Hong Kong at Night

by Mike R March. 30, 2009 411 views

Various night shots across the harbor. I was using a little point-and-shoot, and I had to go through various gyrations to get decent shots. I would point the camera at the water, just below the line of lighted buildings on the other side, press the shutter release half way to meter it, raise the camera up to frame the shot, rest the camera on a rail to steady it, and shoot. Needless to say it was process of experimentation, but I learned that without my big camera and tripod, I COULD still get some decent images.

How did this dork get in the shot? ;-) It's clear that Hong Kong can be very warm and humid even at night in July.

Funny thing: None of us really noticed the people in the background until after we took several shots. They were having fun with us, I think.

Awesome night shots.. the people in the background of the last one are a crack up! And 'of course' you can get good shots with a p & s... I almost never use my DSLR any more, I LOVE my little Canon G10!

Hi Mike, I thought I had commented on this yesterday. I must not have clicked on the little 'Post Comment' button:) These are great night shots. I really like the first one with the clouds illuminated and #2 with the laser/lights and the reflections. Great skyline to capture.
