Fushimi Inari-taisha by dragonslayero Fushimi Inari-taisha by dragonslayero

As mentioned before, I am doing a travel through my older photos.
Now I happened to stumble upon a series of photos from of of the many historical sites of Kyoto (again :P )

Fushimi Inari-taisha consists of many thousands of torii lining the walkpaths up the mountain Inari.
Just walking around is worth anything you did or payed to get here. It just has that special nature to it.

Maybe I went a little overboard with the toning effects in this one, but still, I think it brought out the impression I got while visiting.

It's quite a nice pic, but from my point of view, I would change just one thing. I think i t should be better to take the pic from below even bent on knees so that these red structures seem much more impressive. Another thing i should change it's the green balance, i would turn them in two ways: the first one coulbe much more greener so that there is a deep contrast between red and green, the second one coulbe to turn the green much more opac near grey so that the red is the only color.
Nevertheless it's a nice pic.
What do you think?

Shoulden`t be a problem.
As long as you give me credit for the photo and prefferably a link to the photo location that would be sufficient for me. Bear in mind though that the photo is registered under creative commons so commercial use of the photo for your own (economic) profit will not be tolerated.

Lovely, just lovely. I like how the red contrasts with the background. :D
dragonslayero Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Yeah... I got some comments on that red dominant part...

It does give me the right memories though. Just the way I experienced it.
I just regret I didn't grab a photo of the school group we encountered. Somewhere out there is a photo of a group of students with a 6'4" foreigner behind them! :P
Thanks for the interest and the comment!

Thank you!
Not quite happy with every aspect of it myself, so I'm going back for new photos soon.
Still glad you like it! :D
