@kairospix: Thanks Kairospix! Yeah, you're right about the dark. I uploaded a brighter version but there was terrible artifacting around the border between the orange gate and sky that I could't get rid of. The only way to avoid that was to darken it down like this. Not very happy with this one.

I like night scenes and this one has plenty of character and atmosphere.

Sugoi Stuaato-kun. I like the sky as dark as that because it shows the subtle difference to the blackness of total darkness. It works really well against the stark red colour of the tori (torii?) gate.
