The narrow alleys of Jeonju's old town, dubbed the "Hanok Village" locally, is a part of the city that retains it's old architecture and narrow alleys.
It is quite something to wander the endless alleys, encountering beautiful old Hanok style houses, that still serve as people's homes and also restaurants and cafes.
The food is magnificent in Jeonju and Jeolla provinces, the best in Korea for me.
This building to our right is the one I stayed in, an old Hanok house 600 years old that offers small simple rooms but a traditional feel.

Nice capture with nice architectural details which is supported by the glimpse of the tall building in the BG to imaging the peace within the city. The inclusion of beautiful girl gives life. nice capture

This is a wonderful view of traditional architecture. The girl is perfectly placed in the frame, too. I do find it funny that we can prominently see some ADT signs! Old and modern are certainly mixed together wherever we go...

It feels very good image!
The Hanok Village was widely known for its delicious meals and tasteful atmosphere.

yeah - go for it! - the empty streets, the visual "difference" of the places...
look at this DOF!!!! - this is a wise use of you camera buttons...
look at the girl to the left!!! - this is a proper composition to "settle" the dimensions of the image...
good stuff, here...

Hi Justin, Well composed image with several interesting elements. Oriental rooflines always hold a very strong attraction for many visitors to the orient. Good description of the unusual building style, built for cold winters and hot summers.Sharpness is good.TFS. Murray

by shifting the focal point to the right you have created a tension in the composition that gives the photo a special twist. I can't really describe it better than this - I think it would not have been the same if the focal point had been on the girl.
I was going through your South Korean series and I have to say that - although I am really ignorant of all things Asian, I can see some things which remind me of Japan - the alleys, the electrical wires hanging between the houses, the roofs...
anyway - good job :)
