Sony a99 Test Video of random flowers and color grading

With some freetime I went out and took some test videos of some random flowers with the Sony a99. I tried a couple different settings, the first two clips the camera's contrast was set to -3 and saturation to -1. For the third and last clip both the contrast and saturation were set to -3. I also showed the clip before and after color grading.

Tokyo Sky Tree - Sony a7r Carl Zeiss 55mm f1.8 FE

A visit to the Tokyo Sky Tree, one of the tallest structures in the world (at the time of upload). There are two levels visitors can visit. The first is about 350 meters high and the ticket up costs about 2000 Yen. It consists of 3 levels with observation decks, cafes, shops and a glass floor area.

The first level is also where you can buy the ticket to go up to the second level, which is 451 meters high. This ticket costs 1000 Yen.

Some people might ask if it is worth visiting, and if so is it worth paying an extra 1000 Yen to go up to the second level. Personally I love views of large cities from a high vantage point, so for me it is definitely worth it. Being just 100 meters higher you might think that there would not be a significant difference in the view you will get but having visited both levels I can certainly say that there is and that it is probably worth going up another level, especially on a good day.
