After arriving at our hotel, we decided to go for a walk & came upon streets full of illuminated signs. This was one of the reasons I loved Hong Kong & that it was so alive, despite the fact I nearly got killed taking this shot, I bring it to you, but only because the driver had some sympathy for me & stopped.,

I´d rather choose SanDisk. :-)
Great capture of an advertisement-overcrowded street of HK. The street actually looks more like a tunnel.

It looks a bit dark but it is anyway a nice picture. Hong Kong is really a city with lots of neon signs which makes the street bright and colourful. I believe Kowloon really is a beautiful part of Hong Kong. Well done.
PS: I have done a quick WS. Hope you like it.

Just the hectic one excpects of a city like this. Great nightshot in perfect colours.
ktanska (28415) 2008-06-02 22:40
What a tunnel vision. The street is completely surrounded by signs and cars. Excellent exposure.
Two Kodaks work well as a main focal point. But do those other adverts catch significant attention anymore? Are their advertising value even worth the electricity they consume?

Hi, my friend!
Next interesting photo from China. I very like your series. Nice composition. I like your night colours and light. Well done.
kiwi_explorer (12209) 2008-06-03 1:54
Commercialism at its best ... ahhh such a vibrant lifestyle ... no wonder you love it :) You should have a bravery medal for taking a risk just to get this shot :) Wonderfully captured and composed. Well done! tfs
Budapestman (82620) 2008-06-03 5:58
What an impressive and spectacular shot. I like the rich and vivid details, the composition is great. Very effective city shot, Very well done! Have a nice day
Deepforest (9260) 2008-06-03 6:24
interesting night shot. Very good perspective and nice symmetrical composition... I'm happy that you are still alive after so risky shot from the middle of the roadway...
Well done. Best regards,
jlbrthnn (76039) 2008-06-03 8:10
You are surviving:) The city is spectacular and alive, these enlightened signs are rather extravagant by their number. A superb image of one at the same time artificial and alive universe. Cheer.
Have a nice day
maltese (22901) 2008-06-03 8:25
The first one is a shop only for you ;o))
De très belles lumières et une impression de vie trépidante. L'utiilsation de cette perspective donne un sentiment d'infini!!
Très bien vu, amicalement
stego (24132) 2008-06-03 9:34
Being the only Far East big city that I know, it reminds me Bangkok, for its frenzied life and all those neon lights. A very vivid capture, but not so great that it was worth be killed or injured for it. :-D
amazon (12112) 2008-06-03 9:56

Hi Wilson, great urban view with splendid light and fantastic colors, beautiful perspective, very well done, ciao Silvio

