TAG | Kong
It seems as if a lot of people would like to know how I did this. I will post a tutorial about it, soon but not now because I am writing my exams. Check back if you are interested!>
If you award please comment also… Thanks!
I know Trey did it better, much better! Others did too, but this is why everybody is doing it. If you ever stood at the peak you will never foregt this moment. It’s majestic, kind of sacred
Srry for getting poetic but Honk Kong in my mind has the most impressive Skyline ever seen. Too bad when I was there clouds have been all over the place even though I waited for 5 hours to get a clear view. Sometimes life is unfair!
The Post processing was done from a single Raw file. Photomatix -> Photoshop -> some magic and the Nik Color Efex for the dark tones and the saturated reds.

I had a long day waking up at 5 AM to take a series of subways and trains up to Shenzen for some meetings. I had a Chinese VISA, which you don’t need to get into Hong Kong, but I had to use to cross the official Chinese border after getting off the train. I didn’t realize that it was a one-time use VISA, and I had to go to Shanghai the next day. This caused a lot of problems with the Chinese officials, a body of government with which I do not enjoy causing problems.
Anyway, after I got back to Hong Kong after a day in Shenzen, I was hot and sweaty and in the sort of meeting clothes that aren’t great for being hot and sweaty in. But, everything about Hong Kong was still awesome and I had too look hard for things to complain about. The sun was setting, and I made it up to The Peak just in time for a shot.
This was a 5-exposure HDR shot at 100 ISO, and, of course, a sturdy tripod to get all the lights as steady as possible.
