Shinjuku Full Moon
Posted By: RobG, 09-09-2012, 07:00 AM

Full moon over Shinjuku in Tokyo, New Year's Eve, 2009. I know it's an old photo, but it looks awesome in HD on my wallpaper, and really demonstrates the power of a Pentax K200D combined with a DA 16-45 lens. Wide open at f4, and hand held at 1/8s.

Nice one, Rob.
You did a good job with that handheld.
A lot of good photos can be had in Shinjuku, day or night.
This looks like you're quite close to the new south exit.
It's changed a bit and they're still doing more construction than ever... they've been working on that road for I don't know how many years.

I was taking a few photos around Kabuki-cho last Thursday. Interesting place, to say the least.

I have lots of great night photos from Shinjuku and a new interesting daytime ones. The coccoon building is a cool one for example.

I was tempted to take photos there myself, but I didn't want to risk getting in trouble with the people trying to encourage customers into clubs. Besides, the one night time walk I did take through kabukicho, I had to keep walking to avoid being dragged off the street by women offering massages.

It's a very busy photo and I mean that in the best way. I brings that hustle and bustle of the big city to life. Great handheld shot.

Thanks Trev! Shinjuku is certainly a part of Tokyo that never sleeps!
