Hey Guys,

Another shot from Japan this Time, In Kyoto, during the Gion Festival (Summer Festival).

Please C&C ;)

I was trying to capture the emotion of the festival, the hustle and bustle of Metropolis meets traditional values kinda thing ;)

Still a n00b, will be for a while to come lol, pity about the Graininess T.T

I think it would have been good to get down lower, seeing more of what's under/behind the umbrella, and putting the focus more on the lanterns rather than the awning and building behind. Some selective dodging might bring up the yukata, dramatically improving interest. What unfortunate weather for a summer festival! Cheers, Tony


5D and too much glass. Mamiya 645E.

Hey Tony,

Yeah terrible weather :(
Still had fun though!

Great idea with the lower angles. I'll have to go back and try again ;)
I 'm not very experienced with PP'ing, but will give the dodging a shot.

Thanks,
Ronen

I'd have rather you gotten closer to the lanterns and seen more lanterns than people.

In mac's defense, it was the nVidia bug (common with PC's) that killed my mac. Needs a new graphics card.

The laptop was out of warranty, however, since Apple is such a great company, for these graphic card problems, they give you an extra year on top of the standard... So its all getting fixed for free! and they said only 3-5 days (inc weekend!!)

So, watch out if you have an nVidia 8600 series!

Regards,
Ronen

Well, Mac fixed my Mac, replaced graphics card/Motherboard within 5 days of me taking it there. It now has a new bigger HDD, and is ready to ROCK!

Excuse the size and lack of PP, as this was taken from a HDD caddy, havn't imported into Aperture just yet.

So is this more the lantern feel you were describing?

im not to keen on seeing those traffic cones in the first one. maybe try to do something in PP so arent as noticable.

and I like the second one, except the lanterns seem a little soft/OOF. and maybe give it a little more room on the left of the frame, it seems to be too closly cropped to the lanterns.

but nice photos, seems like a great place to get some shots.

Yeah, need some work in PP for sure!
I'll be in Japan again in November, so should be able to get much better shots (fingers crossed!)
