The Pungnammun Gate was built in 1768 during the reign of the Joseon Dynasty. Originally, one of four gates, this one is the city emblem, and the only one that is still standing. It is one of the main entrance points to the old town in Jeonju, a very historic city.

Creative way to present this majestic Gate. I like the POV and the kind of energy that seems to escape from the dark door.

J'aime bien cette idée d'inclure le passage des voitures devant ce palais
Cà transforme une banale photo de monument en une image vivante et çà meuble bien ton avant plan
Bien vu et bien fait

Very atmospheric post, Justin. Pitch black night and perfect use of the available light. The long shutter speed creates a great and somewhat spooky effect here. A bit eerie...
Have a great weekend, mate.

Wow, this is a different composition. I like the light trails, but also, if you look behind them, the defintiion and exposure of the temple are absolutely superb. What amazing green tones too. Great shot, congrats.
Have a good one

Great shot, I love the static structure looming over the motion blur. It's a great balance. You can see clearly the regional variations between pagoda's all across Asia, South Korea having some great examples as we can see here. I like the central location of the gate and the pitch black backdrop which brings out the best of the features in the FG. Cheers,
