This photograph was taken in Kitanomaru park contiguous to the Imperial Palace. In Tokyo, now is the time of full bloom of a cherry tree. Many spectators were coming in spite of early morning. Along the route, many cameramen were taking the photograph of the cherry tree which stands in a row on the bank of moat. In one corner of the moat, many boats were at anchor. Spectators will row a boat and enjoy a cherry tree, if it becomes business hours. Moreover, there was an entrance ceremony of a university in Nippon Budokan Hall on that day. So, april is a season of entrance of a school.
The students who go to the entrance ceremony hall: workshop

I think this image is perfectly framed in pano format it is for the simple reason you have created your vision of this place on this day. As for the cherry blossom, it makes the picture for me very well filling both sides of the frame very well as good focal of interest, and we have good fg in the calm water and rows of tiny boats complementing the overall impression. Lovely soothing color, clarity and fine contrast under that clean blue sky to boost this image to its potential. Well worth recording, Congrats
