I love the Ferris Wheel in the background. I can just imagine sitting on this hill that looks secluded yet hearing the carnival sounds in the distance.
This photograph is fascinating, awesome and beautiful! So delightful to look at and wonder about and perfectly captured here. What amazing things nature has to offer us, always something new.
I love how it looks like there is nothing around for miles, but you see the Ferris Wheel in the background. Very beautiful!
I can't see the photograph because of the large ad placed on top of it. Wish that were not the case.
The rich autumnal colours give a warmth to this photo that is clearly not warranted. The two people are wearing coats that suggest that the evening is cool. At first glance it appears as a wilderness scene, but upon closer inspection it is possible to see that they may have been on a romantic date at the park that contains the ferris wheel.
It is easy to understand why interior decorators use soft reds and blues together. It is as if nature deemed them compatible. My criticism is of the resolution. There are compression artifacts around the couple that are unsightly. If we were able to download at higher resolution this problem would be alleviated.

This hillside of kokia seems like an enthralled assembly of spiky haired individuals being addressed by the couple. The Ferris wheel peeking over the curved horizon is significant, like it is a symbol representing the kokia ideology or theology.
@Joyce Baskind almost every city in Japan has a ferris wheel...so charming.
@Joyce Baskind I saw it too.
