Tokyo/Shanghai Pics

Got back from Tokyo/Shanghai a few days ago. Here are some of the pics I took along the way.

Tokyo/Kamakura pics

















Here's some Shanghai pics. I'm still working on some of them.

You like angles a lot, don't you? Haha! The color is awesome in every photo, but the first and last ones looks a bit too much; you can see some "posterizing" or whatever they call it near the top left corner.

are you using a very restricting lense like a 50mm or 85? You tilt your pics a lot which is disturbing for ordinary viewers...

Yeah I was using a 50mm for the first time and I had a hard time getting everything to fit into the frame.

Use a wider lens next time, a zoom won't restrict you like this. Although the contrast/colors/bokeh is great, the 50mm as you can see has its negatives.
