Apocalyptic sunset over Shinjuku; from the Bunkyou Civic Centre, Tokyo

I was back up at the Bunkyou Civic Centre yesterday, this time with one of my students. The sunset was extraordinary. It was impossible to control the lens-flare as I was shooting straight into the sun for this shot. Five-shot bracketed HDR with very little done to the colour. This is pretty much, apart from a bit of a shift in the tonal contrast, what the scene looked like through the lens.

Nikon D300

Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 ED

5-frame bracketed burst merged in Photomatix 2.5.4


  1. It's apocalyptic isn't it?

    Wht a stunning photo! I love it very much

  2. Wonderful photo. The hazy color adds so much to the atmosphere.
