I Photographed Japan During The Rainy Season And Some Pics Look Like Paintings

I photographed Japan during the rainy season. I wanted my pictures to evoke emotion like Japanese paintings do.

Enjoy the beautiful season of rain through my photographs!

Is a pond of Gifu Prefecture has become a hot topic in Japan. It is famous for its resemblance to the pond of Monet. :)

Some people are saying these are photoshopped, I'm not sure. All I know is Japan's beauty is undeniable. I would love to see for myself!

Yes, many are Photoshopped but NOT to trick anyone as it's been done selectively and tastefully. Things like muting some of the colours (or using grey scale) on parts of a photo in order to highlight colours. There's nothing 'phony' or cheating of what the photographer did but turning the photos into works of art and beauty!

They don't need to look like paintings to be beautiful -- as these are. You have a good sense of composition, color, and balance, making all of these pleasing to the eye and the mind.
