I actually think your thread would have a better explosure in the Showcase section, I will move it there and see what kind of response we would get and go from there! Don't worry, I can always move it back here if you decide to come back.

Yellow Fever > let s try it this way

Ni3lS > well some people have a great eye for urbanity, wich I don t ! this is why I am here : to learn on urban-gifted photographers

my eye flows with people, details and tradition, and I like to share images I believe I am good at - for the other ones, I need learning first

Tokyo has a lot to offer for urbanity, I will get to it one day ...

christos-greece > thank you and welcome on board !

your photos are good but getting boring after repetition of so many similar images. just go walk down the street and take pictures of people or buildings or whatever. try to be more spontaneous. you can do it. more like the first picure would be good. thats what we want.

diskojoe > sorry that I bored you

please note there is a misconception here, my pictures are not urban, there are of subjects that I like and think I am good at capturing

I thank you for your recomendation of shooting the things that you like, like going out and randomly shooting the big cities, but I am not so good at it and you have undreds of thousands of people doing just that every year in Japan - when I will be able to do something better than them I will do that - but please note that the subjects I shoot are in general very specific details of old Japan culture, comparatively very few people shoot that kind of images so I believe it will be of interest to some

as said just before your post, my images are in this forum because they are self made, not because they are urban ...

Yellow Fever > maybe the previous forum was more adapted, it seems to create confusion if placed along urban shots only

I think we should change the title of this section so that it's not just for urban photos only. Leave it to me Alain, I'm going to talk to the admin and see what we can do for you.

it is obvious that your photos are not urban. thats cool. they are very very good. but you did state yourself that you were interested in doing more urban photography so I gave you some advise on that subject. and you say you are not good at urban photography but i think you would be great at it. plus you can do both old and modern and you do not have to give up one for the other.

and lots of people shot pictures of historic japanese culture. just not many post them here. this is skyscrapercity so inherently there is an urban emphasis. but there are also lots of photography enthusiaists too. so keep posting whatever you feel like and do not think i am implying for you to stop posting your photos. that would be a shame.

thank you for your argumented feedback, it is always very interesting

yes I shoot little urban/modern japan, it is because first I am not so in love with modern Japan, and also it is difficult because places like Tokyo are overshot. So I come on this forum to see, learn and improve. I started this thread to share back the images I am good at.

But contrary to what you may think, good pictures of traditionnal japan are more rare than modern ones, for sure you have a ton of people snapping at both every year. But igh level tradition requiers a good deal of local integration, travel, and japanese language - very vew people actually live in traditionnal areas. Compare to that you have the anonymous and english speacking Tokyo and other big cities where many photographers live.

So, cities like Tokyo have been extensively shooted, and there are a lot of fantastic images, so just taking pictures in the street will not get to any interesting point, it is really hard to make an image that can survive the mass of other ones ... so until I figure out how to play that suject, I cannot show a lot ...

lately I have been searching for this kind of new subjects but 2010 has been busy and I hope 2011 will get better ! one thing I have been working on is called ... helicopter
