Tokyo Nights

Last image from this trip that regards highest japan buildings… I promise 🙂

As my latest post also this is taken from Tokyo Skytree, the biggest tower in the world and the second highest artificial structure after Burj Khalifa skyscraper

To make this shot changed position from my latest post and I turned to the east to photograph the long river Sumida and its surrounding traffic arteries. From this point you can see how gigantic the city of Tokyo, even from this height you cannot see the end of the city that is practically as far as the eye can see

Also here as in the previous posts I take shots through the windows of the Tokyo Skytree so I had to pay the maximum attention to the backlights that could reflect the lights on the window, to avoid this you can use a sweatshirt or a dark towel. In this image even something come through the camera on the borders so i easily cropped it



I take 2 different exposures (brighter and darker) to have the chance to make a digital blend. Using TTS PRO, this time I used fast blend darks cause the blend was easy to do and the process satisfied me

After a small cleaning process (crop, dodge and burn and fix white balance) to have a series of images rather uniform with the others, I applied to this image all the lines of my Tokyo Nights previous posts, so here I used the same color variations provided by the application of color filters lookup that I applied to the others

I increased the details using the High details filters that you find in all my panels and I also applied a soft sharpen to give more depth to the viewer’s sight. As final I increased the shadows to give more luminosity to the bottom buildings

I always hope you will find this usefull, I love to ear this from you!
