Photographer's Note

This is a nightscape viewing from Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building South observation deck at 202 meters off the ground. Use of cameras is permitted, but tripods are forbidden.
The moment that the brightness of the sky balances well with the lights of city is only two or three minutes, at around 30 minutes after sunset.
This is one of 56 shots taken putting the camera (Yes we Canon!) on a
window frame with AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing) at -2/3, 0, +2/3.
A windy weekday in December or early in January is good for taking photos of nightscape here. The office buildings offer a lot of lights at weekdays, north winds sweep the sky clean.

The buildings on the image from left to right are;
Shinjuku Sumitomo Building (Constructed:1974, Roof:210.3m), Shinjuku Mitsui Building (1974, 225m), Shinjuku Center Building (1979, 223m), Keio Plaza Hotel (1971, left:178m right:138m),
and behind them;
Shinjuku Nomura Building (1978, 209m), Sompo Japan Head Office Building (1976, 200m), Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower (2008, 203.65m).

The WS indicates accurately the names of the buildings.
