The Tokyo International Forum designed by architect Rafael Viñoly.
Taken from opposite my previous post, handheld shot putting the camera on the handrail as a tripod, at 17:58 blue hour.
As for this time zone, the impression is quite different in only 17 minutes.

What a great graphical work here! What an explosion of shapes, of light. Wonderful!! The blue is wonderful. The sharpening in post processing very well done. Very pleasant depth and contrast without becoming too obvious.
Very nice one!! Thanks for sharing this beauty!

A great architectural shot.
Beautiful blue sky light.

Thats extremely pretty and so colourful. The perspective and the angle make it really very imposing and impressive
kmarscher (2887) 2008-03-14 3:32
Carefully framed shot of this architectural wonder in Tokyo, the lines, shapes, and negative space create movement and a dynamic symmetry. Good idea to use the railing to stabalize your camera and the use of hte super wide angle lens "makes
this shot stunning.

Just to get a photo, I will return to this fabulous architectural realisation. This building left me a great impression and I have a lot of admiration for Japanese architecture. This one is a fine example. The wood wall in the hall is splendid.
You've done a great work here Hisashi. I've visited your gallery this week and I was surprised to see your evolution and your shift of interest. You're not doing architecture photography since very long and your results are very impressive.
This image is magical, and the outside blue hour mixed with indoor lighting is sublime. I think that its the juxtaposition of warm and cold tones that create an ultimate colour palette.

Beautifull bridge .... Nice colors and lights .. The photogrpah specialises in contrasts . NICE WORK!!
kiks (11749) 2008-03-14 3:41
Hi Hisashi, impressive architecture and you catch it from a perfect POV to get a strong grafic composition. Perfect light management also.
tehanu_f (6896) 2008-03-14 4:13
Perfect capture, Hisashi! The depth is amazing. I feel like I were going through a huge whale's mouth. the exposure is spot-on and the colour combination is striking. Congrats!
sevy (15011) 2008-03-14 4:40
Compare to the previous photo, I prefer a lot this one. First because of the blue outside tones much more present and second because of the central composition which works very well here. There are enough differences between the 2 sides to break nicely the symetry effet even if it is strongly present.
marine-coeur (768) 2008-03-14 4:52
Amazing construction,excellent patterns,very good details+colours
well done hisashi.
Asiulus (1176) 2008-03-14 5:13
Wow, great quality and wisely thought composition - no coincidences here. Perfectionist, aren't you?
atsouth (253) 2008-03-14 5:40
hi, v nice symmetric composition, the lighting also looks great with all the warm colors and the blue sky. The vertical format suits this pov much better i think than the horizontal on the previous photo, because the space is long and narrow.
dkeus31 (27735) 2008-03-14 11:11
very nice graphical image, with the repetitive motives making a good color contrast
teutza (10590) 2008-03-14 11:12

Morac (27419) 2008-03-14 14:41
I liked the photograph of yesterday taken day.
I believe that I like still more that of now taken of night at the blue hour.
Thanks for sharing this beauty!

The compositions in your pictures show aspects psychedelics, beautiful and colorful, it is understood that everything is a product of high modernism to be admired live in your country.
I am very pleased this structure, with great depth of field and high illumination. Surely that is a great job, congratulations.

A dramatic perspective in bright colours: supperb!!!
CaptainJack (0) 2008-03-20 17:05
Hi Hisashi, wow I really like this shot much better than your other perspective. Really emphasizes the design factor of this hanging hull of a ship in the sky, and the lighting is so spot-on an clear!
alaindiveu (210) 2008-03-21 4:06
Great picture : graphism, colors, technical shot, everything is good.
Good POV and framing too
Very nice job
PixelTerror (0) 2008-03-22 15:00
Wow superb place, it all looks so futuristic and sophisticated, the leading curvy shapes combined with the repetition of reversed ceiling arches give the view excellent dynamism, you realized here an amazing architecture picture !
Have a nice day JY
Bruno40 (6658) 2008-03-27 6:43
I remmeber giving you a critique some time ago of one of your photos. Since then I have not visited your gallery. Now I can see so many beautiful photos, especially during th eblue hour.
Please forgive me if some day I post some similar POVs!. next time in Tokyo I will try some of those.
I have never been to this building, and it seems impressive. The effect of blue hour and wide angle made this shot amazing.
You've got a really nice work here.
Estelle (2766) 2008-04-06 16:40
That's a fantastic shot of this architecture. This vertical view makes it especially impressive.
The colours and contrast are great
livinitout (942) 2008-04-14 18:52
Very stylistic. The lights are well managed here and the composition is like something taken out of a futuristic spaceship. Nicely done.
ajayrawat (571) 2008-04-17 4:11
Superb! ... your photos are so graphical in nature. You should try using them for poster art. :D
Dyerco (10185) 2008-04-18 20:54
Beautiful patterns and lines in this image. Interesting perspective using the wide angle lens to create a tunnel like effect.
flashpoint (4002) 2008-04-22 14:58
extraordinary visual impact!!!
great play of lights and shapes
thanks for sharing
sunnysunday (78) 2008-04-28 21:59
all shade and colours here are so wonderful
smooth light contrasts with the blue sky then comes this stunning look
you chose the nice time to take this picture
branley (3681) 2008-05-21 4:00
Hello Hisashi, I think you have a natural abilty for these graphic, architectural shots and I really like this one because it has great depth, lots of good colour, the curves are fantastic and fit in well with the vertical and horizontal lines at the sides. It's a very fine capture, from a good perspective and well realised.
david_P (512) 2008-05-28 11:34
Great Work at blue hour !
ocskaymarci (2646) 2008-06-30 5:29
Excellent bluehour photo! I love the light adjustemnt and the depth given by the long hall. Here we can see a palette of various colours that make this photo more beautiful!
PaulVDV (19399) 2008-07-12 1:31
A fantastic architecture picture.
The composition is very good and the colours are really beautiful. I like the contrast between the blue and the (yellow)white.
Also the diagonal structures add to the beauty of this picture.
ricard (653) 2008-07-23 4:00
Stunning architecture and you catch it from a perfect point of view.
it was not allowed to use the tripod or you didn't carry one?
Bluejeans (64247) 2008-08-13 5:14

Um abraço Gonçalo

What a wonderful architectural photo is this. I like sigma 12-24 mm wide angle. I also have the same lenses for Nikon. Have a nice day with photos.
mondele (823) 2009-01-08 8:56
Excellente prise de vue. Graphisme, lumière et couleurs: tout est très beau.

A very beautiful take. The perspective is really great so as the lights.
