Gundam in Odaiba

There's a life-size Gundam in Odaiba. Here are my over processed photos of it.

Every 30 minutes there is a "show". Basically there is music and the Gundam's head turns left and right and everyone in attendance except me is seriously into that.

Check it out before it blasts off... into the future!*

Hi, my name is Justin and I've been following your blog for a while now. I really like your photos and I'm curious what you shoot with and how you post process them. Your Gundam photos are very over-processed, but it lends a surreal feel to them that's fitting considering the subject. I'm especially curious how you processed the bottom three, they look almost like computer graphics.
Keep up the good work!

Thanks Justin. I use a Nikon D90 with a combination of different lenses. The photos here are all with my 10-20mm Sigma lens, that adds a lot to the perspective. 10mm takes some crazy shots.

I do HDR processing, and use Lightroom to tweak the levels. Lightroom has a Photomatix plugin that makes things a snap. On the HDR shots, I usually find myself bumping up the blacks and clarity quite a bit.

Cool shots Brian! I really need to give photomatrix a spin once I upgrade my computer!
