Great composition. I like how tall the grass is. I would have tried to not have any grass blocking the umbrella itself so there would be more emphasis on it; the long piece there is a little distracting.
all of photos from this man and his little black umbrella are good ones, but this is near perfect. This resembles Miyazaki's Totoro, which is one of the most lovelies movie character, which I know. He/she (I dunno, which one it is) have umbrella too and actually Totoro holds it same way. and the atmosphere of this photo is same as in the film: far away from reality, like from very nice dream. (Have you the film?)
thank you! yes miyasaki is one of my favorite directors, i love all of his movies, but my fave is spirited away! hehe. i didnt use film for this, this is digital, altho i'm planning to experiment with film soon
