This pic is enhanced, we were there a few nights ago and it was spectacular. But not quite so over the top HDR...

For anyone interested in a high-res version - I dug it up on Jeff's Flickr:

One of those love hotel spotlights in the background have ruined the photo

I saw the illumination there in spring. It was really beautiful. Last week I wanted to see the night illumination at Eikando (also in Kyoto), but about 600 people were lining up, waiting time estimated to be more than 1h, so I gave up in the end. Kyoto during a long weekend in autumn is truly scary!

Where's that beam of light coming from? - i saw it from the Kyoto Tower observation deck when i was there in March and thought it was in the general direction of Kiyomizudera but couldn't be sure in the dark.

Should be in Kyoto in late November next year, thus looking forward to kōyō

This does not look like HDR to me, just a long exposure time with a low F setting.

Correct Lee Vann, this was a bit of a longer exposure, coupled with high ISO and wide aperture.

gorgeous - makes me want to be back there right now!

I wonder how many millions of people have walked through this wooden temple over the years. I certainly did.
