Hong Kong Skyline by Peter Cheung

November 2019 - Hong Kong Skyline

About the Image(s)

The picture was taken on the 100th floor of sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck last month. Hong Kong skyline at night is very beautiful and fascinating. I needed to use a black cloth around the camera because the reflections from the internal lighting inside the observation deck made the shot very challenging. The camera settings are: Nikon D810, Nikon 18-35mm, f/5.6, 13 secs, 29mm, iso-100. In post-processing, I corrected the perspective of the buildings, increased the contrast and color saturation, and lightened up the shadow of the buildings.

amazing. These days Hong Kong unfortunately is in the news for other reasons. I understand you using the black cloth, most cameras have on their belt a rubber piece that fits the eyepiece exactly for this reason. Also, the air seems to be very clear, not hazy at all.   Posted: 11/11/2019 01:52:36

A stunning image Peter. Down here, there is just no image like that, over such a vast are to be found. Great verticals, nice & straight. I love the small amount of horizon in the background that tells me "this is where it ends." Colors and tones are all superb.   Posted: 11/11/2019 04:41:21

Thank you Stephen. Here is the original one. As you can see the sky was a little bit hazy also.   Posted: 11/19/2019 22:27:32
