This was a night hike chasing the supermoon. The moon played games and did not show her face. Hong Kong though smiled at me.

Thanks to me daughter Iunia to help me pick up the shot.

Happy with my new lens Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS

How could one translate "palatul de clestar"?

Congrats on the well deserved blue!
I've stayed at the Harbour view hotel (somewhere down on the right of your picture I think). The weather was capricious [or crap, for short].
Only had time to visit the prescribed tourist locations. I love your local-knowledge vantage point.

I am glad you like it Peter. Get your scan done, get well and I'll take you to that spot!

Be well!

Told you that lens! Fantastic Tibby, you are quite the master of street and night photography. Love your work my brother.

Tomorrow, for me is scan time again, next week news time. I am tired of the pain/relief, live/die waiting games. And then comes this image and I utterly enjoy exploring every detail. And then I realize, there is so much to live for. You are a pillar in my life!

and yet there is a sinister quality to the night, looking in from the outside, from the darkening vignette.

Tiberius, I think you might have a blue here. In any case, see you in the ribbon winners circle. ;)

Really nice shot of Hong Kong, definitely your best yet of this city - the processing is masterful, with a really fine and delicate touch.

Well done, and good luck!
