Dancing in the pouring rain and in the snowfall is one of the most romantic experiences in our lives. How come they put themselves under the umbrella at a nice snowy night like this, particularly in Tokyo where they seldom have snowfall?
good shot B&W msde umberella illuminated B&W photo limited expressions allow to concentrate on limited moods highlited by given photo. Dark sky, streetlights, falling snow, a bicycle, signboards , pedestrians all composing real essence of street
Not sure that this captures people's expressions. They all look pretty expressionless.
Instead the punctulated light sources give an eerie warmth to the black and white shot. The atmosphere has been caught, which is much harder than photographing a human expression.
@J S don't confute the picture mate ,, the photo simply expresses how expressionless the metro life is :) and the photographer got excellent exposure
