Dragons are very popular in China temples. The five clawed golden dragon was a symbol of the Chinese emperors.
There are two dragons sculptured in stone at the ridge of a roof of temple.I shot them as two dragons chased.

This is the most extraordinary roof decoration I have seen in a quite long time. My current posting is about the same subject but the motifs on my photos are very poor compared to what you show today. It is an excellent picture and I love it a lot. Well done.

I like how you composed this as the two dragons chasing-It works. Very nice clarity. It looks more like an illustration than a statue against the sky. I like the effect, and much better frame this time.
