  1. I think this is an absolutely stunning shot! From the intricacy of the temple’s architectural design, to the gold calligraphy, to the red colouring. It’s beauty is even further accentuated by the boring building to its left. Thank you!

    • Thanks! I’m glad you liked it. You’re welcome. 🙂
      The location of the temple was very interesting in terms of the contrast between the old temple architecture and the modern things surrounding the temple (buildings, neon lights, billboards etc.).
