Twilight at Kamigamo Shrine, Kyoto, in Autumn. The lantern (tourou) stood out due to low light, but there was still enough natural light to be able to photograph the red leaves too.

A beautiful picture. To me it captures the calm serenity of Japan.

Good job balancing the natural and artificial light sources. I really like your composition, too, which is almost abstract, but communicates some very iconic imagery of Kyoto and Japan in general. Great travel shot.

Just the way I always have imagined Japan.
Very, very attractive work!...

Brilliant! I wish I had taken this. Into my "favorites" this goes.
I've been to Japan three times, but I don't remember it looking this good. :)

Such a perfect classic shot of Japan. I really wanted to admire such a sight one day.

A wonderful picture that captures Japan in the surreal way that it is. The lamp emmitting warm light in the cool end of the day with the changing leaves sets a mood

THis is a beautiful shot. Like Sam said, you did a good job balancing the natural and artificial light sources. Full of serenity.
I added it to my favorites.

A very beautiful photo. Rich colors and a lovely setting. A photo that is a quintessential Kyoto scene. Very nicely done.

Amazing. I love the contrast of the red and warm yellow light against the blue.

I had to think of the movie; raise the red lantern.
Nice compo and light and atmosphere.
