I am back in Japan (on TE that is) to continue my parapluies series. This shot was taken in the the extensive grounds of Ryoan-ji Temple, which includes larger gardens with trees and moss, and the Kyoyo-chi pond, which is particularly striking in autumn. the drizzle and the use of umbrellas accentuated the Autumn mood and enhanced the beauty of this ancient place.

One of my favourite compositions is discovering the main subject through an interesting and complimentary foreground. Ha, it brings out the voyeur in me
I like the subtle colours, obviously subdued in vibrancy by the weather conditions, but nonetheless a superb soft mood.
It's a very beautiful image, congratulations.

le meilleur pour la fin! selon moi...
cet encadrement naturel aux couleurs automnales est bien trouvé
vue sur ce pont qui est idéalement garni de trois personnages au parapluie

Outstanding nature photography, wonderful, in tranquil slight hazy atmosphere and fantastic colours. Impressive balanced framing and composition, the admirers are perfectly placed and 'shaded' creating such lovely contrast between the shiny umbrellas and the explosion of autumn colours! other point worth mentioning is water ripples that stand out. Amazing clarity and color management. Exceptional autumn scene, Hats off Klaudio. Congrats. TFS.

Excellent framing to show off these people with their umbrellas. It's interesting having the contrasting coloures leaves too.

Hi Klaudio, I have just returned from japan and for me it will be also unforgettable journey. Fantastic photo, the frame of red leaves and the arch bridges wiith the people with umbrellas. I like the composition fro Ryoan-ji very much.

This one is a beauty. Superb framing by the autumn foliage of that huddle of umbrellas on the stone bridge. The slight blurring of the branches and leaves actually helps to focus attention on the small group in the rain. The pale light reflecting off the water is a delight, too.

Fantastic composition, I thouth I would just see the tree but the people with the umbrellas right in the centre of the square frame really add to it.
Great sharpness and clarity.

I like how this autumnal scene is naturally framed with the colorful branches of trees. In general, the composition is very well balanced and includes so many nice compositional elements. Even the bad weather did well in this case. Excellent autumn-mood captured!

I suppose I'll have to go back next year to catch a glimpse of these colours - this year I was too early :)
very nice framing of that cute bridge in Ryoan-ji, I probably have a similar view but without the red leaves and the umbrellas :)

Oh wow, what a lovely photo!
Great idea, and people on the photo, wich usually ruins everything, here looks very goos and creates special mood.

a cool autumn atmosphere in rainy Kyoto is well expressed,
people with umbrellas look a little cold on the beautiful bridge,
but autumn leaves make warm frame for this scene,
the pond is well designed to be seen from every directions,
thank you for your excellent shot,

J'apprécie votre visite, Klaudio.
The audience gathered on footbridge for a poetical
"encore" before the last fall of the curtain!
