Seirei, Myokenzan 3

"Seirei" is a worship hall designed by architect Shin Takamatsu, part of the Myokenzan shrine complex.

Unfortunately I chose a stupid angle to take this so I got a lot of unnecessary details surrounding the hall which I couldn't effectively crop out, hence my attempt at trying to mask it all with the blurring. I thought I'd post this anyway as this was the only shot I got showing the hall in its entirety.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Interesting. At first glance I thought it was some kind of wacky multiple exposure filter. It seems like those corners would be a little difficult to use effectively.

Actually I think its a cool angel. The extra surrounding details just adds to the complexity of the building. Good job with the blurring!
