Way up on the side of the mountain, I found this small temple. Took a series of different exposures, shooting straight into the sun, for HDR. The result is a bit whacky, but I kinda like it. What do you think?

Ah, ok, so the green shiny bit on the right corner of the roof is lens flare from shooting directly into the sun. Nothing I could co about that, think it adds to the mood of the shot. HDR shot with a fair amount of dodge and burn with a bit of additional color saturation!

    A bit scary in that the swastika The swastika is a symbol representing the Nazi party and all of the evil that party stood for: anti-Semitism, the Holocaust, hatred of homosexuals, desire to eliminate the handicapped and infirm, etc.

    It wasn’t always that way. The swastika is an ancient and frequently recurring symbol, found in many different cultures during many different times. One can find the swastika associated with Hopi Indians, Aztecs, the Celts, Buddhists, Greeks, Hindus (swastika derives from Sanskrit and means to be well), etc.

    Whatever and however noble its ancient heritage, the symbol of the swastika has been forever tainted in the West because of its Nazi association.

    Just thought I would share that with you. The shot looks good otherwise. xxxxx

    Very interesting concept of a Buddhist temple. I know when I went to Korea in 1987 in the Army I found the temples and the swastika and also noticed that they are turned the opposite direction than the Nazi symbol but a similar swastika the same direction with four dots is used in the Hindu religion, so what " amarica" said is very much correct. Still a cool shot!!
