Doorway in Udatsu

The attractive and traditional Japanese village of Udatsu is used as a film set for a long running TV ‘soap’. As this is not really a travelogue I hope I might be excused for showing only a glimpse of what the place has to offer. My main purpose in posting photos on this blog is to present images that have had time to mature in my files until they are ready to stand on their own two feet. So my main concern is whether they work as photographs, and only you, the welcome visitor can be the final judge of that.

  1. Thanks John for vising my site and leaving giving me such thoughtful critiques. I really like your own site, you’ve got great photos from lots of exciting places and I like the simplicity of your layout. I really like this shot too, I’m a sucker for silhouettes myself. I like the little hints of Japanese culture that can be picked out through the door and its exterior. I would say that maybe it could do with a little tightening up through cropping though, there’re some elements towards the edge of the frame that I think look a little unncessary. Great work though and I hope you keep visiting the site, I’ll certainly try and keep an eye on yours.

    • Thanks for your observations, they are much appreciated. I looked at various ways of presenting this image and still feel a little unhappy about it. Eventually you have to make a decision and I feel strongly that the central area needs space around it otherwise it would be hemmed in too much. Ultimately nothing is perfect and you have to compromise. Unfortunately it’s a long way to go to retake the picture!
