As I was walking around the Shrine in Yawatahama, I came acrost many torii. This one with the cherry tree and the sign next to it was of particular interest to me. Not just the special shape of the torii, but the combination of cherry tree with the torii and the light. Ofcorse the sign did illustrate a sertain point as well. "May peace prevail on earth." A nice thought, don't you think?

The shape of the torri is interesting, and the cerry tree was a good idea, but... you have chosen the wrong side in my opinion. Unfortunatly, the light has eaten here the pink of the cherry flowers and you have lost most of the potential of your composition. My suggestion in such a case is to try different points of views to see the result.
All the best,
