A black & white image of the Izumo Taisha Mission for your C&C.
Taken on a photo walk today in Honolulu's Chinatown. For those of you interested in history this shrine was erected in 1923 and was seized by the City of Honolulu during WWII. The Shrine was not returned to the sect until 1963, approximately 10 years after more than 10,000 people signed a petition to that end, and almost 20 years after the war ended. Major repairs and a relocation of the shrine were completed in 1968.
I love that photography also encourages me to learn new things about the city that I call home...
But back to the image. I am always curious to hear your comments on the overall image composition and in this case I am also interested to hear your thoughts on the conversion to black & white. (Sharpness, contrast, etc...) Suggestions for improvement are always welcome and appreciated.
F8 1/640 ISO400 (don't get me started on the ISO...I was shooting in a shady alley earlier in the day and forgot to change the ISO when I went out into the sun )
