>Well done.

Tres impressionnant....On sent toute la vie de la ville...avec ce mouvement!
Bravo superbe...

spectacular city night shot

Hi Marc...It is an impressive photo...I like the light sources and the effects of them on the composition...Excellent...


Très belle prise de vue. L'exposition et la saturation des couleurs sont parfaites.
Bravo Marc!

Superbe photo de ville!! Ton attente à été payante! Exposition et ouverture tres bien choisi!! Incroyable résultat!

Putain ! C'est beau une ville la nuit !
Que dire de plus que ce qui a déjà été dit ? A part que si tu continues comme ça, tu vas devenir un spécialiste des photos de nuit ;-)
J'aurais mis ma main à couper que tu allais nous pondre quelque chose dans ce style.
Bravo, elle est très réussie.
Au fait, avais tu un trépied, ou as tu posé l'appareil sur le bord de la baie vitrée ?

Beautiful capture of the cityscape, Marc. Exposure is perfect.

Bonjour Marc,
Superbe photo nocturne. Bravo.
Composition , lumière, netteté . Tout est parfait.
J'aimerias être dans tes souliers ! et visiter Tokyo aussi.

Very beautiful!! The car's lights give a busy athmosphere to the photo! Great job!

Hi Marc,
what an amazing night view of Tokyo!!
The city lights are incredible, but the ones that really impressed me are the ones of the streets, so I made a ws for you.

I love it....it`s an excellent composition, so well taken that now it`s on my fav list..

Ca à l'air pire qu'à l'intérieur de nos ordinateurs!!
Domo arigato.

I allways liked night shots. This one is very clear and sharp. Maybe you could have work a litle bit on the right bottom corner( give some light to the park).
Good work.

Ma préférée dans ta galerie (et pourtant les autres sont très chouettes !).

This is a perfect night shot. Good lightning and clarity. Nicely captured! Best wishes!

this one is very nice...its an eye catcher.congrats Marc

Amazing shot, Marc! I am very fond of your composition. The contrast of the lightful streets and the buildings are very good. Congratulations for your work!

Wow, fantastic image, technically perfect. Superb in every respect. TFS

hi Marc ,
wooooow..nice night shot..Excellent photo..well done


nice composition!

great use of lighting, an interesting angle and position. good night shots are hard to create, but this one is super. no blurryness, no fuziness of the hard permenant structures, and thats what you want.

great shot, lovely capture of night life in Tokyo!

En effet superbe lumière, très très impressionnant. J'aurais personnellement coupé l'immeuble en haut à gauche qui casse un peu la ligne d'horizon, mais la photo est tellement belle qu'on ne le voit pas. Allez, file dans mes favoris toi, et tout de suite ;))))

une netteté impressionnante sur cette mégapole où l'on voit presque son coeur battre et son sang couler dans ses veines avec ces voitures qui jaunissent les routes de leurs lumières. Très bien vu.

Patience served you well here. Looks like an infinite city, never-ending and on a constant move. This is "the perfect" shot. Congratulations Marc!!!

Really good - great exposure here, capturing the night view of the city, and the busy traffic.

This is an excellent work.Bravo.

Hello Marc, this is superb! I would love to do this photo in a puzzle :)

Great cityscape! It is so sharp and clear! The colours are great. Lucky you to be able to see those things :)

Cheers, Yan

Brilliant picture. Nice and clear. Lights from offices and buildings very clear and bright too. And the moving cars effect too. Great shot, and view at the city.

Hi Marc, Fantastic city night scape! Superb in detail! Great job!

Beautiful! I used to go to the Tokyo American Club near there... I wonder if it is still there


the streets seem to remember a japanise ideogram... as also in a modern city the tradition is important.....
well done

Encore une photo grandiose Marc. C'est magnifique et d'une netteté étonnante. Amitié, Patty.

very good photo Marc.

Bonjour Marc, Cette photo a une luminosité très impressionnante. La netteté est magnifique et ce de très près comme de très loin. Bravo! Marie-José

This is a great cityscape, Marc! Congratulations. I think your planning and dedication has completely paid off.
Best regards,

Great shot of Tokyo

It's just a perfect shot!

this one is really sweet :)
great composition and nice exposure control!

Well done
Best regards, Daniel

WOw! Et l'on ôse se plaindre de la promiscuité de nos rues par ici! Scène sous un angle saisissant et d'une nettetée digne d'un trépied de plomb :) Bravo! C'est est même graphique! Mais avec 2 secondes d'expo... Pas étonnant!

I plan to visit Tokyo in Jan. 07. I find your work very proffesional. Any tips or advice on taking photo's in Japan. This photo is exactly what I image I'd be after. I'll have 3 months there. This photo is worth EVERY point it gets. I wish I had a 50 point button!

Hi Marc

I went to Tokyo City View at Mori Tower in Roppongi, whilst I was in Tokyo. I like the starfish pattern. Well done, et bon travail!

a fantastic night capture marc. not easy to do it so crystal clear and sharp. well done.

Hi Marc
You already got so much compliments but the photograph. All well-deserved. Wonderful photograph!!! So faithfully he is giving details back. Great quality. (translator)

This is a fantastic shot. I really like your choice of slower shutter speed to create the effect of never-ending flow of cars on the streets.


Hello Marc,

fantastic photo ,
spectacular city night shot.


Nice photo. Road is too centered but holds your interest for a while. Good job

Great one.
Full of detail and the field aperture is very is well.

Great work.
Best Regards.

Hi Mark. Very good POV for this fine evening composition. The clarity and colours are excellent. That major road, full of traffic adds considerable interest. TFS. Murray.

Great job!!!
What a wounderful night scene.
The composition nice and the colours just amazing!!!
Well done!

This is an excellent night photo. There are a few things I like:

- the perpendicular lines of traffic, blurred nicely, to create great lines through the photo with the main line taking the eye through the photo to the background
- super crisp and sharp all the way through
- really good POV and the inclusion of just a slice of sky looks great - really good depth also
- the small details like all the red lights on top of the building s in the background, nice dark blue sky, inclusion of people and cars detailed enough to add interest
- perfect color

Great work.

Salut Marc,
Quelle photo incroyable.
Elle est tout simplement magnifique.
Quel point de vue à couper le souffle.
Photo d'une incroyable netteté pour une photo de nuit...les lumières de la ville sont parfaitement capturées.
