more night shots from Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. the white edifice at the center of the photo is the Hong Kong Cultural Center which sits at the tip of Tsim Sha Tsui over at Kowloon island. there was a colorful parade as part of the lunar new year festivities in the area the night i shot this. we wanted to be there but tickets to get you closer to the action were sold out. some of the shots i have posted of the hong kong skyline were taken from the viewing deck along the waterfront promenade in front of the centre. also visible in this photo are the historic clock tower and the famous star ferry terminal.

adjusted levels and sharpened a bit in PP. hope you like it. thanks for viewing :)

Ang ganda nito, Peter. Galing ng exposure. Well done on the composition as well. :)


Yan naman! Spectacular view. You can make out the form of the buildings just by their lights...galing.

greath lights sea!
I like it

Fascinating night view of Hong Kong .Accurate exposure!Well done!

Superb exposure, sharpness and color here Peter! Excellent night shot! amazing!

Hi Peter,
Good exposure time...all the lights look super. Well focused (good use of the tripod) colors are fabulous and a very interesting view point.
Good shooting my friend!

partner talagang mas bagay ka dito sa HK. Next event...Dragon Boat!

And yes, before I forget, galing ng kuha mo na ito!

Hi Peter,

My orthodontists' office is an HSBC building (bottom right corner) what a small world eh? Great colours, especially the smooth effect the colours have on the water. Wonderful image, there's a jazz intrumentalist, Jeff Golub, who has a song titled 'Nightlife' images like this always flood my mind when I hear it. Great image, and I'm not even a city girl. Very well done! Superb colours. :)


a good effort. Personally i'm feeling that tall building would do better off-centre (as it's tending to 'divide' the composition).
Nice lowlight effort all the same.
Best regards, Daniel
