During the long weekend I took the time to go through some of my images and was a little surprised at just how many photos I have backlogged…

Aside from the 366 photos (huge backlog there!), there are just so many others that I haven't had a chance to work on over the past months due to work, company events, charity/volunteer activities, and just plain 'ol laziness (sometimes you just need a day off from everything to goof off and recharge your batteries).  

I worked on quite a number of images over the long weekend – but most were for work (shoots of events at the office).  One of the non-work photos was this, taken a couple months back.  Just for fun, I attempted an HDR version which was actually tougher than I remember since it's been so long since I've tried HDR.  I think it turned out alright, though I'll probably go back to single frames for the most part 😛

Gotta crash for the evening, so good night all!

    This is brilliant – the HDR is just subtle enough that it doesn't strike you at first but gives a lot of life to the image. Composition is top notch – perhaps I would like it even more if the pole along the right edge were not there.

    Good luck getting through your backlog – I'm in the same situation…

    +Jonas Neergaard-Nielsen , I wondered if anyone would notice that bit of the pole!  It also kind of bugged me, but in the end I decided to leave it in.  If I get the time (yeah..), I'll see what it looks like cropped in a little tighter – thanks for the feedback, and best of luck getting through your backlog as well 🙂

    +Celina Corbo , I'm glad that I'm able to share a little bit of Japan for others to enjoy – thank you!  🙂

    +Jeff Matsuya I agree, cropping that pole would help.

    how did you manage to keep the orange in only one half of the sky neatly divided ?! lovely :o)

    +Jason Arney , I'll see what a crop looks like and if I can get it nice, then I'll try replacing the photo.

    +michelle vitard , thanks!  It was just the time of day (fading sunset) that got the sky that way.  If you notice the tracks, those on the left are also more orange/golden because they're reflecting the sunset while the tracks on the right are in shadow (because of the angle) and they don't have that color 🙂
