Malaysian, Hong Kongese, Filipino (well, in reference to myself who was behind the camera) .... quite an international bunch. Here we are, discussing most things under the moon and over the lanterns during the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. Most people were gathered in circles lit by lanterns and glow sticks in the beach areas to celebrate the transition of seasons.

Weird that some folks thought this was dark. It's a night shot, isn't it? One of my favorites for this challenge. I love the intimate mood created by the warm lamps.

Amazing! This looks very much like the mid-Autumn festival in Hong Kong! The warm glow of the lights, the earnest expressions on their faces, and the comfortable mood established here are so very nice. 10

Just abit too dark on my monitor. I did save and lighten it and can see more of your shot. The crop at the top is too chopped off but I do think the light colors are pretty.

I would have cropped the photo a little at the top to get rid of the person on the far top that is not involved in the group, I find her distracting trying to see what she is doing back there.
