Photographer's Note

This is a twilight cityscape in Shinjuku, Tokyo.
I tried a cliché of the night cityscape of making a stream of the car tail lights by using a long exposure.
Taken about 70 shots for 30 minutes after 20 minute of sunset, to get the images that the light between the buildings and the sky balanced, with AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing) at -2/3, 0, +2/3.

My camera was set on the tripod set on the footbridge, but it was the time of leaving the office, a lot of office workers walked at a quick pace on this footbridge. Although i was annoyed by the vibration, managed to release the shutter button.

For the part of the buildings, I have developed the raw image at color temperature 3600 K to emphasize a feel of cool in city. The part except the buildings has been done at daylight white balance. And the part of the flow of the tail lights has been made by a composite of 5 pieces.
Here is a basic image (not composite but single shot) on workshop.


The buildings on the image from left to right are;
Shinjuku Center Building (Constructed:1979, Roof:223m), Sompo Japan Head Office Building (1976, 200m), and Shinjuku Nomura Building (1978, 209m).
Shinjuku Center Building and Shinjuku Nomura Building have the free observation deck at the 53rd floor and the 50th floor respectively.
