An imposing Shinto shrine not far from my apartment.
it must fill one with awe to climb those steps and enter in.

GHreat shot, nice compo and light. The sunlight and the colors, together with different viewing lines makes the picture very powerful.

and the detail of the upper left angle: it really achieves this compo

Ha, there is the lovebirds again. I didn't see the heart formed between their necks two days ago. Is this where people pray to find love & friendship? Beautiful shot.

@Howard F.: Ah, well spotted. In fact, the god Hachiman is a very popular deity in Japan. He is a god of the nation (and of war) but because of his power is worshipped as a sort of all-purpose deity. Today's image and the one from two days ago are from two different places, actually. The one from two days ago -- a place called Miyake Hachiman Jinja -- is actually a shrine to take misbehaving children so that they will become quiet and pleasant!
Sweet light on the pigeons.
