Tokyo cityscape Shinjuku towers seen from the Tokyo Tower

Night view towards the futuristic high rise office buildings in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, as seen from the top of the Tokyo Tower. The NTT DoCoMo building is an obvious reference to the Empire State Building. To its left can be seen the twin towers of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government buildings. Partially blocking the view on the left is a building under construction with rooftop cranes and red lights.

I'm amazed this photograph turned out. I aimed the camera with the zoom lens almost fully extended to 300mm, propping it up against the glass window of the viewing platform. The movement of the tower in the wind caused at small amount of blurring. I took two overlapping photos and merged them in Photoshop. I removed a green cast and increased the contrast by clicking 'Auto levels'.
