Having a rest in the doorway of one of the gigantic doors of one of the buildings found in the grounds of Nanzen-Ji, a 13th century temple complex in Kyoto.
Most of the present buildings date back to the 17th century after destruction in civil war in the 15th century.

You're capturing well this scene by a good composition, so it's interesting and impressive to see big wooden door of entrance gate. It's impressive in spectacle that elderly man is sitting in the doorway with a thoughtful face, too.
It seems to lack the exposure a bit, techinically.
I tried a workshop, however it's my personal taste and I hope that you don't mind.

Hello, you captured the light from the side in such a way as to highlight the man in the center. The real highlight though are the ancient doors. What surprising photo! Good colors, light and composition.
