Photographer's Note

A follow-up to my previous post of the A-Bomb Dome and Sakura at night, this one was actually taken earlier the same day.

From the Lonely Planet:

"The symbol of the destruction visited upon Hiroshima is the A-Bomb Dome. Declared a Unesco World Heritage site in December 1996, the building was the Industrial Promotion Hall until the bomb exploded almost directly above it. Its propped-up ruins have been left as an eternal reminder of the tragedy."

I tried different focuses - first on the sakura then on the building (posted as a workshop). I'd be interested to know which you prefer.
