Big brothers are watching

The two bright and shiny landmarks of Central (IFC and the Center) seem to be two big brothers poking their heads out to check out these apartment buildings in the western district (yes, over-imaginative sometimes and it runs in the family, see the June 10th post). I didn't have my tripod with me so I was really just holding my camera against a railing and held my breath...and the exposure seemed to have taken forever... ;-)

thats funny with the holding your breath and trying to brace still on the night shots - sounds like me except ur fotos look so much better than my night shots! You must hold ur breath longer than me =D

Nice night shot! The exposure did a good job for me since I really like it, especially the towers colors in the background. Cool shot!

the diff. tones of lights make the shot even more gorgeous! if only blogger.com have a "fave" button like flikr ;)

Lovely. Holding the camera against something often works as well as tripod.

Great picture, one that really looks like the Hong Kong that you see in the movies. =)

Yes breath holding, the saviour of shots! I did the same last night until I remembered I had a tripod in my car. And I agree with Moonsoleil, it does look like a scene from an action HK movie. I expect Jackie Chan to jump out of a window anytime now.

Terrific photo, a real sense of being there. And I too am admiring your ability to hold your breath and brace the camera. About 1 in 10 of my night shots work when I try to do them without a tripod.

Thank you for your footprints and I'm glad you like this photo...

The lights of that needle-top building actually changes color and I'll try to get a few shots and show you later

;-)
