I once did a search of my blog to see how many times I had used the title "Late Afternoon." The results indicated that in my Kyoto it is almost always just about late afternoon.
jewel piece of work. charming elements.

oh my....this is quite the visual puzzle...and an awesome image. It's difficult to get a sense of scale. Superb lighting and I love the hot/cool colours.

Beautiful contrasts between light and shadow! The textures are wonderful! Well seen and captured GJC! ;-)

Nijo-jo is one of my favourites in Kyoto....The detail you chose here is only an introduction to the beauty behind the gate, just a visual appetizer....

Can't get much more dramatic than this . . a real impact shot that makes me wonder what might happen next !

I have to agree with Eric, GJC!! I love the contrasting elemnts, shapes, light, and the way they either face or "oppose" each other...this marvelous image draws the eye in random patterns all across, up and down and around the entire frame leaving nothing unseen...as you have done yourself! I am not sure if the Japanese have a word for "Bravo" but if they do - I hereby assign it to you sir!!

A very impressive place to experience late afternoon. In case I failed to mention at least a hundred times, I love the old Japanese castles. This is gorgeous.

I know this place, but I have not noticed this framing with this lighting. Wonderful shot !

Funny about your titling. I've experienced that too. It's hard to shoot what you love yet come up with unique titles. This shot is stunning. It has a Lord of the Rings feel. Simply a great composition and wonderful lighting.

I would add: as masterpiece of texture.
