No. 3 is my pick, the second is too tight of a crop imo, the tuning pegs should have been included. The first does not portray a very festive happening.

how colorful are the kimonos, i think that would have added to the image
agree with douter, bad crop on #2.
#1 is a snapshot

I knew I'd get some heat for converting it to B&W but just wanted to try something different with Japanese festivals and hoping the photos would be a little more powerful. . Also the sunlight was harsh and I wasn't not too pleased with the tone because of that. I'm not very good in post processing like most folks here so I converted it to B&W instead.

The first was not meant to possess action but to show the beauty of little Tokyo.

Agree with the crop being too tight on #2 but there was too much distraction on the ladies left side so I had to crop.

Appreciate your input. Alain
