Next interesting portrait.
Curious face, curious costume.
Dood frame and nicely colors.
Greetings from Poland.

Interesting portrait, and a strange expression on the face of your subject, quite serious and in contrast to the costume and make up.
I must ask, and with the greatest respect to the subject, is this a man or woman? I ask because I read before that all Geisha were at one time men, and not the beautiful women we are accustomed to seeing today and something about the expression here makes me think this may be a man also!
Greetings from a very stormy Ireland!
All the best

there is no expression on her face, she is like a colorfull dummy in a shop window. I like the diagonal line of her screen in line with her left shoulder.

A striking portrait!
Excellently composed. The head with the crown, the paper fan with floral patterns and the hand are all placed in a perfect position.
Best regards, Paul

Hello dear Takero,
a very interesting and attractive portrait. I like very much the contrasting diagonals that make your composition elegant and solid. Sharpness, textures and colours are superb. Each part of the composition is so distinct that your picture makes me think of a collage. The performer's expression is most intriguing and gives special charm to her portrait. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Fine classical costumed performer for the rich details and your focus on the eyes expressed in good resolution and natural coloring.
PS: Hopefully you have or will experience the new Osaka graphic/light show on the traditional temple. I saw it briefly in our news and would love to see it in person...

another exotic portrait perfectly taken. The colors are fantastic and the lady's attire is a piece of art. Very eye-catching, great job.
Have a good time!

Bon portrait. Le maquillage important donne un aspect tête de poupée sans expression. Belle réalisation!

Hello takero - Your portrait includes traditional clothing and makeup which is fascinating to the non-Japanese viewer and adds colour and design which fleshes out a story to compliment the face. Your detail on the face is very good and the detailing of the makeup is well documented. Nicely managed and as always you reveal od side of Japanese culture that few of us are familiar with. Warm regards Rosemary

Excellent close-up photo with very nice colors, perfect light, very good clarity. The well-chosen tight crop eliminates all unwanted distractions. Superbly arranged in portrait format. Well done.
