Hong Kong and Kowloon from Victoria Peak by palmbook Hong Kong and Kowloon from Victoria Peak by palmbook
The most popular spot to take photos in Hong Kong?

The night life of Hong Kong and Kowloon from Victoria Peak

This photo seems to have a little problem with color profile. If your browser is color-managed and your monitor is calibrated, but doesn't have wide enough gamut, you might experience color shift toward vivid magenta. The actual color is more bluish.

A very breath taking photo of a very unique city in the world!

What works:
The nice play of the colours against the night sky of the busy city is always a "crowd" pleaser with how you shot it with a triangle of the city lights. If this was intentional it worked very well,if not, even better.
The soft glow of the city lights against the darkness of the night is ,also,a nice contrast to the scene. It is a nice offset to the very crisp lights in the front of the photograph. Making a lovely layer of crisp,soft glows,distant lights and the purplish haze of the night sky.


What didn't work:
Keeping in mind that is was shot from the hill above the city, the one thing that I would have done differently is to pull back a touch more to give a hint more of the city against the trees. The photograph has these wonderful,hazy,shadowy trees in the corner and none in the middle that feels just a bit unfinished.

Other than that the shot is amazing!

4 1/2 stars for vision due to the reasons mentioned above.
4 1/2 stars for originality and that is only because it is a more common,but, no less uniqiue view.
4 1/2 stars for techique for the same reasons listed above.
5 stars for the impact of the photo overall as it is truly an eye catching piece.

Nicely done and thank you for sharing it!

Perhaps I'm seeing it with a little color shift, but it is a great picture anyways!

This photo is breath-taking and eye-catching!
The combination of the blue night sky and the red-orange lights of the City is just perfect.
It's exting to have a look form above on such a big City - I love the way the bulidings seem to glow because all of the lights.
Moreover the photo is in a very high qualitiy which makes it even better.
Absolutely well done! :heart:

Thank you so much :) I am going back to Hong Kong next week and hope to capture the city again, but from a different vintage point. If you like this shot, I think you will like the new photo as well :D
