I've been posting a lot of B&W lately, so here's a colour one to liven things up.
This is a sign above a temple doorway in Hong Kong... it's either the north end of Kowloon or into the New Territories... same MTR line that passes through Kowloon Tong, but further along the line if that helps anybody locate it.
I was the only foreigner there. A lot of Chinese people go there to pray for all manner of things; find boyfriend, get rich...

Not bad at all, I like the red strands blowing to the right slightly.
I would really of prefered to see only the sign, instead of the lantern infront.
But I like a combination too.

Excellent colours, Josh. The Chinese writing looks beautiful, as does all the wood work. The slight breeze on the lantern is nice. Well seen.

Strong red and yellow in this shot. Even the browns are nice and strong but the yellow and red really stand out well in front. Good sharpness in this, also. Good job.
