Yesterday it was the house, today it's the inhabitant.
A word about yesterday's picture (I didn't figure out yet how to reply to critiques): the cutoff off the mountaintops was totally deliberate. The foggy mountains add to the overall feel of the image, so they are needed: however if I show more mountaintops by raising the camera, the Byodo In building itself will slide below the picture's vertical center, resulting in an awkward visual mix.
You'll either have to take my word for this, or come to Hawaii and try it yourself :-)

As buddha shots go, this one is very impressive, the trouble with many buddha's are they are so big, so taking a picture can be a challenge, lovely colours here, and the shadows caused by the lattice work add to the impact.

This is a very interesting shot. I realy like the perspective of looking up at the buddha. Your colors are very warm and inviting as well. My only thought is that the area on the right is not really necessary. Although I like the shadows on the wall, I think the photo as a whole will look better with mayber a quarter to a third of the photo cropped from the right. Your exposure and sharpness seem to be bang on.

The Ws seems to be a nice improvement.
