Thursday night at the izakaya; Asakusabashi, Tokyo

First posting after a few days of computer hell, in which I lost 90% of what I shot during August. I am usually very religious with backing-up but this was a brand-new external drive and it lulled me into a false sense of security. One lives and learns.

Anyway, was out with a new student last night, who happens to live in one of my favourite neighbourhoods of town; Asakusabashi. Loads of action down there, some great light and great street-scenes. This one was shot without a tripod, using my bag on the floor as support. 5-shot bracketed HDR, blended in Photomatix 2.5.4 and then tweaked in Photoshop to get rid of the distortion from the the fact that I had to tilt the lens up to get everything in, from my low position.
