This photo is taken in the old temple district of Higashiyama in Kyoto, Japan. My ambition was to capture a common street scene in this country, and if possible portray just a fraction of the colour and complexity in that beautiful mix of past and present that is everyday life here. The pic is shoot on the move in the late afternoon, when the sun was quite intense, making it hard to capture shadows and get the right contrast.
And please guys, critique away. I´m new at this - I need feedback.
