    This is a Shibuya view of Tokyo at night! Isn't it cool that they have a full size soccer field at the top of the building? I'd love to play soccer there, even though I am not good at it. Actually, it would be trouble for me to play on the field, who knows if I would accidentally kick the ball out of the fence and hit someone crossing the street? Okay, bad idea! Anyway, you can see a better quality of the HDR by clicking it, it will direct you to my Flickr page. There are a lot of other goodies there too! Back to the shot, I am not too sure whether I could have taken this shot without my friend, Travis. Here's the story, when Travis and I got to this vantage point, it had massive reflections on my lens! We literally took out everything we had (jackets, towels, backpacks) to cover up the reflection. What made it worst is that we had to hold our position for close to 30 seconds since I had to keep my ISO at 100, to minimize any potential noise to the image.

      A football field on a rooftop? Amazing! The feeling should be very good. In a crowded place like Tokyo, I think this should be one of the best alternatives.There are more places like this in Shibuya? Oh, and great job mate. Great picture! Keep up with the good work. Peace!

      Is it shot from a hotel or is there an observation deck from this building?

    10. James Chan "JC Inspiration" 53 months ago | reply

      Hmm... I am not exactly sure whether it's a hotel or a business. It did have a reception when I exit the elevator. But I shot it through a window. When you are at Shibuya, you should be able to find it without any problem! Just look up :) It's definitely not an observation deck though.

      Stunning! When I go back, I'm going to bother you to tell me exactly which building you went inside to take this photo!

      Also, did you get a pic of people crossing the street at it's height?

      Eliyas, sorry for the late reply! I did get a shot of people crossing the street at it's height. But it didn't come out that well :(!
