Taxis and zebra crossing; Ebisu, Tokyo

Ebisu Eki-mae, the end of my walk through from Shibuya. I was crossing the road to the station itself and on the island in the middle of my zebra-crossing I spotted a warning light that had a flat top; perfect for resting the camera on. Had just been photographing something in a dark alleyway so the settings were all set up for darkness, not the bright lights of this location. Two taxis were coming in from behind me which I wanted to catch. Didnt realise I was still on ISO 800. So, this has the rather odd EXIF of ISO 800, f/9 and 1/3rd of a second. Anyway, job done.

Nikon D300

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 @ f/9

Minor tweaks to light and tonal contrast in Photoshop.
