Sunset from our flat looking towards Mount Fuji; Omori, Tokyo, Japan

Well, well, well... what a sunset this evening. Just a shame that Mount Fuji was hiding behind a band of cloud which, over the course of the 30mins I was on the roof of our flat, didnt move hardly at all. Anyway, this evening's sunset was hardly spoiled by it. Far from it in fact. I never tire of standing on our roof watching the view. The winter days when the air is clear here in Tokyo and you get sunsets like this, who could possibly tire of such a scene?


The perfect end to a pretty cool day, on which I got to meet one of my heroes; animated film director, Hayao Miyazaki.


Nikon D300

80-200mm f/2.8 ED IF @ f8

250 ASA / ISO

7-shot bracketed HDR blended with Photomatix v.2.5.4 [I can't get on with the new version of Photomatix, the quality of the generated HDRs is so much more noisy. So I've gone back to the older version]


Very little changed from the original impact of the colour as it was in real life. The HDR was made with a minimum of tone-mapping.


See where this picture was taken. [?]
