You can see many stone Buddhist images inside the temple in Japan. They are of course sacred but seeming some intersting. Some have cap. Undre the fine weather with full blossoms of SAKURA, they seem to be happy.

Fine vibrant foreground colors against the wonderful spring background. Love the low angle and fine details in the frame.

Good Morning Takeo,
This is really fabulous. An image that conveys joy and happiness. I very much liked the textures on the faces of the Buddhist images, the colors are amazingly vibrant and well defined. They seem to enjoy the sunlight under the beautiful Sakura tree. Great work my friend. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice Sunday.

Hello dear Takero,
a marvellous picture which immediately evokes feelings of joy, peacefulness and tenderness. Your point of view was fine and you composed a very interesting and effective image that gives us a close look at the charming and unusual statues as well as at the whole sacred monument. The diagonal division of the frame offers dynamism and contrasts the wonderfully captured textures of the stone with the delicate sakura. I love the clarity, the lovely lighting, superb colours and contrasts. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day and week,

Hello dear Takero
It's always great to see your pictures posted here.
Buddhism and sakura - what a fine combination under the sun! Great pov and excellent focus on those big round round cheeks up front. The knitwear is a cute and colourful addition.
Greetings from a hesitant Antwerp.

This photo is very nice, the Buddha seems to be happy as you say. The background is perfect, the cherry and the blue sky contrasting with the red hats of the statues.
The idea of not using a high depth of field is correct, because the image is full of details.
One small note:
I would open more the aperture to isolate the subject from other statues.
Have a nice day, greetings from Italy!

Hello Takero. Another of your beautiful photo series of festivals in Japan. Interestingly, as here, the stone figures in the party have been included. Overall, well seen and presented. Rgds, Wolfgang.

I like the colours and fun in this picture. A super POV and I like the way that the sakuras are like umbrellas over the 'happy Buddha'.
Excellent quality - TFS.

Bonsoir dear Takero
A splendid light for this scene! I like the shooting angle and how you've presented these special sculptures, with the lovely blurred sakura making for an excellent BG! The colours and stone/woollen hat textures are nicely rendered.
Have a nice evening

Here we have something I would really like to photograph! The sculptures are just great with the flowers and red caps. I like your low pov and the way you put the focus on the first one, leaving the sakuras in the blurred background. Nice work!
