I just finished a few fun days exploring Tokyo, it was an intriguing city there seemed to be an incredible mixture of both the old and the new. The streets were busy, yet very clean. To me it felt less stressful than other cities simply due to the non aggressive calm demeanour of most Japanese people. It was lots of fun.
This was a great opportunity to add the color and atmosphere of this sunset back into the photograph - much of the warmth and evening color was lost in the RAW image. I managed to bring this back to life with Lightroom, the main adjustment was with the color in the shadow areas which I warmed up. I also pulled a bit more detail out of the cloud areas and generally lightened up the the image.
I really enjoyed processing this shot. The raw image needed a lot of work to bring out the true atmosphere. I have added some subtle color hues to the sky and foreground.
I was very pleased with this new Hidden Pictures CD album cover featuring one of my photographs. This is my second collaboration with designer Jordan Gray - he has done a superb job of the typography. i felt this was a great union of type, design and image from two very different parts of the world.
