Kinkakuji, the Golden Pavilion Temple
The Golden Pavilion was built in 1397 and was burned down and reconstructed no fewer than three times, the last in 1950. It
houses Buddhist relics. The Temple comprises the Mirror Pond and a large garden.

The gray sky is minimized by featuring the reflection. The tree island provides a depth cue to what might be a rather two
dimensional image. An asymmetric composition helps make a formal subject more approachable.
