This is a photo of a smaller temple located near Zenkoji Temple in Nagano. I liked the way this temple's color stood out in contrast to the snowy day's colors.

I get a very nice sense of place, even though the photo is a little distracting. The lighting could be better, and the lack of contrast between the grey sky and white roof is taking away from the photo a little - might have been better at sunrise/set?
Also read your comments on sharpening: you definitely need a better scanner or something, since all your photos could be much better if they were sharper.
Also, I was just wondering if I could workshop this photo? I think I might be able to sharpen it a little, and crop it so the central focus is more on the temple? =) let me know

The Temple itself loks nice, it appears to be a little blurred, but that doesnt ruin the shot, may be your lens was fogged up Im not sure, but I still like it.
Oh by the way, the CHristmas scene in Nagoya changes every year, you can see my other pic I took 2 years ago in my Japan photos

This is a very charming picture, some melancoly...,at first I can imagine a pics made by an old glass plate camera and then hand painted..
It is also a pleasure to have a view with snow...not so often

Nice POV. Always wanted to see more from Japan. I will someday visit Japan. It always make me felt warm whenever i see shots from Japan.

a very beauty view of this temple, maybe a little bit out of focus, in any case this give more sense of softnes. Well done, bravo!

Interesting temple, very typical. The picture is very well framed and the contrasts with white are good. Congratulations!

a beautiful shot of quiet winter scene,
wooden house of the temple with white snow on it looks so settled and attractive,
and stone fence, panel and trees are also in white snowy perspective,
it looks actually so cold but the picture itself feels very warm,
thank you for your excellent shot,
