When people say Photography is not Art what they actually mean is THEIR photography is not art.

Hi Stu,

Brilliant composition on this shot, the colours of the leaves contrasts brilliantly with the roof.

Apart from the crud in the middle, it looks as if Mother Nature got your email about keeping leaf litter on temple rooves symmetrical. Flipping heck! Even the wind and seasonal foliage are neat over there! Awesome composition mate. Love it.
