MOUNT WEST POINT, HONG KONG

Click on the image to get the full view, then click on the plus icon to move within the image.

Normally Hong Kong is mucky, humid, misty, foggy, polluted or all of the above. Sometimes however the weather is beautifully clear, as it has been for the last couple of days.
The image shows South Horizon, Pok Fu Lam and Cyberport to the left. Lamma Island is in the back. Panning right is Cheung Chau Island, Lantau Island, Tsing Ma Bridge connecting Lantau with Tsing Yi, then Stonecutter Island and the new beautiful Stonecutter bridge, the harbor and West Kowloon and finally ICC tower.

Night view, Fuji 18mm. This lens is mediocre.

Day view, Fuji 35mm. Sharpness is remarkable. Careful, still a big file.

  1. Great effort and phenomenal result! Definitely outstanding show case work out of average Hong Kong harbour photographs. Personally love the night view more than the day one.
    Cheers bro

  2. tolles bild.
    und eine tolle schaerfe.
    das bild ist gut fuer geo.
    grauer text auf schwarzen grund bleibt schwer zu lesen. ich weiss, architekten tragen schwarz, sind aber dennoch noch keine bestattungsunternehmer… wohl mit dem motorrad dahin gefahren?

    1. Guck mal das zweite Bild mit dem 35er. Ein bisschen zu eng aber die Schaerfe ist grossartig. Das 18er ist in der Bildmitte OK und zu den Raendern leider nicht sehr gut.
