Interessant this one... Ít´s a very characteristic architecture from China. Very well seen.
Great angle to capture it.Good composition.

Very nice & clean architectural scene Chris. That are the people with eye and feeling for details. If I look this roofs I can imagine how men must be rich with imagination to make this. Well done & thanks for sharing of this one.

Beautiful. Well composed, the two towers in front and background are well captured, with a good angle. Nice inclusion of the praying girl too. Excellent crop, a very nice catch.

Nice repetition in the architecture Chris. Do you know if there's a name for this style of turning up of the rooflines? It's so graceful.

A well-seen repetition, Chris, one in the original size and the other one in a much smaller scale. Good choice of perspective, and the colorful artwork on the temple roof is rendered in good detail.

Chinese architecture holds a certain magic, and once again you've been able to find it. The elaborate decoration on the roof of the temple is something I'd like to observe a bit closer; if you have any close-ups of that Chris they would make great entries too.

Very good framing of those very asiatic roofs... composition is great here with the tower in the foreground!

Despite the not perfect scan, it is a very nice shot with many intereting details of architecture. THe repetition of the basic roof shape i wonderful. Good shot, Chris.

Good note and great piece of architecture. I like the visula effect that the little model appears as big as the larger building

Very interesting shot Chris, well presented with nice architecture, sharp and clear, well done.
