Photographer's Note

I wanted to photograph the boats and cherry blossom around the moats of the Imperial Palace, but I only found the place when the sun was already quite low and the moat in shadow. Luckily I was able to make use of this by shooting from above, through the softly backlit boughs. So I didn't get the shot I had hoped, but I think this is perhaps a more unusual view.

I have several similar shots (and indeed may post one or two more in future), but I particularly like this one because of the little girl trailing her hand in the water, as grandpa rows her around the moat.

I did a bit of post-processing, including a softening filter in picnik, to take the edge off the reflections in the water. I masked out the boat so that remained in focus.
