This photograph is taken from the platform of Maihama Station. I visited the house of the friend who lives in Maihama, and had in the middle of going home. Although time was turning around 6:30 in the evening, it is still bright in outside. As for this time, since the summer solstice when the length of daytime in a year is the longest will be on June 21 this year, it is late to become dark. Although it was crowded with the return visitors from Tokyo Disneyland in the platform, I was interested in the direction of the scene here. This is Tokyo when the iron bridge which is visible to the photograph central right is crossed, although it belongs to Chiba Prefecture. Exactly, the sun is trying to sink in a horizon. I was strangely impressive that the light was illuminating the track. Musashino Line which goes to Fuchū-honmachi from the direction of Tokyo was running to the plathome. This station is a stop station in both of Musashino Line and Keiyo Line. It is a Ferris wheel in Kasai Rinkai Park that is visible to left-hand side. It was time still early for lighting.
Train towards the Tokyo area: workshop

Impressive evening view from this suburban railway. Light is magnificient as the sun shines below layer of clouds and illuminates those rails. The ferris wheel balances the view nicely on the left.

Sunset pictures are seldom taken in an urban landscape but this is a very beautiful one.
The constructions with the electric cables above the train tracks provide a stunning graphical effect in the sky.
The picture in the WS is of the same excellent quality.
Best regards, Paul

This is a beautiful city scene. I like the pastel colors in the sky, and the bright, setting sun. All of the electrical lines overhead make a lovely pattern. We might not think that electrical lines could be beautiful, but in this photo they have a very artistic feeling. The large ferris wheel and approaching train are also great. Very nice!

This is a masterpiece! Beautiful sunset, intricate geometric shapes are the main strengths of this photo. You have managed to present those overhead wires in the most aesthetically pleasing way.

An early evening shot over the platform, Mikio, collected wonderful golden and grey colors. Electric wires mingle in good contrast.
"Busy" pic. with the coming train, sun and big wheel on side.
Fine taken picture, my cong.'s for the exquisite clarity.

très belle composition sur le fond du soleil couchant. Et la complexité du reseau du transport ferroviaire au Japon que j'ai admiré déjà sur place.

Hello Mikio. A photo with a very nice evening mood. The photo has so many details. Contrasts and light are well managed. Overall, an excellent contribution to TE.

You have wonderful pastel colours in the sky & vivid but still natural, the photo is pleasant and well taken and really stands out with the busy foreground & nice effect from the rail tracks rendering the punch and lead to grab more attention it deserves. An awesome sunset with strong focal points well composed and captured. Congrats
adores (39272) 2013-06-26 18:32
I like both! The colours are fantastic here and I really like the composition, with the train, the giant wheel and then the sun and the the city in background. A very good quality shot!

Hi dear Mikio.You captured the time of day beautifully and it's nice how the natural world and the man made world blend here into a harmonious, bright image.Excellent exposure so that the subtle changes in the colours of the sky are captured very well. Regards. Klaudio.
