The second day was the strong snowfall day.
This area is one of heavy snow areas in Japan.
One group is uusaly composed of 3 men dancers, 10 children dancers and around 15 orchestra members. Her part was flute. Even though the bad condition, she perfomed her role with much joy.

This is one of my favorites among your rich gallery of photos of Japan. The young musician has a sweet face, but very cold fingers I'm afraid. You've placed her right eye on the vertical centerline, a very good way to do a portrait.
Warm regards, Takero.

Beautiful image of Japan. Good and happy portrait.
To Japan, its people and its culture have a lot of interest. Especially of the samurai.
I see your photos in the Samurai.
Thanks for sharing

The weather looks terrible but the girl plays her flute with a smile on her face anyway. No snow can stop her from taking part in this festival. A fine street shot with a human touch. I like the diagonal created by the flute and the girl's left arm laying a foundation to the composition.

Hello Takero - Your use of DOF and close connection with the musician works very well here. The composition with the diagonal of the flute and good eye contact is super. Lovely portrait. Warm regards rosemary

lovely scene of daily life, the heavy snowfall and the cold don't stop the people from having a good time. The musician is defying the cold with a smile and looks into the lens very confident. I like the diagonal of the flute and the blurry view behind it, it has great depth, too. Her fingers must be frozen but they look lovely on the diagonal. Very nice colours and harmonious atmosphere. Well done!
All the best,

Great movement of snow in this picture. The DOF is very good so we get a sense of activity in the BG but can also concentrate on the FG. The main subject is super - I think her fingers must be cold!
Excellent image - TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann

Hola dear Takero
Improving your pneumonia?, a bit difficult in a so cold weather
Great portrait of the girl looking right to the camera
Soft Winter colors but what I like the more are how you manage to capture the failing snow
Greetings, take care

Magical festive moments under the snow you have captured.
A beautiful portrait, nice eye contact. If possible, I would give many more than 2.

Wow Takero, You should be very proud of this one in the snow. The young lady is unperturbed and playing her instrument with her heart and soul. Love it, hope you are on the mend, your health is very important.You and your family have a nice week ahead and hope milder weather on the way. All the best, Iain.
