Plus One Magazine

+Ivan Makarov is putting out the call for the next Plus One charity effort, this time a photo magazine. Anyone can submit an entry, and details are here:

The theme is architecture. To be honest, I haven't taken that many architecture shots before even though Tokyo offers some fantastic opportunities for such types of photography. Since I'm traveling in a few days and will be away for a couple of weeks, I just picked the first building that came to mind (the Tokyo International Forum) and took a few shots this afternoon with the result you see below.

It's already been uploaded to the #plusoneissue1 album on SmugMug here:!i=1855116102&k=2cVM6bs

There are lots of fantastic entries already submitted, check them out when you have the chance! I believe voting on the photos will start from next week, so be sure to keep up with Ivan's posts. 🙂

    I agree with +Hidehiko Sakashita ! Esp. great is the contrast between warm/cold, which is the opposite in the lower part of the image! Well captured.

    A great photo of a really cool building. The red light switching sides is excellent! Almost hyperbolic…

    +Nimar Blu thanks! This shot was more by luck than planning – I just happened to get there at a point when the setting sun was angled just right to come in on the left and hit the middle right part of TIF (^^)

    Thanks, and that is a very cool link +Jonas Neergaard-Nielsen ! Math (and its variants) tend to freeze my brain but it's pretty cool that you can use WA for that.

    Thank you +Hidetaka Onoyama ! It would be cool to be accepted, but there are many great submissions so we will see. I was hoping to go around and find more things to shoot, but unfortunately I have gotten sick so I'm trying to recover quickly before my trip..

    What about you? I hope you can submit something too?

    Completely insane capture! The architecture you took is simply brilliant, kind of gives a little abstract feel to it xD

    +Jeff Matsuya My pleasure! The level of submission is really high. I can not find my pics for it. If I will try some post processing and succeed it, I will submit my pic. Anyway enjoy your trip! 😉

    Fantastic shot.

    Thanks +Scott Thames and +Jeff Austin !

    +Hidetaka Onoyama thank you, and I hope you get a photo that you are satisfied with 🙂

    +Shereen Yeoh , this was actually the 10-24mm lens on my D90 – I rented this lens just to play around with 🙂
    It's not bad, but not really a "walk-around" lens due to the massive distortion. Still, for this purpose, it served well 🙂

    Great shot +Jeff Matsuya! Everything is so symmetrical and well composed. It also makes me feel like I didn't properly take advantage of the area while I was there. he he. ;-P
