[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Tokyo is NOT clear and beautiful city,
but rather depressive city, like Paris.
Le Spleen de Tokyo 1,
inspired by "Le Spleen de Paris", Charles Baudelaire.

sharp,clear and balanced in term of lights and colors.very well presented in B&W.TFS

I recalled my memories of my stay in Tokyo, Akihisa-san!

Great B/W capture of township of Shinju-ku with huge advertisement postings.
The clouds add mood into the shot. The taxi adds another charm into the shot.
Great composition!

arigato gozaimasu,

Hi Akihisa

I like these street advertisements which I saw them before during a visit of Beijing (similar to this shot)
The exposure is excellent with great details on clouds
The edge sharpness is excessive as there are some crenation
I guess the color version is much more beautiful

TFS, Alireza

Hello, Akihisa -
Fascinating micro cityscape of Tokyo; the composition conveys the intensity of development below but leaves space for the clouded sky above. The b&w presentation conveys the urban mood. Sharp and interesting details of the signs and architecture. Very nicely done.

Bom dia akihisa
Excellent B/W work in this good composition. A great panoramic from Tokyo.I never been in Tokyio...so it is great to watch how it looks like,...I like this photo very much.
Your note is fantastic...there┤s a lot to talk about...since Baudelaire until depression mood special in France. You are the person that I watch to write that Paris is depressive...I am going to think about.
Um abrašo

Buena imagen urbana con todos los anuncios y detalles de la ciudad con una buenisima conversion en B&W
Buen trabajo
un saludo

Hello Akihisa - Very different stark and monochromatic view from your usual colorful country shots. I can tell where you would rather be!
Have a good day,

Hello Akihisa,

Excellent daily life photo from Tokyo.
So many advertisements.
I like your choice for b/w.
Excellent composition, clarity, sharpness and light tones.

Best regards,

Classic look, with great B&W image of this amazing city with all the cityscape character....lovely POV and thank you for sharing it.


I don't think Paris is a depressive city, on the contrary. But what the hell is this anyway? janos

Ciao Akihisa, lovely B&W, great urban view with wonderful sky, very well done, ciao Silvio
