    Hong Kong's OTHER skylines....

    Well, I had an older thread here showing some Hong Kong Panoramas (over a year ago), but these skyline shots were all taken from the "usual location". This "usual location" is on the Kowloon side, called "Avenue of the Stars" and even features viewing terraces, it's located just east of the Tsim Sha Tsui Star Ferry Terminal.

    Now, by just changing the point of view to Hong Kong side one gets completely different views - the shots below were all taken from the promenade around the HKCEC (Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre) in Wanchai:


    Central's skyline during the "Symphony of Lights" show:



    The "Double Skyline" (Hong Kong and Kowloon) during the "Symphony of Lights" show:



    Kowloon skyline - rarely shot:


    Kowloon skyline: Why does nobody shoot the skyline of Kowloon, especially at night? Apart from being far less impressive than the skyline of Hong Kong Island, these shots do face one difficulty: The rapidly changing and most of the time (99% of it actually) way too bright advertising banner of the Prudential Insurance atop of Star House.
    Have been lucky here, only got the text...

    Very nice... Another common place to take photos of Hong Kong at night is from a few spots along the track around The Peak (Mt Victoria). Very nice spot for some good photos too.

    Really amazing shots. Can I just ask what you do for a living? Is photography your job, or is it a hobby?
    Cheers,

    Photography is just a hobby - since many years.

    Well, as a hobby (I'm just starting to get into it a bit more over and above the usual point and click) I hope I can get shots this good some day. These are the type of shots I would love to take and then print out and frame.
    Cheers,

    These are great shots! Makes me want to grab my camera and take a few out the window right now.



    What a beautiful city.

    Well, one can do a lot of amazing things with a P&S camera.

    A lot of pictures in my flickr photostream were actually taken with a Panasonic DMC-LX2:



    The picture above shows my "carry everywhere" setup. Fits into an attaché case. And the little Gorillapod does come in very handy when one suddenly needs a tripod. Just wrapped around a handrail, lamp post or whatever.


    I really like to use my DSLR - its definitely a more versatile tool for taking pictures - but the "dress code" on the job does not always allow to tote the entire DSLR setup incl. a much more massive tripod around.
