Dusk Falls Over Tokyo Bay & Rainbow Bridge, from Daiba Fort: Tokyo, Japan

I went down to Odaiba with my son this afternoon, scouting for a location for the next group model shoot/class we are organising for this Sunday. The old Daiba Fort is an amazing spot and the Rainbow Bridge runs almost right up next to it. The fort was originally built in the 1860s to defend Tokyo upon the return of Admiral Perry's 'black ships', but never got used in anger. Lovely place for a walk, will prove to be a superb location for our shoot on the weekend and it's a superb spot to watch the sun go down on Tokyo and then watch the city's lights come on.

Slight post-pro in Photoshop: a little burning and dodging to even out the brightness from making the HDR, slight tweak of blue and red channels.
