Before I went to Japan I had known about the works of Kawase Hasui and Tsuchiya Koitsu, two of the more contemporary woodblock print artists (i.e. late 19th, early 20th century). So as I gazed at one of their favourite inspirations,the great torii, I remembered that they had sketched the torii at various times of the day, at different seasons.
Since my photo had some noise, I used photoshop to give it a feeling of a woodblock print.

that is very interesting picture and I would like to read even more about it. The light captured here makes the photo really pretty and adds to the scenery. I lie how there are a few plans in the image and how they differ also in colors. The most beautiful ones has the sky - well done for capturing it in this magic moment.
Thanks for sharing

This is a very enjoyable picture from Japan. The color of sky is gorgeous. Also, the picture was very well composed.
I always wanted to visit Japan. The cultural, cuisine, and architectural...so attractive.
Thanks for sharing.

i like the light of your picture seeming to look at me through the big eyes, the well lighted woodblock contrasts well with the blue hour sky.

in questa foto non fa difetto certamente l'originalitŕ del soggetto unito ad una perfetta della composizione.
Una bella foto che colpisce anche per l'efficacia del gioco di luce e di ombre ulteriormente valorizzate dal colore.
Ciao e buona giornata

move a little to the left to separate the woodblock from the right lantern! Light management was very difficult, but shows options for improvement. A nice subject, I must admit.

Motiv smo već videli, ali ovde si se uhvatio u koštac sa teškim svetlosnim uslovima, prilično uspešno. Kompozicija je odlična, boje vrlo dobre, možda je prvi plan mogao biti malko svetliji, ali to ne utiče na ukupan utisak. Čestitke!

Fantastically managed the lights of the old lantern, and placed the illuminated traditional gate.
Long shutter speed caused a bit of a glare in excess - but this's be a minr issue when looking at the fine scenery, night shot.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
