Where do I begin? Let me say that this work conveys the business of the city, and how crowded and bright it is. There is just something about it that makes you feel like you are there. However the height at which this work is set (I'm guessing about 10 or 15 feet) removes part of the impact of the piece. The viewer doesn't feel like they are completely there. From the ground the city would have looked dizzyingly busy, which would be great. However the colors and brightness of the piece still overload the senses, just like they would in real life. This is a very good piece.
What do you think?

It looks nearly like a painting, a captured image that seems to almost be from another lifetime. It's very surreal, and still very present, as if you're dreaming.

This is a beautiful picture of Shinjuku at night! I really like how all the different colours on the signs clash with each other but it goes also together so perfectly (if you can understand that, haha)
Anyway, this is gorgeous. It really makes me feel like I'm there in Shinjuku, floating above the traffic. Terrific job!

Very good shot: the quantity of colours and different lights gives a special magic that only night pictures are able to show.
On the other hand, I think the angle of the photography would be better if it were taken in the floor level, so we could see the different faces that go through the urban darkness. I also think that if the picture had movement, from persons or cars, it would give a dynamic effect to the shot.

I'm sorry, because I'm no premium member and I can't write a more extense critique, but I hope it will help you.
Anyways, great work. I really love it :heart:
