Kinkakuji -revised- by dtownley1 Kinkakuji -revised- by dtownley1
Taken at Kinkakuji, also known as the Golden Temple or Golden Pavilion. A very well known temple found in Kyoto. Built by Shougun Yoshimitsu. He began in 1397. It's an incredible sight. It reflects and lights everything around it, and we noticed that it is perfectly aligned with the sun at noon.

edit - fixed up colours, improved sharpness and removed the black border.

thanks :D
I've reworked it, since this version isn't as sharp as it should be. The new version will have better colours and better sharpness. Keep an eye out for it ;)

wow, thank you :)
I really want to visit there again though. I was running short of memory for my digital camera, so I had to reduce the quality :( But next time it should be better!

haha. It was really nice weather that day though.
Lucky there wasn't any snow. Snow is very hard to photograph.

haha. Well, now you can say, "I know someone who's been there!" hehe
Yeah, we were lucky with the weather. It was the middle of winter, and cold most days, but we were lucky to have a nice, sunny, early morning :)
