This is a very nice, moody image, well suited to black and white. The background (including text on the wall) is a little washed out by the light, but otherwise, good shot. Not much context shown, but would work well as part of a photo series on the temple.

Nice shot, capturing the light in this temple. It really reflects the atmosphere one often finds in old churches and temples. Some parts of the weapons are visible through their shadow and others have direct lighting which makes the shot interesting. If the weapons on the right would not have faded, they would have added some other strong diagonal lines.

The lighting here is incredible, the progression of weapons from dark to light and the Chinese characters at right make this even more mysterious. Great image.

This is an interesting shot. The weapon tips almost seem to be in motion (think of a revolving clothing rack in a dry cleaners or something out of Fantasia). The strong light contributes to a powerful image.

Incredible shot! Realy a photo to be proud of. I love the composition and the misterious mood comming out of the whole.
It is as if the objects are levitating in the air...

Beautiful, surreal image. The lighting, contrasting textures and movement makes for a very interesting photograph. Om.

Excellent image that brilliantly uses a powerful language of light and shade. Thank you.
