Scene looking over the famous Itsukushima Shrine on Miyajima, near Hiroshima, Japan. Always wanted to take this shot.

Beautiful angle first of all, captures everything so perfectly in this frame. The branches of trees are also peeking in, so story like
Secondly, I love the coloring and how the red comes out, also highlights the fact that in this part of Asia, red is a color of life and prosperity... beautiful!
More than that the other colors just give it a feeling of old. I really like it.

Those mountains in the background go really hidden cause of the light colors. but I guess that was what you wanted to do so... good work
Could serve really well in a gallery :)

The way that the picture is taken, suggests a calm and steady hand. The buildings are all given equal space, and the eye is given time to look over the exquisite handiwork of each, equally. In remarkable contrast, though, are the in-color portions of the picture, vivid reds and oranges in sharp contrast with the subdued brownish-gray tone of the rest of the picture. Of particular note is the structure in the rear of the picture. Its height lends to the eye being drawn to it first and foremost, while not taking anything away from the rest of the picture. Overall it is a striking and yet simultaneously delicate piece, one that is sure to amaze many who view it.

yeah, they're pretty unsuccessful as far as art thieves go, but I've been keeping an eye on them since I first caught them with a gallery full of stolen art over a year ago. the fact I used tumblr to get it dealt with as fast as possible (some tumblr users who knew French tried to explain things to him, some others who knew Japanese contacted the pixiv artists he stole from and helped them report the theft properly) possibly kept them from building a solid foundation of followers. I just checked them out today because I was going thru some old tumblr posts and saw they've uploaded more stuff and decided to check it out and let the people whose works I could source know what's happened, that way he'll likely never get away with pulling that art theft BS.

The composition is superb Nicely balanced structures with the natural background and the contrast of colors with the black and white makes for an overall striking image. This is very well done.

Its a great shot. The colors a very bold when left with just the temple orange and gray tone. Reminds me of when I was over there. Some of my favorite photos came from that area. Now that I'm home and out of the military I miss it.

The only sort of critique I would have for this shot is that the red/orange left in the edited shot is nice, but makes the image as a whole look very flat. I would have enjoyed seeing more of the depth this picture could potentially have. I would also suggest that you pay close attention to where you're placing your focal point. The Torii gate appears to be the focal point of this piece, and it is not quite in the middle. If possible, it may have been more effective to use the rule of 3rds when deciding on the composition of this shot.

Other than that, the image is clean and crisp, and the editing is well done. :)
