Gentou by heeeeman Gentou by heeeeman
Lanterns at the Kasuga Taisha shrine in Nara, Japan.

A very cliché shot of which I wish I spent more time on. This is a very commonly photographed scene, and I've seen far far better versions than mine, so i wish i could redo this.

This is really neat but it woulda been beautiful to see them lit up!

They are only lit 1 night of the year as far as I recall.

Too bad you couldn't have been there at that time!

yeah.. I doubt they would allow photography though. Most religious processions like that they don't.

Striking, intense and very well composed piece of art.

A joy to look at, and a fav for sure!

You shouldn't be so hard on yourself, this is a great shot with good balance and use of lighting, especially in the foreground. And, personally, i really like the use of sepia.
