I will close up this "Awa Odori" soon, but still have many stocks. I am very much sorry to say goodbye to them.

I like this selective close up on the serious young woman, nicely framed by the 2 others according to a very shallow DOF

This is a fine photo where you have picked a profile in the long line of women and placed the sharpness exactly right. This has become an intimate portrait in the crowd. The many straw hats, one sharp and the others nicely blurred, form a fine pattern.

The use of DOF is cleverly managed here. The colours of the flowers in the woman's kimono works very well to create interesting colour highlights againsts the blurred sections.

Splendid portrait. Beautiful expression of the girl so concentrated. Stunning colors

Hi Takero, excellent bokeh with good sharpness focusing on the face of the lady with traditional dress. The light control and natural colours are excellent as usual. Best regards, Tolga

this is one of very interesting "long-zoomed" portraits! I ask myself what this lady is thinking about at this moment? she looks very concentrated... and serious.
Concerning the composition, I might suggest cropping a little bit on the left side because that very dark spot in the top left corner is a little distracting... :)

Hello dear Takero-san
Fine focus on the face of the 2nd lady. The shallow DOF created a good bokeh both in the FG & the BG & isolated her well. Very nice portrait shot with the very typical hat on!
With Best Regards from muggy Mumbai

A beautiful line of head and hat with a fine choice of sharpness on the second one. That gives a nice blur arround her face and a sweet composition. Well done

I've been a way for a bit Takero, but viewing your photos from the past week...this is really quite lovely. And what is especially nice, is the way you've captured the wonderful colors on the shoulder of her costume...really quite beautiful and such a pretty design. Very nicely done again!

This series called Awa Odori is absolutely wonderful and I've found it very unique and beautiful. This last one is so eye-catching with perfect composition, excellent DOF and intensive tones. Great image! Love it!

I like this scene with the sharp focus and your pale clear colours.
