HONG KONG CITY OF LIGHTS

This is the Hong Kong where at the night the city seems to have a second life, hard to explain but it has a different feel.  Come along with me to explorer a few images I captured of the city lights on a few buildings flooded with light and others in reflections from the buildings close. One of my favourite a high tower with a envelope of light around the building with a new message every 5 seconds, a continuous story unfolding to wrap the building a traveling circle billboard. See the second image in the set below note the rabbit going around the building. The same building on image twenty-six show the continuous kaleidoscope of lights the tall billboard offers up till midnight, then dark.  One young man put a marriage proposal wrapped around the building for his bride to see while they were dining on the other side of the bay, cute.  Take a look at what fascination of light are waiting for your camera in Hong Kong.  I especially like one tall building captured right at the blue hour, the cobalt blue sky you see is “not photoshop” but actually what the camera captured.  The blur effect in the next few images were created by slow shutter speeds a few were intentional I included for a different art sort of look to the lights, traveling on the second deck of an open air bus helped too not to mention camera being hand held.  Here is the answer to your next question:  Canon 7D with 16-35mm lens 1/13th sec @ f 2.8 ISO 800 @ 16mm hand held cobalt sky image.
