I wanted to shot the moment the hair dancing in the air of the singer who sings the sky at sunset ardently in the back, and I sit with my knee drawn up, put the camera there, and released the shutter in 1/160 so that it might bring her eyes into focus. The film of iso50 was used by 100. (Development directions of +1)
She is a vocalist of Japanese girls band "Jellarde", which was sometimes doing the performance on the street.

Excellent timing! I love how the hair is motion blurred, and the face sharp! Very interesting photo, well composed, lovely colour of the sky that makes a beautiful background.
Very well done!

Really good timing on this one. Nice composition and framing. DOF is also shown effective giving us a blurry background of audience. Fast catch here!

This is a very good action shot. Perfect timing for the hair and her eyes. A slight purplish tone to this, I think due to the Velvia. Probably Provia, or something even faster would have worked well here. Good shot.

Very beautiful movement, It's here a capture of very great quality.

Goos timing Hisashi.
Exposure is very good, as already mentioned shutter speed slow enough to show motion yet fast enough to have crisp details. Good background with sunset light, good crop.
If I were you I would contact the band to see if they want to use it.

Very nice shot Hisashi.
everything, the colors, the girl , the way you did capture it..
It also has to do with this fantastic fuji film..

I looked at the picture and said "Harajuku" long time before looking at the title.
Grate capture of the moment takes long and hard preparations, and you seceded to capture the moment with the right eye direction and the right "hair stile"
Tnx for reminding me this crazy atmosphere of Harajuku.

This is very well captured with a lively attitude, good position of the arms and of course of the hair. The black frame fits very well.

Wow.. Nice energetic shot!...I like the way you let your frame to capture her spreading hair & the focus on the face to show the moment....
The bokeh just makes this a choosy shot.
