Leo Laksi’s Bangkok And Back

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Hong Kong Island skyline

with 4 comments

For as long as I’ve been coming to Hong Kong, I’ve always been impressed with the view, especially at night from the Kowloon side looking at Hong Kong Island.  I find myself always taking a photo of the view.  I especially like nights when there is a little cloud cover as it lends an almost mystical appearance to an otherwise typical city skyline (except for the harbor).  Sorry if the photo is a little blurry.  Taken handheld at 1.3 seconds (!) at f4.  Note the reflection on the water.

  4. I was also surprised it turned out ok. And I could have bumped up the iso on the camera as high as 3200.
