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!

Ian Bramham from Manchester, United Kingdom

@Ian Bramham: Cheers Ian! But who / what is Mirko!?

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

You have desaturated some parts of the picture. The roofs around the pagoda on the left and the balconies and balustrades stands out in the picture. May be it is what you wanted to show?

@akarui: Olivier, actually the original was very dark and I lightened it, did some dodging and burning. I didn't apply any desaturation, although the high pass sharpening did drain some colour. I am e-mailing you the original for comparison! Thanks!

Makoto from Sapporo, Japan

Very nice composition!

Observing from West Cheshire, United Kingdom

From this view it is quite a large building..

@Observing: It is very large Mike. The balcony can get very crowded with tourists.

Thats a massive structure, what a grand presence it commands.

amos from Jerusalem, Israel

It's really tough tell if this is b&w or color. I love it!

@amos: Cheers amos!

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Thank you for your mail and picture. First I was not sure what PP you did as I could see still some colors...
Looking again your picture more carefully I wonder if I would prefer a crop on the right more or less on that trunk that we can see in the foreground and also remove that plant at the bottom. There will be a loose of depth but the picture should be more simple. Just a thought...

@akarui: Thanks Olivier!

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

That's an impressive building location. Makes me think of the Twilight Samurai.
