Shining Light of an Old Temple Photographer Takeshi Wakazono Camera used Caplio R4
Photographer's comments
The railing ornament of the old temple shown brilliantly in the rays of the sun. Thinking of the many times this scene has repeated over hundreds of years, I felt the weight of history.
Reason for selection
There is strength to be found in images that make good use of light, and I think this photographer knows light very well. The spider web on the railing ornament gives a sense of the time scale, and the wrapping around of the reflected light also expresses the texture very well. By positioning the railing ornament to the right, an open space is created that indirectly emphasizes the presence of the old temple. This presence creates a calm harmony even in the tones of bright gold. A superb image.
