Temple's Backyard

The Golden Temple – shot taken from its “backyard.” You can see the bling-bling gold plated walls better in the setting sun’s light.

    Nice capture! This is a very beautiful temple. Is this that temple someone burned down and it was then reconstructed?

  • Marie on 04.10.2009 @ 09:39

    The golden light here is fab. This shows the best in japanese architecture. Elegance, consistency and simplicity. Really well done.

  • SD (Aspherical) on 06.10.2009 @ 19:29

    I like how the lighting and wide angle both add to the drama of the composition.

  • Rod | BouncedPhoton on 08.10.2009 @ 19:49

    Stunning shot Faisal. Golden walls are definitely better looking in the setting sun and surrounding garden plays a nice role of a natural vignetting.

  • Sylvain on 11.10.2009 @ 16:26

    Wonderful light and exposure. I love the composition of the scene. Very nice building.
