This photograph was taken in Yoyogi Park in the early autumn last year. Although it had passed over the middle in October, the leaf of the trees of a park was not dyed still deep autumnal tints. I was walking at the place of the flower bed, walking on a lawn through the fountain front of a park. Some couples sat on the lawn and were enjoying the quiet afternoon of autumn.

This is a truly romantic shot from a beautiful park conveying happiness and joy. I liked the shallow depth you've used, nicely fits the theme. Natural colors and crisp sharpness increase the quality of perception. A great work, very well done. Thanks for sharing. Best wishes,

I always enjoy the shots taken in a park. I like the way the people are just relaxing on this autumn day. I still see the trees with leaves. Nice atmosphere. The foreground looks sharp and the background looks blurry. I like it.

Hello Mikio! I like this photo very much. It looks tranquil and the people look like they are enjoying the Fall day. Great clarity and subdued colors. Congrats.

I think you managed to convey the peaceful atmosphere you talk about in your note. The muted tones, the appropriate depth of field blurring the other couple in the background, the 1/3, 2/3 composition...these are all good features of your picture.

I like very much the balanced way this picture is composed, all its main subjects aligned diagonally across the vertical frame. There's a wonderful sense of depth, the gradual blurrying of the view is very effective. I love the subtle lighting and natural colours. There's a very appealing bitter-sweet atmosphere in this autumn afternoon permeating the picture. Well done and thank you!
All the best,

I love that sweet and peaceful atmosphere. People sit and let their imaginations in this environment poetic. The framing format and are pleasant. The foreground is highlighted. Good quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day

I like this quiet and peaceful composition and I also like your title. "Small happiness" sounds so nice and covers this atmosphere very well.

the pair repeats after eachvother on the presentation. This is so lovely and so lively. You composed and positioned it wonderfully to give a simple but good effect.
Exciting view of this small happiness.

Enchanting moment at the park, Mikio, nicely collected.
A bit blured background, but not disturbing the overwhall scene as people sit and enjoy a calm ambiance as the photo conveys.
Have a nice weekend,
