It is very difficult to take the straw hats. That usualy needs another one's help/.
This time I stole into the preparation yard.
This is a secret.

Wow! A beautiful shot...and a candid one I guess. I will keep your secret! Lovely light spilling into the area. I am intriqued at the men`s age. Beautifully composed and flawlessly done! Warm regards,

A great study of these two men. Superb capture, excellent sharpness and I like colour tones

For me more fun was to oserve the preparation for a parade. Later the guys were serious, but during preparation they were more relaxed and it was fun to make some nice shots without the crowds. nice moment. Somehow the watch do not fit here.

Hello dear Takero,
Another great contribution. Here it is the interaction between the two participants that is so great. Also the bg is good here. Great little note too.
Greetings from a (rainy again) Antwerp.

it's always a pleasure for me to observe your models preparing for a matsuri - your non-intrusive and respectful approach shows the "other" moments, those moments which will probably not feature on the more official photos of these festivals.
for once we see two men engaged in these preparations, which makes for a nice change :)
greetings from rainy amsterdam,

Sharpness, exposure, chosen pov, colors, horizontal format and, above all, composition really pleased me!
TFS - congrats,

A wonderful graphical scene and a human document as well.

one more time a very original picture
The clothes and of course above all these hats are incredible! They help us each other very seriously, love this scene

A detailed and sharp scene of a special moment. I agree the watch seems out of place. Cheers, Marlene
