Stall - 夜店

Asakusa, Tokyo, Japan

Nikon D200
Tamron SP AF 17-50mm F2.8 XR Di II (A16N)@ 50mm
F2.8, 1/50, ISO-400

The first cut of this image:

The large one gives more dynamic of the scene as well as concentration of the shop keeper while the original cut (small one) also emphasises loneliness of the shop keeper.


  1. I'd say your final cut is the right cut. But this is a beautiful serene image with so much to contemplate, absorb and explore that it whatever way you crop it it will remain beautiful and enticing.
    All your Japanese images from the previous days are absolutely fantastic Ben! I look forward for more!

  2. I like this one Ben. Many of the night shots in this series are predominantly orange in color on account of the street lighting, although you have done a good job with the color balance. This one has an area of pink which rescues it from being all orange. I like the way the shop keeper is partially obscured and not noticed straight away. The steam adds some life to the scene. IMHO, your crop gives a better composition.
