Today's the eve of Chinese New Year so here's the picture from Victoria Harbor in Hong Kong to mark the occasion. Though pretty mediocre in quality (shot through the hotel room's window) still it's a very colorful and bright memory for me. Best wishes to everybody.

colourful the lights of the scene from this section of Hong Kong with the reflections to complete perfect the whole scenery.The beams of the floodlights adds a beautiful optical effect in the scene.

Good evening Marina,
Every evening on 20:00 sharp, the HK skylines on Victoria side's, is illuminated with a marvelous lights display.
Crowds always gathering on the bay promenade on the Kwaloon side to watc. So you did, and very well taken the night shot.
Fine light management on a great sight.

Warm greetings from southern Spain.

Well at this distance it looks fine: the static elements are all OK and in one place. Maybe a tad of sharpening could help, but I'm happy as it is. You obviously used some form of camera support. I love the laser lights and the predominantly orange cast. Did you get to the top of the Peak at night? That view is pretty impressive too!

Whooooooo :) This caught me eye the second I opened the gallery, a blaze of light and color and excitement. Looking at this, I can almost feel a sense of excitement for the impending festivities in the air. This is a fantastic capture of the mood thorugh light and color, and of course that skyline is magnificent!
Lovely work on the frame too, really suits this image.
All the best

I haven't managed to get to Hong Kong on my trip to China and your photo makes me regret it very much. It is very good cityscape and the POV you chose allows wide panorama. The lights of the buildings contrast with the dark sky and cast some reflections on the water in the bay.
Have a nice evening

Wow! now that's what I call dazzling. Is there a huge cut diamond on the rooftop of that building:-) Love the bright spots of light illuminating the cityscape. I am fond of natural landscapes, but here I like your capture of the bright cityscape. Thanks for sharing a good photo.

Gong Xi Fa Cai, An appropriate dominating red - colour of good luck - in the night sky and nothing with the power of this! The beams of light perhaps symbolizing an illuminated dragon! What a joyous shot befitting the yearly celebration with your seamless photo works. Congrats

It is lovely to see this as I know the area where you took this picture from. The illuminations are fantastic and a great way to celebrate The red line in the frame works very well.
Kind Regards, Ann

this is a view I could watch all the time!
I´ve been there also once to enjoy the light show(wasn´t easy to get a good place-so many people were there).
And You could enjoy it for yourself from your hotel window-honestly could you fall asleep there having such views outside?
Amazing city and superb composition!
Have a nice day
