Thanks, Jakov.  I try to take much vinegar to keep the flexibility.  :o :o :o  Actually I put my camera on my face for increased stability.   ;D

I think the orange line (which is the key to the image) is more prominent in the first version, but the second one can be more powerful maybe?

Keep the contrast of the second image, de-saturate everything apart from the orange line :)

Thanks, Jacov, for your encouragement.  So far as I live in Tokyo, I don't seem to run out of the motifs.  :D

A surprising element with the leafs, great transition from black, white to black.

Erik and John, thanks!

At first, the street light and the tree seemed bothering elements, but I thought differently and tried to include them as compositional element.

Very nice and interesting series, both bw and color. I've trying to avoid this point of view to realize now that I like it. Thanks!
#34 as singing extra and is the best of the series for me. Please, keep them coming.

  Thanks for sharing!

Paco, thanks for kind words.  I'm glad you like the series.

Yes, I'll keep the series.  There are plenty of "subjects" here in Tokyo!
