The continuation from previous ones.
The explosion of enegry, emotion, stress and so on.
This weekend we can see this kind of dance festival at many towns / places.
I will be out for 1 week trip for shooting.

As always, a great capture of this scene that has not only the great light and costumes, but also the sense of pride and energy of the performers too. Very nicely done. I hope you have a great trip with the camera!
All the best

Hello dear Takero,
great movement, rhythm, dynamism and joy in this picture of a traditional summer festival. You've captured the choreography and the dancers' expressions in a marvellous way. Some -maybe less experienced- dancers look worried, the choreography must have been very demanding. Illumination is superb, the colours are lovely. You've detached the group from the backdrop and also given us a glimpse to each dancer's personality. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend and enjoy work and free time at the festivals!

A fine composition with good colours. There are many intersting faces here, all with their individual expressions. Some of the participants seem to enjy this more than others.
I wish you a successful week.

I am glad that the traditional clothing included the underwear :)
Very nice capture the repeated motif of the clothing results in an interesting effect. Men are also captured in nice poses.
Very well done!

Another perfect capture - your daily life stories of spirit and artistic expression always amaze me. My life in Japan was rich, the years I lived there. I was taught that there is great joy in simple perfection. I studied the arts of combat there - on Okinawa - well past the black-belt ranks (5th degree), and I miss that spirit, now living in the US and home. Your photo bring back deeper memories that just photos and images ... but the intensity behind them. Always well done my friend!
