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.

heads up, someone took this, edited this, and uploaded the edited version claiming it was an ink painting they did: refrainity.deviantart.com/art/…

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.
