba. Beautiful girl in a beautiful tropical attire and makeup. Best portrait in perfect quality.

another nice picture of these dancesr from a good p.o.v. i like the vivid colors of the feather and ''dress''.

Hello dear Takero,
a greatly captured and framed portrait of the dancer immersed in the music and atmosphere of the festival. The colours are festive and beautiful and their combination superb. The diagonals of the feathers and the direction of the dancer's glance give an elegant and firm dynamism to the portrait. The blurriness of the feathers indicates movement, a strong sense in the tight frame. She has a very nice smile and is clearly enjoying this moment. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend and enjoy a good rest,
Ourania from typical summery Leros

Kind Regards, Ann

What an explosion of colours. Your composition is superb here and I am really impressed how were able to focus on the face of the lady. I notice that the feathers on her head are blurred and you really did an excellent photo-job here. TFS and have a nice weekend!

The Japanese people seems to enjoy a lot of dances from other countries, I'm surprise that they love samba. I went to a country/western music event and competition here in Las Vegas and there was team from Japan! Nice capture of this lovely lady. I like the profile shot. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
digbymerry (3998) 2012-07-21 8:03

The samba rhythms with his scandice the world.
Japan is also the color palate.
Easy to find a common matrix.
Rhythm and harmony.
Thanks for sharing.
