    If I remember correctly they didn't allow tripods in this place.

    You had to pay admission to walk through, and it was a narrow path.

    I think they wanted to keep people moving, so it didnt turn into a traffic jam.

    I realize that a tripod and longer exposure would help.

    Given those conditions, I'm not sure there's much you could have done to improve them. I like them as-is; very moody. I would say just crop the very bottom black bit off of each image and you're in business.

    Thanks for your input. :thumbup:

    I like them as well, and it was a cool opportunity considering how well lit they were.

    The Japanese love to do this kind of night time special lighting stuff.

    The old guys here really go nuts over it, because a lot of them are hardcore amateur photographers. You see a lot of high end DSLRs and pro lenses in these kinds of places. :mrgreen:
