Retreat by heeeeman Retreat by heeeeman
A tea house on the grounds of a pretty shrine complex in Otsu, Shiga ken, Japan.

[EDIT] I decided to revisit this image as the previous version was really quite uninspired for such a magnifcant place. Hopefully I can sneak away from the group and visit here again in Janurary, but I doubt it :( I can also see how much detail was lost using my old camera vs my new one..[/EDIT]

perhaps if i were to stumble upon this place in the woods, id stay forever.

perspective , position and angle are good.
i enjoy the darkness and murky feelings from the colors.
maybe you could snap one with a punch in the face foreground object ( even a tiny gentle punch is nice sometimes)

great image!!
