Salaryman on final approach; Omori, Tokyo

Having dropped our daughter off at school this morning, the missus and I went for a little stroll. This bit of street is near Omori Station. Naturally, I couldn't resist......

Nikon D300

Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 Ai - manual focus.

Hasselblad frame/border scanned in from an old transparency of mine.

Bit of colour jiggery-pokery in Photoshop with some actions I made to emulate film.


  1. That's a great capture. I love the mood of it, the feeling of it. The situation is really genuine, not staged, real.

    Terrific job, can't stop enjoying this photo.

  2. Steff

    I agree with Ilan, great photo.

    In fact, all your photos are great-they capture the essence of all the different sides of Tokyo.

    In my opinion, it would be better (correct me if I'm wrong) if you didn't edit so much. I assume you've changed the lighting a bit in this photo and several others. I also see some variation with sharpening and blurring. I think it would mean more to your viewers to keep it real. The photos themselves are enough, no need to enhance them.

    You can definitely get the same effect just using your camera's settings or lenses.
