I posted this picture a long time ago, but I've learned much about Photoshop since then. This version came out much better. This is from an annual festival in Odawara (Houjiou Godai Matsuri). Thousands of locals dress in costume and parade out the castle entrance, make a circuit around the grounds, and then come back for a (loud) closing ceremony. I found this boy afterwards with his mother and asked permission to takes this shot.
