A view from Mori Tower in Roppongi, Tokyo. I think it was on the 55th floor? The adjacent art museum within the tower, is not really worth the 1500 yen entry fee imho, although the spectacular night view of Tokyo certainly was.

Very good night shot. With the diagonal street I could imagine the movement and the power of the city.

A great POV of Tokio at night. This view from that floor is really impressive.
The lights are good as well and the exposure is good too.

excellent bird's eye view here on the insane streets of Tokyo. The crazy arrangement actuall reminds me of Seoul.

Wow, this is an impressive city view !
Very smart framing with the road in the diagonal.
Exposure is perfect.

an interesting take, i find it a nice definition of "endlessness";
there was an interesting movie the other day about an american actor meeting a married (but lonely) woman in a luxury hotel in tokyo - and its exactly the movie scene from that film;

Good to see you again.I like the light you have captured in this one especially the luminated road and the passing cars.Pretty crowded down there eh? I liked your previous image as well...good mood.Keep well.

Impressive top-to-bottom night scene of Tokyo, Chris! WOW! Depth here is really good with good exposure and composition - good idea to center and orient along the main street/Bd. that draw the eye along toward the depth of the picture and showing the whole high rising buildings...
Impressive shot of an impressive capital!

Great shot, Chris!!!
This night picture shows the living reality of the megapolis.
Exellent capture, so various and uncommon.
You've choosen a good POV:)

Very nice view of japan here, I like the streets of Tokyo, alive at night, well captured

Yet another high POV you found :) Excellent view of Tokyo. I love the way you composed it with the use of the road to draw the eye into the frame. Unusual choice of vertical format, but it works really well, taking that road until it disappears.

I'd pay that sum to be able to shoot such a picture. Fantastic sight, good execution, I like the diagonal line of the main alley.
sayan (2617) 2006-10-15 9:11
Excellent top view of the streets of Tokyo. The night city is captured beautifully. Good sharpness.
Cormac (26563) 2006-10-15 12:51
Very nice shot! I like the way you used the street to tie this all together, as the street winds through the shot like a snake. Well done!
RGatward (20062) 2006-10-16 3:40
Well seen view, with the main road making a gfood diagonal for the compo.
tcht (7565) 2006-10-16 5:30
Amazing view with that 'vein' of the city leading our eyes towards the centre. Bravo, great shot!
john_c (24666) 2006-10-17 10:05
One can literally hear the cacophany of busy night sounds of this dynamic city. I like the exposure level, with the brownish strip of traffic cutting through the frame. The vertical format works well to emphasize the vastness of this urban landscape. Well done.

This certainly is an impressive view of the great megalopolis, and I hope that I too will have the chance to see it like this. The picture quality is a little on the low side, however.

Nice pic, Chris, from a great POV, showing this magnificent metropolis in night lights. great details too! I like the impressive criss-cross of busy streets! Well done! TFS! Regards! Miguel.

Très intéressant une photo de nuit de Tokyo.
Je me demande pourquoi il y des points rouges dans le haut de la photo?
C'est une bonne photo.
