This is a drum performance basicaly. Dance element is strong but they beat drum by two plectrums firecely. But of cpuse plectrums are also very important padgets for them.

Hi dear Takero,
We do not see the drums but imagine how they beat them. Very impresive hands of the drummer, red from cold. Very nice colours - beige of the dress and pale blue of the background.

Hi there Takero - Another super shot from you. Very good, almost diagonal framing and pin sharp! Best wishes Rosemary

Hello Takero. Another striking photo of your beautiful country. The masks are very expressive - really scary. As I said, a good shot. Rgds, Wolfgang.

Still a beautiful catch of sight on this ceremony. Framing on your subject is perfect and the focus with the flocculent background is superb giving much relief and of intensity to this ritual. Good glance once more, Takero cheer.
With all my friendships and with soon,

Your present series is nothing but outstanding
Again an expressive portrait of an actor in his role with a splendid bokeh on the snowy blueish BG

My dear Takero-san!
Fantastic picture indeed! The devilish mask, the poise of the man, the snowflakes in the BG...wow! an amazing picture. The timing of your capture is nothing short of brilliant. Excellent!

Great capture, Takero! It is always a pleasure to see your pictures! I only wish I could read a little bit more about the places you take them and about the events they cover.
Great job, keep it up!

Seems that I missed your photos here on TE. I did have much time today browsing on gallery of my favorite TE members. I Had the chance to browse yours as well. Wow, I was stunned seeing all those photographs of people you've captured. I was stunned seeing this one!
This image is really dynamic, full of spirit and character. Perfectly captured-the timing and all those technicalities. Excellent DOF and POV! Love the blurs of the snow, and the BG is just amazing. The colors are beautifully exposed too and the image is perfectly lit. Great light management! This is just exquisite!
Thanks for sharing this one!
Warmest regards from a Rainy Manila!
