" I wanted to be with you alone And talk about the weather
You keep your distance with a system of touch And gentle persuasion
I'm lost in admiration could I need you this much should I need you this much "
today was raining all day long , so i've tried something new .This is not the usual dA material but , that's why i like it s lot . a year ago when i was invited to join a photographer's site from all the japanese photographers that are studying photography ,i was completely devastated because there's so many awesomeness in there that i was just a stupid photographer thinking that i could made my way there. the older ones in the site almost don't look over the new ones , only we can make the new ones step up by voting and "faving" them . today i look over the site and i don't think i am that behind anymore. i am pretty happy that i can make good shots that even the most awesome guys in the site now fave me from time to time . the rules over there is pretty much not using much photo editing and trying to make them as realistic as possible. i am sorry that i can give the link to the site , but since it's an invited only you can't enter anyway . i hope someday i could maybe get some of them to display their works in here . They didn't like to share the works to the world though,i hear some of them complaining about how gaijin like to learn japanese and so , they always tried to do comments in japanese expecting them to reply , i don't reply in japanese to make this point clear . that's no excuse for them to not like worldwide sites like "flick'r or deviantArt . i am just happy that i have a place there now that people respect . it was not easy being a half-blood japanese making room ,people was a little rude in the beginning ,but that was over.
Gorgeous photo, steeped in layers of color! It's interesting to read about your path in life and photography. And I'm glad you're here on DA and that I was fortunate enough to stumble upon your gallery.
One of the best photos that I've seen in a long while. The darkness below the trees gives a really unique contrast to all the other, already extremely deep colors, and that the forest goes up so high in the background is adding a very wonderful amount of details to it all. I rank this as one of Deviantart's greatest masterpieces
I'm glad you earned their respect, you deserve it your photos are truly amazing, it's hard not to like them. I think everyone that sees them appreciates your work (I sure do ). So keep up with the good work
Rain always holds a different meaning for me than most people. Most people find it sad or dreary or kind of depressing. But I grew up in a very rainy climate so I always seem to find joy when it rains. It doesn't bother me like it does other people. When I moved away to a different area I was happy when it would start to rain and it made me kind of homesick.
This one makes me think of Chopin's "Raindrops" Prelude though. Beautiful work.
There's no shame in being a half-blood, although it can be difficult at times (I know it first hand - unlike me, at least you're able to speak the language, even if you choose not to!) Such narrow views are snobbish and outdated. It's art. If they need to use language to explain their work, it just makes their imagery inadequate. The best art should transcend language barriers.
Have confidence in your work - yours are some of the best photos I've ever seen! I love the composition in this one - the treetops lead your eye upwards. So beautiful
