I like photos in which there is a lot going on. It gives the eye something to munch on, so to speak. Shinjuku Station, in Tokyo, is the world’s busiest train station. So there is definite potential for shots in which there is a lot going on. The original of this shot of the Vegeteria (or, according to the sign, VegeteriA) had problems. It needed to be cropped, and there were three separate problems with the lighting.
Where ever you go, you are bound to see new things. The temptation is to take pictures of landmark attractions or beautiful landscapes, while ignoring shops and store windows. But having pictures of the town adds revives memories of the place, and it helps show others what it was really like. Matsushima is famous for its bay having over two hundred small islands. I took photos of shops as we walked along the street skirting the shoreline.
The observation level is glassed in, so if any photos are to be taken at all, they will be taken through the glass. The outside of the glass is prone to dust. On a sea coast like Aomori the problem is compound by fine salt mist evaporating on the glass. The image I took of the city’s bridge and harbor looks grayed-out. … The cure is to grab the arrow on the low end of the histogram and move it up to where the levels of the image start.
