Photographer's Note

The Moon Cafe in Honmoku, Yokohama is one of a kind cafe. It's entire theme is based on the 1960's style. It is a fantastic place to chill out and have excellent burgers for lunch (or anytime).

The Moon Cafe is part of a big business called Mooneyes, which is a business specialised on customising cars and motorcycles, particularly Hot Rods." The business was founded and established originally in California by Dean Moon (1927 - 1987). After Moon died, his Japanese partner bought the entire business and keeps the culture and spirit alive. The cars and motorcycles customised by this company are absolutely stunning and Mooneyes became a very respected, if not the most respected, name in the industry amongst Hot Rodders.

Post editing workflow:
Reduced slightly saturation, used adjustment brush to decrease exposure at the sealing near the spot lights, increased contrast and clarity, slightly enhanced shadow areas.

Post upload note:

The original photo has more vibrant colours. Also the centre seems to be a bit too dark on the uploaded photograph, but on the original one it is OK. It seems that the upload process has changed the photograph a little bit and I am not too happy about it. I may post a workshop to compensate for these deviations.
