    Hi everyone, here're some night shots I've taken recently. From what I've heard, this is the heaviest snowfall in Tokyo in the last couple of years. Hope you like the pictures, and please feel free to comment or critic. :)

    Awesome! A side of Tokyo I've never seen. I hope you have at least 100 shots that day. I really like the first shoot, but I would have taken it without the sidewalk in the picture. The shoot give me the sense of loneliness/ isolation(unheard of in Tokyo), But the footprints in the snow pulled me away. But his boot are so cool, so I can see why you did that.

    rokclmb: Yup, I took them on Monday night. Were you in Tokyo too?

    Tyger: Thanks, I'm glad you like them! Yeah, I've taken many shots, and I would have taken more if not for the fact that I was totally unprepared for the snow. :( I didn't expect it to be this heavy, since it only snowed a little last year. So I was pretty much drenched and my head was aching like it was frozen quite badly, haha.

    Thanks for your feedback too! Looking at the photo now, I agree with you on that point. I'm thinking if cropping away a little of the background would help. Here's the cropped version, please see if it is better now?

    Very nice. Are these all shot handheld or are you using a tripod?

    Very nice shots. Ironic that just today we were discussing how much snow Tokyo gets.

    Thanks everyone!!

    redonyx: these pictures were taken hand-held. I was caught off-guard by the heavy snow on my way home from work, so I didn't have my tripod with me. :)

    #3 is very good. I seem to be attracted to bicycle shots for some unknown reason. This image boasts the unusual condition of weather. I also think the slight tilt is working for this shot too.

    If I were to change anything about this composition, I would only change view point by couching as low as I could to the ground.

    Nicely done.
