    Big big success for this picture, which was for more than one year the most favorited, commented and "most interesting" in my flickr photostream. Probably one of the most downloaded and used with or without permission as well.
    This picture has been used sometimes without permission, misused and maybe even stolen or usurped. Which letter you don' t understand in the word "COPYRIGHT"?

    One of the most pleasant zen garden i've ever seen. It was so quiet and i was alone there, while, at the same time, the Tenjin Myojin shrine nearby was overcrowded.
    Slight crop and contrast enhancement with the GIMP for the naturally almost fluorescent moss and the rock's textures.

    Un des jardins zen les plus agréables qu'il m'ait été donné de voir. J'y étais tout seul et c'était très calme, alors que dans le même temps le sanctuaire de Tenjin myojin à côté était noir de monde.
    Coupr et légers effets avec the GIMP pour accentuer les contrastes des couleurs de la mousse naturellement presque fluorescente et les textures de la roche.

      Now that's beautiful!
      It seems like a movie still — and one would like to be inside the movie.

      Une très belle photo d'un jardin zen: et la retouche est vraiment réussie

      J'ai toujours rêvé de créer un tel jardin, mais mes chats l'occuperaient très vite :-(
