I went to the Furumine Shrine after school one day; it's quite out of the way up a valley, but not so far from the small school I visit occasionally. It was very nice weather after the morning rain. When I went inside the shrine building (it's quite a large place), I realised I had been there before. In the winter of 1994-95 when I visited Japan, my friend took me to Kanuma but the museum we were going to was closed that day. So we went up to this shrine, recognisable by its tengu statues. Funny thing, I've been meaning to ask her where the shrine is that we visited way back then.

to me this is overexposed and you lost alot of your contrast with the bright full sun...but in the editing you could correct that and make your overall tone look richer

For some reason I keep thinking green would've been better, but that just may be my idea of Japanese Gardens. The composition and performance couldn't have been better!
