    Beautiful shot! Excellent composition and superb tones....but where the hell is the rain? I can't spot a drop on either of the umbrellas :)

  • faisal on 03.10.2009 @ 09:08

    @Laszlo: In Tokyo, the umbrella is more of a fashion accessory than a utility. It was raining but when it stopped, the women decided to keep the umbrellas open. Probably cuz it was also very hot.

    She's so beautiful and you timing is perfect. I like umbrella's in shots and the fact that hers is the only visible face in this sea of them.
