Excellent! The composition of 1, 2 and 4 is great!

One things strikes me as strange: in my city, the light is always warm and orange and so the sky is crimson. Not a question of bad white balance, since thats what it looks like with the naked eye as well. Did you remove this color during postprocessing or do they use different lights in Tokyo than they do here? If you removed the color in postprocessing, how did you keep the tiny orange lights and the streak of orange street lights?

I've increased their sizes a little bit. If you want bigger you have to click on the picture.

I definitely removed some of the warm orange from the original. I like the cooler look better than a warm orange. I just think it looks more modern, more crisp.

All I did was desaturate the yellow channel a bit in Photoshop. I simply did it in such a way as to get a lot of the orange out of the sky, but it was still saturated enough to show the orange street lights. It's kind of like a balancing act. At least that's what I think I did. I don't remember too well because I did these a while ago.

Lowering the left parts of the red and green curves while leaving their right parts absolutly unchanged is enough for that.

troutguy ah so thats how you did it, a very simple procedure and it makes all the difference! It really does look so much more modern!

Can you tell us more about them, such as how you got permission to stand on the roof (or were they made from a balcony/window?) and what they are intended for?

Regards!

Thanks for the kudos. The pictures were taken on the observation floor of the Mori Tower, the tower in the 4th picture. They normally don't allow photography up there, especially with a tripod, but it was really slow that night and they allowed me through with the normal admission fee. So I was shooting through glass.

The biggest problem with this was that there was a lot of reflections on the glass from light sources inside the room. So I had to take pictures with the lens as close to the glass as possible, and with one hand holding up a jacket to block the reflections from showing on the glass and in the picture. It is highly advisable to take with you a large dark piece of cloth when you're talking night pictures through glass.

As for what I was doing it for... it was just for fun. I'm just a hobbyist.
