Tokyo, Japan – Tokyo Tower (HDR)

Here is the Tokyo Tower in HDR via Fisheye.  As my hotel was a 5 minute walk from here…I woke up early in the AM for sunrise and wanted to catch some shots of the tower.  It is an interesting place.  Not perfect for close up photography…at the base of the tower is this building.  Kinda odd!  I shot it for about an hour…walked around on all sides and tried to catch some cool angles.  Very tough!    It was cloudy this morning and early AM they still have the tower lit up partially…so a semi bonus there!   You can buy tickets to the viewing deck…if I can recall $21.00!  Ouch!    …its not that high!     I think Godzilla may be taller!  =)
