Temple Roof • Nak San Sa, Korea

Peter Kun Frary | Photographer

A roof detail from Nak San Sa. This temple was in deep shade and required too long a shutter speed for hand holding. Moreover, the contrast difference between the roof and painting was too great to hold detail in both shadows and highlights. Thus, I used flash to fill and balance the highlights on the roof with the dark but intricate painting beneath. A little artificial looking, but I squeezed out a decent image.
