Got a thin skin? Then look elsewhere. Post a link to an image that you've made, and invite others to offer their critiques. Honesty is encouraged, but please be positive in your constructive criticism. Flaming and just plain nastiness will not be tolerated. Please note that this is not an area for you to showcase your images, nor is this a place for you to show-off where you have been. This is an area for you to post images so that you may share with us a technique that you have mastered, or are trying to master. Typically, no more than about four images should be posted in any one post or thread, and the maximum size of any side of any image should not exceed 950 px.

Please note that image critiquing is a matter of give and take: if you post images for critique, and you then expect to receive criticism, then it is also reasonable, fair and appropriate that, in return, you post your critique of the images of other members here as a matter of courtesy. So please do offer your critique of the images of others; your opinion is important, and will help everyone here enjoy their visit to far greater extent.

Also please note that, unless you state something to the contrary, other members might attempt to repost your image with their own post processing applied. We see this as an acceptable form of critique, but should you prefer that others not modify your work, this is perfectly ok, and you should state this, either within your post, or within your signature.

Images posted here should conform with the general forum guidelines. Image sizes should not exceed 950 pixels along the largest side (height or width) and typically no more than four images per post or thread.

With a trio of traditionally dressed Japanese ladies.

In those traditional Japanese colours, red, white and blue. :rotfl2:

Their stoicism in these images is notable; this appears to have been some sort of solemn ceremony?

Thank you for your interest. I walked into the Brisbane Mall late last year and found these Japanese ladies on a stage in kimono attire demonstrating traditional culture like dancing and tea ceremony. I think they are part of the local Japanese association. I found it interesting because we were going to go this March passed on a cruise around Japan, which sadly didn't happen because of our current coronavirus situation.

So, no Matt these lovely ladies do not live with me. :up:

And I'll bet that you're happy that you didn't go on the cruise. :)

Yes, I am though I paid for the hotel and transfers in Tokyo and I think I lost the money. The intermediary agent that my travel agent used to make those bookings went broke at the beginning of this coronavirus crisis and the hotel refused to deal directly with me, the client. They said they would only deal with the booking company. But on the whole, we are happy we were in Australia when all the borders closed and airlines started cancelling flights. Scary stuff!
