The Japanese tend to be a quiet people whether in crowded places like railway stations or at popular tourist venues. Regardless of numbers, the volume is lowered by half in comparison to many other countries both Eastern or Western. So at this time of day, even though there were several young folk around, the silence was not broken. I focused on this couple as they offered a nice balance to the composition

some time in the near future I surely WILL go to Japan as it is one of my dreams which must come true :)
So far I enjoy photos...
I like the mood of the scene created by the beautiful soft well balanced colours which only Nature can offer us! Yes, you are right: these two people in the photo add a good (and maybe necessary) balance to the composition - and they also help to enhance the effect of depth!
Wishing you a very good weekend :))

A lovely photo with a good balanced composition, beautiful pastel colours and peaceful atmosphere. The beautiful reflections, the couple and the textures of the foreground are nice details. TFS!
Have a nice Sunday,

Dado, ovde si briljantan. Računaj da si zaslužio piće i da smo ga popili negde čim je utihnula ova lepa svetlost. Romantična poruka je ovde vrlo lepo primljena. Sve pohvale i pozdravi.

The soft muted tones give us the impression of the serenity present in this shot. You composed the shot very well by placing the couple at the lower right intersection using the rule of thirds.

Your best Japanese shot yet, I think. The composition is well set up and the exposure is superb. I think the opposition of the jetty and the buildings on the far shore, and the triangle made with the couple, lend the picture a very strong sense of depth. And of course the pale pink light of evening as it tinges the clouds makes a great reflection. Overall, a very subtle and atmospheric photo.
Regards, and hope you and your family enjoy Christmas.

I am most amazed by the subtle colours and light which renders this frame so beautifully. The angular alignment of the edge of pavement, the couple and the distance jetty are all carefully crafted to create a lot of foreground interest, on top of the impressive natural scenery.
Best wishes for you and family during Christmas and New Year ahead.

Ciao Klaudio, This is a beautiful, delicate image, well composed & exposed, the inclusion of the couple an excellent idea, without them I think it may have lost it's appeal. I can see this sitting on your easel at home. Complimenti.
Grazie per i tuoi auguri.
Tanti auguri a te e la tua famiglia per Natale & Capodanno.

Yep I agree the couple give a good balance with the composition.
Great POV, great light.

Well composed, very excellent soft color tone and a wonderful scenery with serenity! It is attractive to have dyed the lake and the cloud in red faintly. And, mountains of silhouette style that is behind draw out an indeed good mood as well as a couple in front side and a pier at middle-right, I think.
