Default Back from Japan 3 - Nikko

Arrived in Nikko just at the perfect time for the trees to change colour, I was just stunned by how beautiful it was. No saturation increase needed on these, of anything I had to drag down the contrast a bit as it was so vivid.



























This made me chuckle

Thanks all!

I hit the upload limit for one post, so there's some more from Nikko to post, but have to rush off for work now. If anyone is curious they can click on one of the images to go to my Flickr page and get a preview.

I can't believe I nearly skipped out on Nikko, I was going to spend the day just mooching around and doing some shopping but a friend invited me and I figured it might be interesting. I think I took over 359 photo's on that day, mostly duplicates as the light was pretty low so had to fiddle with the camera and shoot in continuous mode to avoid camera shake.

those a great shots of a cool looking roof
i am not sure if all the electronic stuff looks of the right era

if you look at 9 (if i counted right) crosseyed it kind of goes into 3d
i bet it would work better on a large photo

you made a good decision
