I hoped that weather would be friendlier but the haze (maybe pollution as well) messed with my plans. I wanted to get the light show from a very remote and different angle but the visibility was awful and could not see any of the lasers during the beautiful light show.
See the red ribbon in the challenge of bcenu

.

Anyway I am pleased with the entry and the solitary night hike I took it was very very nice.

I do agree that maybe a tighter crop of the sky would have enhanced the image.

Here is a bright daylight bird eye view: HK form Junk Peak

I think if you had gotten closer too the habour of this city you would have done alot better with this image to much negative space for me

Suggest cropping some of the sky off, brings focus down to the layers.

An impressive view of Hong Kong! The 3 lights near the bottom-middle are very very distracting from such awesome view. Since their surroundings are dark anyway, you might be able to dim them in post-processing?

Simply superb - excellent focus and exposure. Straight out of a sci-if movie.
