Connaught Road

This is Connaught Road in Central around 10 pm on a weekday evening. About 120 years ago this was the shoreline of the HK island. Nowadays it is a major passage linking the island to other parts of HK, or even the world -- check in your flight at the Central terminal (behind the building on the right), take the 23-minute airport railway ride and you'll be on your way.

Lisi,this has got to be one of your best photos, the light the colour and with movement. Makes me want to rush to the nearest city. Never mind I'll just have to go to the beach.....again!!

I completely agree with the others - I cant imagine how you took this awesomus photo - the colors and lighting are superb - I enjoy the black buildings and colorful street ways!

What a perfect shot! U must have used a tripod to get such good movements and perfect lighting, no?

hey, i just discovered your blog and i love it! i live right across the border in shenzhen and have a very similar website, except i post about 3-5 photos per day. i only wish you were not on blogspot, because that is blocked in china, but at least its not something that i can't solve with a proxy!

I agree with others; this is one of your better photos. I enjoy the color, the movement, and the night-life feel to it. Good job!

I'm also curious as to where you were stading when you took this shot..on an overpass maybe??

Anyway, thanks a lot again for helping me out while I was away.

A great picture. It really invokes a mood. For me, it gives a stressed-out feeling

 

Blogger Pierre said ... (May 30, 2006 3:39 PM) : 

Gorgeous pic. Wonderful exposure. Perfect!

This is a great photo. I think you need to change to your profile from 'not a photographer' to a good photographer.

Blogger Kris said ... (May 30, 2006 4:39 PM) :

i agree with Loise, its time to change ..;)

 

Blogger Lisi said ... (May 30, 2006 5:14 PM) : 

Thank you for the compliments! This is such a typical HK night photo :-)

Jesse -- welcome to my blog
Karine, Jenny and Midnitebara -- I was on a footbridge like the one on the right and I just put my camera on the ledge and let it did the exposure.

Louise and Kris -- how about changing that to "almost a photographer"? Frankly I'm not always happy with my skills ;-)
