Hong Kong (3)

by Benny Law April. 25, 2020 310 views

This is my third post of photos of Hong Kong. They were also taken during my last visit three and a half years ago.

This post will consist of all night shots. As I mentioned in my previous post, two typhoons blew through the region within the short period I was there, and these images were taken right after the first typhoon had passed and as the second one was approaching. There was a lot of humidity in the air, and the night sky was really hazy. I had to clean up the images in post-processing to remove the noise and the haze, and some detail was sacrificed as a trade-off.

This is the end of my Hong Kong series. My next post will probably feature another big city somewhere in Europe. Until then, stay safe and well.

I count 6 trams. I love nightscape photography. Love the lights on the buildings makes the skyscrapers look like jeweled structures. #5 is a fantastic capture I know it is the same one as your banner. Hopefully, you have printed and framed it. Stay safe smile

Yup, 6 trams. That's a lot in one shot, but then everything in Hong Kong is concentrated. I'm glad you like #5, and you can tell it's one of my favorites too. I hope I can go back to visit again some day, this time with my daughter as my guide. She seems to know the place better than I do even though she was born and raised in Canada. Her Cantonese is more up-to-date than mine as well.
