If you shot raw, you can adjust "recovery" and then the "highlights" so the sky looks more natural. Actually that's what I try to avoid, having a good subject and then the sky ruins it.. Haha. But yeah, I understand the shooting circumstances and sometimes if you're in a bright area and looking on your LCD, you don't notice the overexposure. Which brings me to another tip! You have to rely on the histogram for this instead. The histogram is a more objective check for proper exposure...
I started off shooting RAW/jpeg but then realized you can't shoot HDR with RAW so I changed it back to just jpeg and forgot to put it back after I'd shot some HDR
I'll have to have a look at the manual to find the histogram, I wasn't familiar with that function until you mentioned it.
Thanks for the valuable tips!

What made you think the Shibuya Hikarie was anything special?

Mt Takao

Mt Takao is a great spot, overlooking the entire Tokyo metro area. I jumped on the Keio Line for the hour long (limited express) journey to Takaosanguchi Station. As I mentioned, my main goal was to get some pictures of Mt Fuji but I didn't like my chances.

This is the Beer Mount restaurant, it's an all you can eat and drink buffet for around 3000Y with fantastic views of Tokyo. Unfortunately the last cable car is 9.15pm so you have to get there early!

I made it!
Ok, forewarning for those that don't like HDR.........the following photo's are all in camera HDR, post processing was limited on most but there are a few where I went a bit crazy (sorry Baka ) though I will leave those til last.
Anyway, I'm very happy with the end result, which is all that matters

So, I got to the summit and could not see any sign of Fujisan. I was somewhat disappointed even though I had already accepted that the chances were pretty low of seeing the mountain in all her glory, which I never got to see on my first trip (well maybe a very brief glimpse).
Still, the views were great........

Mt Fuji is supposed to be visible directly underneath the lowest branch on the tree (top right) but as you can see she is covered in cloud and haze

Resigned to the fact that I would not see Fujisan I started to walk back to the cable car but I decided to take one last look.........I was surprised (and very happy) to see the faint silhouette of Fuji! I stuck around a little longer hoping that the cloud would dissipate even further..........

As it got darker, the cloud eventually disappeared and Fujisan was looking spectacular!
