Interesting blend, the length wise view of Engyo-ji Temple with its classical wood art structure, next to the move poster The Last Samurai.
One of my favorite classical movies is The Seven Samurai starring Toshiro Mifune, and its plot was copied later and changed into a western The Magnificent Seven.
Thanks for sharing,

Another excellent, simple collage. I like combination of two related subjects. The view along the temple is superb, the deep DOF perfect.
Very well done.

Wooden edifice of the temple taken from a diagonal POV, shows well it's criss-cross walls, master work when built, Mikio.
View of the lenth ofb the balcony with greenerry on far, enhanced sense of depth.
Beautifully combined with the movie poster - superb contrast applied.
Have a nice weekend,
