The initial destination of my photo outing with Paul Barr yesterday (the one where we discovered the workshop of Nishimura Stone Lanterns) was to visit the Nitenji Temple, nestled up in the mountains of north-east Kyoto, perched precariously over the ravine on the road over to Otsu.

After the outing, we returned to my place and I introduced Lightroom to him, and in using random photos from the day to demonstrate things you could do within Lightroom's Develop module, I happened upon the soft-focus creamy effect you see above. I liked the effect in this case, so I decided to keep it. (It's fairly related to what I described in “Funky Joy With Adobe Lightroom”, and close in effect to the “Artsy-Fartsy 1” photo on “Cherry Blossoms in the Rain at the Heian Shrine, Part 2”)

I'll post a proper writeup of the Nitenji Temple when I have more energy another day, but I wanted to post something tonight, so here are a few shots from the temple grounds...
