Here is one of the first photos I took on my recent trip to Hong Kong.It was taken at Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui with magnificent view of Hong Kong´s skyline(even if foggy).
Some facts about the aveniue foun in internet:
To pay tribute to outstanding professionals of Hong Kong's film industry, to promote tourism industry, and to consolidate Hong Kong's position as Asia's World City, the Avenue of Stars which is located at the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade was given a glittering official opening on 27 April 2004. It was opened to the public and visitors from all over the world from 28 April 2004 onwards.The Avenue of Stars is a HK$40 million project financed by the New World Group.

Hi my friend,
Your today's shot is quite surreal, Bruce in the limelight and a gorgeous BG with the HK skyline, I would have avoided the couple at the right...Anyway, a good and interesting image.
Have a good day!

That's a new one, Krzysztof.
Well placed off-center with the harbour and Victoria as backdrop, even with the fog.
A tribute by HK people to a local "hero", a known movie player.

like this shot. A great sculpture of Bruce Lee and so perfectly placed in the frame to give a sense of scale and presence when shown against this backdrop. The low cloud actually adds to the effect as do the railings. Super detail and an outstanding presentation.
Regards - Brian.

Great image Krzysztof
Depth and scale provided by Bruce realtive to the b/g skyline. Well positioned in the frame.

i have the same photo of the statue but shoted in the night.As ever the same foggy atmosphere with the bones of the habitants to are very 'wet' i think.Excellent presentation and well chosen POV.

senza dubbio una delle tue foto più belle e suggestive che ammiro per la bellezza della composizione con la statua che domina la scena lasciando in secondi piano i grattacieli della città e per i colori delicati e sfumati che contribuiscono non poco.
Una nitidezza eccellente permette di ammirare tutti i più minuti particolari della statua. Allo splendore della composizione contribuisce anche il cielo che nel suo grigiore rende morbida la luce, sfuna i colori e attenua l'impatto dello sfondo leggermente sfumato nella foschia.
Complimenti. Uno scatto di gran classe.
Ciao e buona serata

Funny capture of this cinema symbol. I like the POV, well taken.
ACL1978 (5789) 2013-03-14 3:37
Wow, Kyzysztof, what a fantastic scene here! In tough light you really gave life to this statue with excellent framing; the slope of the walkway gives some movement to the scene, as does Lee's pose here. Wonderful detail on the statue, which is itself great - full of implied kinetic energy all the way through. Amazing misty skyline in BG.
I see Juan's comment about the couple in BG; I agree, though it also would have worked to get them full in frame, thereby providing scale.
Awesome shot, thanks!

Czy ten pomnik to nie jest przypadkiem Jackie Chan, aktor z Hongkongu w czasach swojej młodości? I pierwszy plan i drapacze w tle bardzo ładnie wyszly

Splendide statue qui rappelle l'enfance avec les film de Bruce Lee, superbe cadrage avec la brume sur la ville, belle réalisation
abmdsudi (26295) 2013-03-15 8:10
I like the fact that the visitors in the distant being part of the compo adding the important scale as to the size of this famous sculpure, I think some sunshine would do this the power of good, even though its overcast this image has excellent color contrast and a more gripping image. The format suits the subject very well and this is obviously there for the tourists but the important thing is that the atmosphere complements the subject matter well. Congrats, TFS

I see you were really "blessed" with the HK weather, haha. Impressive clouds:)
The shot is wonderful! The "action" statue in the foreground contrasting with the moody backdrop of the sky and high-rises - amazing! I guess it's Bruce Lee out there:) I didn't see him when I walked down the Avenue of Stars though I must admit I didn't pay much attention to that place which was right behind our hotel:)
Thanks for your beautiful work and have a great weekend!
Noel_Byrne (7426) 2013-03-15 11:28
This is brilliant, and a perfect memorial to the great man. That you have composed this so well, with the statue to one side, and the astounding city beyond is even better still. I love the idea of this Avenue of Stars, and this picture makes a perfect advertisement for it.
I am really enjoying seeing a new side to this city through your shots.
All the best

Piekny widok z Alei Gwiazd w Tsim Sha Tsui!
Doskonaly POV i kompozycja, super kolory i piekna glebia.
ourania (12427) 2013-03-15 13:52
your composition is well balanced, dynamic and suggestive and makes great use of the moody lighting and colours too. The way Bruce Lee (if I'm not mistaken) is associated with the foggy and mysterious distant cityscape is marvellous, they are superb reference for each other. Your point of view also makes the iconic hero's posture and expression as he rises above the skyline meaningful and captivating. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Hi dear Krzystof
I love Chinese martial arts movies, especially the comedies. Is this Bruce? An excellent photo, composed superbly with the wonderful city in the BG. Interesting that you chose the vertical frame, I probably would have too. You did really well with the light and that overcast sky that was doing you no favours.
Thanks for sharing

to zdjecie przypomina mi jak wielkie wrazenie zrobil na mnie Bruce Li, gdy bylam mala dziewczynka. Za kieszonkowe kupilam nawet jego podobizne do wprasowania na moja koszulke ;-)
Ladna glebia i bardzo dobrze wybrany POV. Bardzo d obra ostrosc.

Dzieki za zamieszczenie zdjecia posagu idola z czasow moich dzieciecych lat! :)
Pogoda bardzo dobra do tego typu fotografi - rownomierne naswietlenie umozliwia pokazanie szczegolow rzezby a chmury w tle tworza dramatyczna atmosfere. Bardzo podoba mi sie kompozycja z wiezowcami w tle.
Pozdrawiam i zycze milego weekendu

The statue adds a lot of foregrond interest, and as you say, the impressive skyline looks great even in the fog. The long walkway creates a nice perspective. The splash of blue in the stonework is a nice addition. Very nice work:) TFS. Enjoy your Sunday.
Best regards, Erling

Swietna kompozycja pomnika Bruce Lee z wiezowcami w tle.
Dobra glebia ostrosci.

The sculpture is a very good representation of Bruce Lee, I think that's who he is supposed to be. I like the low hanging mist, it adds to the mood. Good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
adidas5nb (1131) 2013-03-31 1:45
great picture.the dark low clouds and the rails add to the essence of the bruce lee statue and its expression.very good light management...and the back drop of hong kong is wonderful.

Die Skulptur erinnert mich an Bruce Lee, trotzdem eine sehr gute Arbeit, gratuliere!
Wünsch dir ein schönes Osterfest!
serp2000 (29242) 2013-04-06 1:55
I was waiting for this photo. Good tribute to Bruce. I like the misty background too. Well done.
Have you got a plan for next trip?
Have a good weekend!

The big presence of Bruce Lee in the foreground is a fitting way to showcase this statue, and his renowned fame and popularity. The weather may not have been the most desirable, but it still made for some moody conditions and atmosphere as the stormy clouds hover over the skyline. In fact, I really like how the foreground light gently fades to the back, taking me into the scene. There's enough detail and viewable skyline to make this composition more expressive, especially considering the pose. I even enjoy the couple in the near background, adding to the sense of depth and scale. You made the most out of a cloud filled sky with dull light, kudos for a great finished image. Well done. Thanks for sharing this portion of the Avenue. have a great day.
