Hong Kong by night

Central Hong Kong puts up a colourful display of neon lightings no matter where you go and look, and over at the harbour waterfront, the Symphony of Lights set to wow visitors nightly at 8pm with its almost-15 minutes lightshow. I caught the show one evening from the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade, and for anyone interested in listening to the accompanying narration, the places to be are the Avenue of Stars and Golden Bauhinia Square (Wan Chai).

In reviewing the night photos from Hong Kong, a couple of things became evident: (1) I need to start bringing a tripod with me for crispier results when photographing in low light conditions, and (2) I need to learn the settings on the camera in order to improve the exposures of the shots. All these grainy images are not pretty sights…

    Ohyes, the symphony of lights is pretty right hehehe. Since the light pollution is already there so might as well make good use of all the tall buildings over in HK island ;)

      But don’t you think the energy consumption is crazy? In Paris, despite its name of the City of Light, we’re switching off more and more nowadays…

    Hmmm..hopefully they are using some low energy design….but those shop neon lights are definitely sucking up the power hooohoo
