Gizmodo HDR Contest

I entered the photo below in the big Gizmodo HDR contest! I found out about it when I got back from Japan. What is strange (and a small world!) is that the photo featured at the top of that contest is from /\ltus, who is the friend I stayed with for three days while in Tokyo! And, even more small-worldish, the photo I submitted was also from Tokyo! It had to be a photo taken in the last week, so I thought it fit the bill in many ways.

Daily Photo – Ginza, Tokyo in the Rain

It had been raining all afternoon and it continued right through dusk. Luckily, the D3X seems impervious to rain, ice, sleet, and snow (deep experience in all four), so I just ignored all the elements in this case too.

Ginza is a really cool, upscale area of Tokyo. The buildings are huge and gleaming with every possible color. It comes alive right at dusk. I ran out into the middle of the street to do my best to capture all the action of the scene.

    Sublime work, Trey!

    It was great meeting you in Tokyo – the book was a great read but I’m still trying to decipher the message you wrote! lol

    I took an image of Shibuya that offered a slightly different POV (from your rooftop football pitch) – – hope you get a chance to check it out!

    Keep the images rolling and good luck in the contest!

  • Darn I missed the deadline… oh well. Good luck on your entry Trey. Looking forward to seeing the results.

  • I’m sure lots of process to be done in this photo… with rain, moving cars, noise on long shutter…its hard to process HDR at night.

  • Great photo of Tokyo in the rain, Trey. Thanks for sharing!!!

  • Thanks all – Daily – yes it took a lot of pp… for sure!

    Daniel – thanks for the link!

  • yes .. Yes, it is a beautiful image

  • Great picture . . never mind the impervious to rain,
    I hope you’re impervious to cars!