A nice night catch here.
I like the perspective and the colors you caught here, beautiful job,
danyy (0) 2008-06-03 14:51
des prises de vue délicates, pas facile à gérer cela, d'autant que tu semblais positionné au bon milieu de la route.
La capture est parfaite.
C'est du tout net.
dvlazar (6662) 2008-06-03 16:52
A nice night shot - and i feel the atmosphere of this street from the photo. Great work! Good to risk your life for photography ;)
syd1946 (18663) 2008-06-03 23:38
I found very impressive for the captured of the city's atmosphere and excellent as a night shot.Great perspective,night lights and details and a lot of the city's rythm at night!
Have a nice day,
danos (100894) 2008-06-04 0:54
Good morning Wilson,
nice shot and representative of the confusion of the Hong Kong streets like this one.Very dangerous to be killed taking photos in the middle of the street,but the result is great..I did not dare to take a photo like this one.Excellent the colors and the light.
rodgerg (55767) 2008-06-04 3:46
A photograph(good POV) wich shows very well animation of this street and this citi (cars, peoples, light,..) Colors and light are very well collected. Good work.
Have a good day,
pablominto (53746) 2008-06-04 10:14
Amazing (and dangerous) point of view!
But let me say the result is most impressive, the atmosphere is well captured with the busy nightlife about to wake up...
Sharp fine details, excellent light management renders great colours!
Tue (40858) 2008-06-04 15:36
A great view along the busy street with a great perspective of the road. The many advertisements look great and you captured them really well. Very colourful too of course! Thanks for sharing!
JCG (35129) 2008-06-05 0:36
You took risks to have a good point of view on this center lane. A photograph coloured with all these publicities. I like much the prospect and depth of the image. Beautiful and interesting night photograph, cheer Wilson.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,
batalay (39563) 2008-06-05 3:15
This is a picture to die for, as one might say, but I am happy that the sympathetic driver stopped and waited. Kowloon is beginning to resemble the Ginza in Tokyo. Great shot, but I take it back, it is not too die for!
gildasjan (43654) 2008-06-05 4:03
Une bonne photo de nuit avec toutes ces enseignes très bien exposées et l'image est bien focalisée.
jhm (156580) 2008-06-05 5:50
A street image with a lot advertises, but also very colourful.
I looked to your WS but I find both pictures attractive.
Depth and perspective are very well, nice presentation too.
Very well done.
Philippe (11836) 2008-06-05 8:05
Hi, Wilson. I didn't know taking photographs could be tat dangerous, but if you stand in the middle of such a busy road, I suppose you have to choose for a fast speed, which you did ;o). The street is very colourful with all the neon signs and there is a good perspective, too. Maybe the picture could have been a little brighter and I think the WS is not a bad version. Another possibility would be to use a tripod and go for a longer exposure and smaller aperture, but that would be suicidal in this case ;o).
patdeph (35748) 2008-06-05 12:25
this is the atmosphere we can find in asiatic cities,I also like this very much!All these luminous sign-boards are welcome for a night shot,they give nice colours and their repetition make a great perspective!Very well done!
Vasa (515) 2008-06-05 14:45
Hi Wilson, friend,
Hong Kong was decorated for your visit and for your Canon. That alive city could do better for such photographer. This intriguant photo invite me to follow your feets. One beautiful day. Until that day I have your gallery for pleasure. Many thanks for your visit. The concrete mixer was honored.
siolaw (38292) 2008-06-05 21:34
A dangerous POV as the cars seem to be coming from behind! and a good frming to have a complete view of this night street. Good sharpness and nice luminosity
robertosalguero (288) 2008-06-06 0:30
I see three Kodak signs but I bet there are more. Interesting night view of this busy street. It does seem like people enjoy a good nightlife in this place. The image is a bit noisy but overall is very well composed and colourful. Thanks Wilson.
bakes888 (18499) 2008-06-06 2:05
Hi Wilson. You have done well to hold the camera so still while almost being run over ;-). Excellent colour and sharpness. Well captured and thanks for sharing.
Cricri (122617) 2008-06-06 9:27
Hi Wilson ,
quel ambiance de soirée avec toute cette publicité de couleurs et lumiére, un grand merçi aussi au chauffeur :-) car le POV est excellent ça donne un joli aperçu du centre ville la nuit
Have a nice weekend for you
kermit350 (9016) 2008-06-06 9:50
Hello Wilson, that it is good photo-report of street, a good promptness in your framing, doubled of an opportunism to identify the good image to make EC place, thank you with the driver, sincerely ...................
Bonjour Wilson, ça c’est de la bonne photo-reportage de rue, une bonne vivacité dans ton cadrage, doublé d’un opportunisme à identifier la bonne image à faire de cet endroit, merci au chauffeur, bien amicalement
gary91 (15348) 2008-06-06 10:48
You live dangerously... I would not cross the street anywhere in HK whithout the red lights turned on!
This is a good mood picture of HK streets, always so busy and crowdy. Nice take.
Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Christian
pierrefonds (68925) 2008-06-09 15:18
The point of view leads our eyes to the end of the street through the publicity signs. The artificial light brings out the colors of each sign. The presence of people has a scale effect. The photo is clear and precise. have a nice day.
andante (7092) 2008-06-10 5:38
I have always find interesting how totally different cultures can remind me of esch other. In this case this image of Hong Kong has remind me of a similar area of downtown Santo Domingo. Something about the quality of the light, the color palette and typography of the (at least of the roman alphabet characters) ads, the materials of the lights, etc. An image in the true spirit of TE.
jemaflor (100181) 2008-06-10 10:03
Well taken all these lights in this street, great perspective, good light capture.
BWJ (3094) 2008-06-13 19:31
What a spectacular POV! The picture is alive with the energy of a busy, crowded city. Your lighting and colors are excellent. I like it very much.
ocskaymarci (2726) 2008-07-05 3:04
I think it was worth to take some risk for this photo, but I'm glad to hear that you're ok! :)
These metropolises have a special mood because of these bright signs. I like their reflection on the cars and the symmetry of the composition as well.
brevbrev14 (140) 2008-09-22 4:51
ciao Wilson, a nice night shot...so busy...full of life, cars, lights...words..
The image is very good also in BW for my taste
Felip (3907) 2008-11-07 12:06
Fantstic night shot is so...lively that attracts you since the very first moment, but if you continue taking risks like this one you will end in a hospital...don't forget to take your camera with you! ;)
