    I like the square crop. The empty foreground and the shallow dof make it even more interesting. Well done shot.

    It's one of my ambitions to get to Japan, fingers crossed that manage it. Sometime. Meanwhile I'll sit and enjoy your pics

    I like pictures where the composition is a little-off-the-wall. Love the red and grey tones, works really well.

    Japan's the place to be! I think I would go wild & uncontrolled there with my camera! Good composition and tones.

    i imagined tea houses to be neat and clean.
    pillows to sit on, the floor swept.
    the red benches look like tables
    and lanterns are bathed in moonlight.

    I like the novel placement of the benches in the frame. The two color image is very attractive.
