A friend of a friends friends flickr page... or something like that... I think its meant to be a stylized artistic representation of the city.. I only recognize a few places near where I lived, hung-out or worked.

It might be a bit of cheap photoshop trickery but it looks nice..

In the group of people I know here in town and in Vancouver, I'm the only one who has not been to japan in at least one part of their life.
It makes me feel left out of the loop. :roll:

pentium, if it makes you feel better, I've been to Japan several times, and I'm glad I went, but I've never been to Vancouver. A few people I know insist that Vancouver is the most beautiful city in the world, so I guess I'm out of the loop, too.

Very nice pictures... Whoever that is spent a lot of time making sure he/she had, well, just about everything just right... (And I'm sure a bit of CS4/Lightroom to clean them up, but software will fix only just so many ills...)

But hey, in Vancouver, you have japadogs! They've even been written up in the Japanese media, so you have something the Japanese don't!

I was reading through some of the comments and the the photographer responded that he likes to use HDRI. The results are quite stunning.
