This is the last shot for this sereis, I will close this file. But I remaind again that this drum performance (Go-Jinjou-Diko 御陣乗太鼓）was quite unique and impressive. And I was very lucky to get the best(worset in another sense) weather(heavy snowstorm).

This has been an interesting series. The men must be brave and hardy to go out with so few clothes on in the snow. This is another terrific action shot with great colour and detail.

Hi Takero,Another portrait with excellent work image!
Colors, sharpness and exposure are excellent. The timing of the movement with the super frame and detail,

this is even better than yesterday.
The horizontal framing enhances much more the dynamics

Hi dear Takero.Wonderful series which I missed initially and am glad to have discovered today. I like this one the most as it is dramatic and because of the rectangular format his stance is highly dramatic.One thing that your photos demonstrate is that ancient Japan is strong and vibrant in modern Japan and that your unique country will not become another American clone.Superb combination of colours. My compliments. Klaudio.

Hi Takero, This succession of photos are wonderful & show the beauty of this festival, you have captured the scene wonderfully with the shallow DOF & the excellent light, great overall detail, & TFS as always, kind regards Wilson.

Yes, the harder the weather comnditions, the more interesting photo. Sometimes the life of the photographer is not easy. I like this last one very much. Excellent composition, this time there is also pert of the drum here. Excellent colours.

The snow has certainly put a great sense of drama into this shot, as if the drama of the mask and the mans postion are not enough. He looks very animal like, in that he is ready to pounce on somebody. Love the grey colours too. I am never anything but amazed by your gallery Takero, thank you for sharing.
All the best
