Himeji castle, one of the few original castle left that did not get bomb to the ground in WW II. A visit to Japan is uncomplete without a visit to this magnificent castle.

The photo is clear and sharp and neatly done. But I can't like it too much because it's not so unique. I often stumble upon similar situations where you try to get the picture of large structure and the rest of what's in the frame is discarded.

Compared to so many straight-on castle shots, this is unique for me, with the outline of the roof at right. The castle wall at bottom serves as a nice base to highlight the main castle, and the blooming sakura tree adds another Japanese cultural element to the scene.

I agree with Adam. This is unique compared to many similar photos. It would have been easy to be put off taking this photo with the dirty wall at the bottom, but to me this makes this photo. It adds to the interest of the "base". The understated sakura tree too works very well. Nicely composed and exposed.

Original angle, I like it.
