This shot was taken 1.5 months ago.
When I check old stocks last weekend, I got this by accident. She would be a drumer on the float and this was the first time for me. I wanted to her nervse expression by all means, but she all the time escaped from my camera but I finally got her through the paper flower decorations. Sorry for my peeping shot to her.

The picture looks the way described in the note. Compliments for the steal shot with excellent focussing, blurred fg but sharp bg. The eyes are well captured.

Hello Takero - I rather like this 'peeping' shot. The layer of pink paper flowers add mystique to the shot, we are looking when perhaps we shouldn't be and the girl is completely unaware. Warm regards rosemary

Très belle photo dans l'opposition du flou et le contraste.

a mio giudizio una delle tue immagini più belle per come hai composto l'inquadratura e per l'espressione che hai colto sul viso della ragazza.
Tra le mie preferite,

Un joli visage a travers les boules roses de papiers, il y a un coté artistique qui me plaît et que je trouve plein de charme

Really good idea to use these paper flowers. You give an other dimension to this portrait, something more mysterious.
The pink is an attractice colour and the thumbnail is very eyecatching.
You were right to persevere!

I think that this is an excellent capture. I like the way that we view her through the pink decorations. An original and very well taken photo.
Kind Regards, Ann

Taut and focused before the show pretty girl's face. Japan is at all beautiful girls. Brilliantly planned in the image depth of field. Pink, fuzzy flowers are an excellent complement to the image. Colossal quality.

Hello Takero. A wonderful photo. The solemn and beautiful face fascinates every visitor. The composition is masterful. The rose-colored jewelry in the foreground looks like a curtain. Insgesmt a winning combination. TOP! Rgds, Wolfgang.

Un diaframma floreale rende ancora morbida una espressione che lo è già.

Hello dear Takero,
this is an exquisite portrait, beautiful and mysterious, really captivating. I love the rare and effective combination of colours, the superb soft lighting and the impressive clarity with which you finally caught this intense and intriguing expression among the hanging decorations. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good day,

I'm glad you found it! I like her serious expression through the pink decorations! You framed her very well and the focus is very good also!

A nice take with the innocent face, hiding behind the velvet flowers, Takero.
Focal length was on her, so flowers appear as big spots on pic. space', yet a well premeditated image.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Wow, somehow I missed this one when it was uploaded. Your constant posts are a joy to follow and all pictures are quality work. Yet, still, this one stands out. Beautifully composed, great pov & a subtle colour scheme. Excellent work, dear Takero. Thanks for sharing it here.

This is wonderful, and one of my favourite of all your many excellent images. The shot taken through the pink balls adds a real element of mystery, and her face and expression is so sombre and serious. Excellent focusing on getting the girl so sharp while the little balls are out of focus. Thanks as always for sharing!
Noel in freezing Ireland :)
