The 3 days mourning for the 70,000 dead & missing in China, from the May 12 earthquake, has now finished. This was taken in May last year, near Xi'an, in neighbouring Shaanxi province, northeast of Chengdu. I'll look up the name of the temple, & edit later. I've removed a telecom tower at left, which spoilt the composition, imho.

Good point of view on this lovely architecture. The composition suits the vertical frame well. Very nice colours. The part of the roof in the immediate foreground looks ever so slightly out of focus to my eyes but does not detract from the overall scene.

Thank you for to think at the people from China, 70.000 dead and missing through the earthquake, maybe a lot more!
I like this specially roof with the difference decorations, this is a artwork.

It is amazing to see how much effort they put into decorating, even the roof pans are small pieces of art!
I like the fine feeling of depth in the composition, I also notice the rich colours and sharp fine details both front and back...

Amusant parallèle entre les pointes de cet édifices et la forme du sapin. C'est bien vu.

Hi Chris, I would never have thought of taking a photo with such an angle and yet it works pretty well ! In a rather narrow courtyard I guess... Interesting and beautiful in the same time, with such happy colours !

This is a really great picture. Your composition is really good from your higher point of view. I also really like the colours here!
Very well done!
