seriosuly nice photos. #1 in particular has an important, dramatic look to it; infact, if the individual in the red top could be removed from the photo, it would make an excellent promo shot. And that sky!

As mtcliu has stated, could you please fill us in on the particulars of the dance?

Thanks for posting these!

Very nice series. I agree, remove the fellow with the red top and the power lines in the backgroundand it's a National Geographic type pic. I love the motion blur in the shot with the bowing dancer. It gives a real sense of place. And the expression on the dancer in the last pic really takes me there.

ok, a short description of the dance. this is an 800 yr old dance originating from a small town(tanigumi) in the gifu prefecture. the dance is held 3 times a year, feb 18 every year to usher in the new year and to wish for prosperity for then town. the other 2 would be during spring's sakura festival and autumn's foliage festival. this is as much as i can describe, the japanese is about hard to translate. i doubt that many foreigners would come for this festival as its very out of the way from the popular route

abit the 1st pic, i know the person in the red top should be removed but i'm not got in pp, anybody can tell me how?

Well Done!

Very nice captures! I like no. 4 the most, has a certain sense of moevement to it with the person 'walking' through the frame. Nice and tight. Good shot!

As for the tourist, why not try and clone stamp her out with the darker trees in the background? You can 'borrow' some of the trees to the right of her, and maybe stamp in some sky.

Can't wait to see some cherry blossoms! keep well.
