What a great shot from this interesting place. Also interesting for me to see this, as I have a finalist from Temple of Heaven this month as well - however with completely different conditions and viewpoint.
I like your composition and colours.
My best regards

Thanks, Peder. This shot was somewhat accidental. I asked our guide whether I would be able to take photos in the temple, and she said yes. So, trying to travel light, I brought my fastest lens, a 85mm/f1.8, for shots in the dark interior. It turned out that you can't even go in the temple, so I was left to capture telephoto shots of the exterior. So, like you with the rain, I tried to make lemonade from lemons! #10401405

Receiving an award from Better Photo is just like unwrapping a gift, the thrill is always the same! It is also exciting to be able to send my personal congratulations to each and every one of you and I look forward to seeing the gold though out the galleries. Merna
