This photograph is taken toward the direction of Ochanomizu station from the Manseibashi bridge. Manseibashi bridge is one of the bridges which are located in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo and built over Kanda river. It is on the national highway No-17. It is located in the southernmost end of the Akihabara electronics quarter here. It faces across Kanda river through which it flows in the center, and the elevated bridge of a brick-laying arch is visible to left-hand side. This is the building which had the railway station of Chūō Line till 1943, and there was Transportation Museum after the war. It also greeted the closing in 2006 and the former site was redeveloped and is again born now in the commercial establishment of the restaurant and cafe with a retro atmosphere using the brick arch. In the elevated bridge top, the train of Chūō Line (Rapid) is running still now. It is mixed with office buildings and an amusement building is visible to the right-hand side of a bridge. And, the high building of a university hospital is visible to the central back with mixed to many office buildings. It was chilly and cloudy day on that day.

Excellent DOF and perspective on this photo. Well managed light in difficult conditions. Good composition to keep the waterway in between the buildings on both sides.
Very well taken and presented. Thanks for sharing.

Inspite of the cloudy and fogy day, There is a nice reflection over the canal, Mikio, and good depth achieved along.
The archs under what appears to be an elevated road, is a fine object on picture.
Attractive painted signs on the wall on right.

Excellent view along the water channel. The channel is very well framed by the building. The reflections in water are excellent. Very well done.

A very impressive street view and a very good perspective. It is always interesting to see an "ordinary" view from big cities, not only the common post cards.

Fine diagonal view of the arch brick ex rail station, with distant mirror reflection in the Kanda River, all in low lighting and good resolution.
and I am pleased the historical building was preserved rather than demolished for modern development

A strong urbanscape shot emphasising on extensive depth and perspective using the diagonals of the river banks and rows of high rise buildings to converge naturally in the far end. You managed the light and tones well in a slight greyish cold day with good contrast of colours. All the urban clutter add up to a view we are all too familiar with. It's a fine image with great atmosphere, Well done
