I shot this at the 06' Nabuta festival in Aomori Japan. Its pretty much Japan's biggest festival every year. They roll these things down the street, and dance+play music. Large quantities of alcohol are usually involved as well lol. These are made from paper, and are lit from the inside. Easily one of the coolest things I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. I feel this was my best and most interesting shot of the night. I welcome any advice on what I could have done different when shooting or editing this. EOS 30D/EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 35mm f/5 1/50th sec Iso-200 Handheld I did not use a tripod because it was very crowded there that night. I stepped out into the street (into the path of this thing) for just a few seconds to clear my foreground of people and get the shot.
