中華街

ChukagaiI have mixed feelings about tone mapping, and am still learning how to use it. Often when I try it, I will usually paste the result in a layer over the original image and reduce the opacity to a very low amount to create natural looking photo with a little more brilliance.
Last week, work took me to Tokyo, which allowed me to spend some time with my daughter who lives in nearby Yokohama. We took a stroll, and then had dinner, in Yokohama’s 中華街 Chinatown. This photo is a quick hand-held snapshot, but I did use a shift lens to control perspective distortion. I thought that the overly intense color and contrast that can result from tone mapping fit the scene.
