    Wow, really nice range of shots there mate.

    7, 11 and 15 really stand out for me.

    7 - Like the focus, i've come to believe the term is bokeh?

    11 - really like the composition

    15 - Like the juxtaposition between modern (tiny Japanese car) vs tradition garb.

    Really nice work.

    thanks guys i had an amazing time in Kyoto, as i was just walking the streets i realised that in every direction i turned there was something extremely beautiful just staring at me. It was just so scenic, and the contrast between traditional culture and modern day society just blew me away!

    I'm so glad that i had the opportunity to do one of my long held dreams to travel throughout Japan and then to photograph it.

    beautiful photos! my faves are #2 and #4.

    with #1 and #7 i find it a bit distracting to have an object chopped in half... more so for #7, a slightly closer crop would mean only full japanese characters remain. just a small thing.

    11 is probably the best out of all, since Geisha is one of the most symbol of Kyoto... :thumbup:

    i'm in love with japan too. after looking at your post i booked a flight. lol

    i usually go once or twice a year and your photos gave me the itchy feet.

    as a visitor i'm simply amazed how new and old seem to get along so well, you kind of take it for granted.

    love the shots.

    Nice series... I still wish I wasn't sick as a dog during my trip there. ~_~

    11 is my favourite. Nice contrast of the browns. ^_^

    yeah i was so hoping it would snow whilst i was there.. but to no avail.. Snow definately would have added another dimension in Kyoto.

    Very nice.
    I love how crisp the images are.
    What camera and lens(es) did you use to capture these?
