A Rainy Day in Osaka 3

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Lila from Hawaii, United States

Very nice. I love the black and white for this; in color I think it would probably be crazily chaotic, but the black and white tones it down nicely so you can appreciate it without getting a headache. great composition and a lot going on.

@Makoto: Thanks Makoto! Actually, I didn't often eat out in this part of town. But, there certainly many restaurants and things around there! Did you ever visit Dotonbori from Hokkaido?

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

This really tells a story of life in the big city. The bikes parked, the bustle of people, the auto, and all those umbrellas. A great image.

Very beautiful street shot, Daryl. I love it being in B/W. The contrast, the shades and the tones, all have come perfectly. I love the composition too.
