On cold days like today, it’s nice to bask in the glory of the sun. These people here have the right idea. During sunsets, the sun shines brightly in this direction, allowing people to enjoy their meals directly in the sun.

The National Art Centre, Tokyo, is great in during this time, when the sun makes for great lighting in this unique and architecturally striking building.

I tried to capture the warmth of the sun here, as the people ate their meals. I’m also testing out a new program that I recently bought—Topaz Labs’s Glow—that produces this glowing effect on images. I’ll have to play with it more to see how I can better make use of it, and then perhaps do a review on it as well! So far, I have to say it is promising as I can still use it to make realistic images.
