Enter the king of cliche

650I had pondered which photo to post since last night. Personally, I like the colors and light of the other one taken at 6:30 pm(<--link), but I finally decided this one (taken at 7 pm) is more appropriate as the king of cliche HK photo. Sorry about the glare, I can get rid of it but have decided to leave it there. Now I've got rid of the feeling that I "owe" you a photo from the Peak...yay...LOL. Btw, do tell me which one do you like :-)

Ignoring the "cliche-ness", I like the 6:30 PM version better. don't often see an early evening shot from the peak.

What I like about your photos is the passion and good energy you use to catch great scenes of your city.

Well, I have to say that I like them both for different reasons, but more importantly, I find them beautiful photos. Like in NYC, I find the views from above spectacular when you know all the life that is taking place below.

Hi, Your photo shows the magnificence of the place, a lighthouse under the Stars ! Radiante Energia. I'm learning a lot from your blog. Thanks!

Both are great shots, Lisi!
i am pondering myself..i think the 6:30pm one is less cliché

Both are wonderful shots but I like the 6.30 pm version more. Have a nice weekend :)

thank you thank you for liking this. I took this from a new viewing deck on the Peak and what I like best is that, using a wide angle lense, I can cover much further to the East side of the harbor. I like this view very much :-)

I like this one best too Lisi! Looks like a sparkly jewel...and I'm sorry, but that one tall roundy top highrise always "stands out" to me...I'll behave myself now! LOL! Great shots! ;-)

I think you have made the right choice Lisi. This is a superb picture.

Both are awesome - it must have been a difficult decision with the over 200 shots!!!


Blogger Eric said ... (October 01, 2006 8:02 AM) : 

See Lisi, there is nothing such as a good "cliche" from time to time LOL!


Blogger Denton said ... (October 01, 2006 9:05 AM) : 

I like the 7PM photo the best. The lights are more appealing to me. If I every go to HK this will be a scene I go out of my way to see.


Blogger Anna said ... (October 02, 2006 4:02 AM) : 

Lisi, your pictures are very very beautiful !


Blogger macky said ... (October 02, 2006 11:45 AM) : 

stunning! It is like jewelry.


Blogger Kala said ... (October 04, 2006 4:44 AM) : 

I preferred the one taken at 6:30 PM since it looks sharper and cleaner but they are both very impressive =) nice nightlights - i took a bunch of night shots through a glass in boston but they all had that reflective glare that kinda screwed up my images

Hi Lisi, I love this photo even if it is overused. I always feel like I am right with you when I look at your photos. Please keep them coming!!!
