Hey, this is much better than I've ever gotten there! Besides, I'm surprised you could get this view at all because they're really hyper about anyone taking photos from inside the temple. They even made an announcement one time over the PA when they simply heard my shutter trip. No photos from inside even if you are taking the garden! You have to be on the red matting. Well, anyway, the lighting control is superb. This is a shot (through the shoji to the outside) that defeats me every time. I'm impressed. Thanks, too, for the nod. I really apprecitate it from one whose work I admire so thoroughly.

What a wonderful treat! Reading GJC's comments, I now understand how difficult to get a shot like this... Thanks so much Stu!:-)

Reading the comment of GJC I see that photographers have hard time taking pictures in the temples...
