For a mountain photographer, you do a great job with fast-moving people, Bernard.
Great set!

Cheers,

Eric

Thank you gentlemen, very kind of you to take the time to write these kind words.

I just love these Awa Odori festivals, you feel such an energy in the terrible heat of the Japanese summer (it was still 37C when I took these).

As the face of the drummer tells, this is very challenging physically for them. They are top class athletes on top of being dance/music artists.

Honestly, taking these is child's play with a D5. Out of the 3,000+ images I took in 1+ hour, I had in excess of 90% of tack sharp images, 80% of them shot at f2.8. Most of those not in perfect focus were still usable and had been shot with the 300mm f4 PF that isn't quite as fast as the 70-200 f2.8 E FL AFwise.

The challenge is secure a good location amidst the crowd, to withstand the heat, not to bother your neighbors (too much), and then from a photography standpoint to capture the best timing and to find pleasing compositions with the background.

Cheers,
Bernard

Bernard, I love your festival photographs - definitely fun for you and subjects. The effort and enjoyment of the participants is obvious. Yes, the taiko drummers work up quite the sweat  - we have a local troupe that appears every Labor Day weekend at a Japanese festival (run by our botanical garden, which has a very nice 14 acre Japanese garden with pond, bridge, teahouse, etc). It is always 90F , 80%+ relative humidity that weekend.

Nice tree, Bernard.
The history behind the connection between St. Louis MO and Japan: Two of the WWII internment camps for Japanese Americans were in the southern Arkansas delta region, with approximately 17,000 internees between the two locations. St. Louis happens to be the closest large city and was an important rail terminus. Post-WWII, many Japanese Americans found farm land in Arkansas and Missouri, and many who wanted an urban location settled in St. Louis. I gather that the Midwest was much friendlier to Japanese Americans than the West Coast post-war.

Our sister city is Suwa.

Another lovely temple image.

The craftmanship, with wooden pegs instead of nails, is exquisite - also long-lasting. Our local Japanese garden hired Japanese traditional-method carpenters to build 2 buildings in the gardens. That's one thing about Japan, they know how to value the keepers of artistic and craft traditions, with the "living master" designation.

I have no easy way to put it online, but there is a color version.

Light wasn't that great. I personally prefer nice B&W tones to average colors when the light isn't appealing.

Bernard

Agree. B and W with good tonal range beats "meh" color.

Well, yeah, b&w ftw, but it seems this is perhaps an application of shou-sugi-ban which isn't directly discernible in b&w, hence the question, unrelated to the aesthetics.
