I really like this shot. First of all the position of the horizon gives the composition a feeling of balance. The colours and lighting of this particular cityscape really draw the eye across the page. I think with the angle you chose, the buildings are not only well represented as blocks of colour, but also draw the eye downward to the streets that remain obscured. I've roamed this bit of Tokyo myself, so for me it also creates a sense of nostalgia. I wonder though, if showing a bit of the street might lead the viewer to more easily mentally wander through the tableau, but then again maybe not. Over all I found this image quite striking.
What do you think?

Such an amazing shot BurningMonk! I could stare and examine all the small details for hours on end. To actually see it in person must be awesome!

No problem! :) hahaha I have seen a documentary based on a subculture of Russian/Ukrainian adults and teenagers who love to sneak up to 
rooftops for pictures and entertainment! I can understand the thrill!
How many rooftops have you sneaked up into? And which one was your most rewarding?

There is also these guys: ontheroofs.com/

I was actually a bit inspired by them. As for most rewarding, it would have to be one in Shibuya. I haven't posted the photo yet, but I will soon. It's a shot of a Forever 21 billboard just before dawn. That was a great experience. :D
