A very hot summers day, in a quiet sidestreet of Hakata precinct, Fukuoka City. I liked the traditional 'Zen' architecture & tapering linear perspective converging at right.

A nice view of this pleasing Japanes architecture as it appears over the top of the diagonally placed receding wall. Good contrast between these buildings and the western style blocks in the distance.

Good use of perspective to carry the eye down the street. It looks pristine and the tops of the houses with the Japanese aarchitecture are intriguing.

wow, clear, sharp and a perspective for a bright foreground which takes the eye. The change to the houses and green works excellent and the last layer with the blue sky is very good for this. Great simple composition in excellent way.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

Wow ... what a contrast ... aptly titled! Somehow predominantly white foreground worked well for this composition ... it makes the viewer concentrate on the 'zen' architecture. Well captured and composed. Well done ... tfs.

good, sharp architectural shot with strong perspective. normally I wouldn't like overexposure, but the white out here seems to work pretty well, showing the cleaniness of the place and the nice weather. very well taken.

Sharp clear colours, and I'm impressed by the fine exposure of the white parts in bright sunlight!
Clean and simple composition, dominated by fine lines...

Interesting use of the motif Chris with the almost white empty part only presenting the fine houses on the roof level. Nice place it seems for the more established ones..

Classic temple, and a great perspective too. I like the incredible brightness of the street, which doesn't appear grey as it might if you didn't get the metering right. Nice view down the street too. Well done!

Hi Chris. Architype Japan, so clean and tidy! Good perspective without the normally everpresent wires. Good cropping to show the main theme. TFS. Murray.

great shot with good color and detail. nice contrast of color and saturation. a mood of solitude prevails in this shot.

Sterile in this white. I would have maybe did a quick tweak in shadows/highlights to tone down that white. But no biggie, the compo is pleasing.

Very bright town scape. Like a Okinawan village. I didn't know that a TERAMACHI (Temple quarter) survives in a big city such as Fukuoka. Thanks!

Very nice shot under a very strong sunlighting I supose. Excellent colors. Nice color on the sky despite the harsh light.

A neat image with the beautiful Japanese roofs, the perspective along the walls which gives a sense of depth to your photo. The color from the road and wall are well exposed too.

Hola dear Chris
So, also Japan and the view of the japanes architecture and great perspective given by the diagonal wall
Like the mix of houses and vegetation and how you manage to capture a white kind of street without burning it
Well done, tfs
