Takao-zan A temple just outside of tokyo. I dont have much more information on teh temple right now if i get some ill add to the description.
Additional Information: Updated Dec 6th 2003
these pieces of wood have the names of the people that have donated money to the temple or domated money for reform of the temple structures of replacement of the roof and thigns like that.
what you see here are a list of popel that domated money that was used for 10,000 pieces of wood for restoration of the temple. each piece of wood here represents 10,000 borads of wood each.
The workshop that was done by norbert was strange in a way. I say strange becasue in a way I agree that it actually did add somethign to the photo. on the other hand i have a hard time getting around seeing the writting sideways. it was simple and interesting.

This is very interesting, Boof. I like how your composition conveys the illusion of a seemingly infinite wall with all those inscriptions.
Somehow this looks to me like a "road of wisdom". I tried an according WS; hope you don't mind.

nwoehnl your workshop is super! I've never commented on a workshop before, but I really liked your vision on this one. Interesting perspective. A big smiley for boof because of you.

I like this image very much, I thank thanks to Norbert's brilliant WS. I don't know why, but details are seen better after the rotation and the effect of endless is stronger. I guess it was different if I could read japaneese. Of coarse I like also the original one..

A fascinating image and strangely compelling image. It would be interesting to know more about it. IMO it would be worth cloning out the sky.

Very good image boof, love the clarity in this picture and slowly blurring nearing the end.
I have seen alot of wooden planks like this in Japan and ive yet to take a decent shot of any.
