As typical for big cities, Hong Kong reveals its full beauty in the night, when it scinscillates with terrific, vibrant colours. Energy is so thick around, that it's nearly tangible. Everywhere near you something is happening, there are more of life than you could grasp into attention.
The photo have been taken at Mid-Levels, walking just a little left from the end of that endless escalator. The entire way up was so picturesque, that I am crying I had no time to capture much of it. Hope to come there again for at least a week and take it all! Or may be it should be a few years? Oh, HK, mon amour...

Wow...the effect of the long exposure is really working for this picture. If you stare too long to it you get a bit dizzy ;)

Very good long exposure shot. The roadways are all nice and crisp with the clear energy of moving cars streaking across. The way you captured the bridges and roads all link up into a fluid and very energetic system. It captures the high pace way of life of a large city, coming and going, and in all directions on many levels. I only wish there had been a car also coming down the exit to the stop and then captured slightly ghostly there as it stopped and then left. But that's just a preference that would have been nice but not necessary. It's really full of energy. Well done.

Bravo Vasily, ton image est belle le problème de la couleur de la lumière vient sans doute d'avoir laissé ton réglage sur tungstène ou autre, ce qui fausse la valeur des degrés Kelwin. Amicalement/jr

Very good picture. Nice colours and sharp. But what I mostly like is the compostion with the roads.

excellent excellent shot! I love it. usually these shots are from above from a bridge. this photo gives the impression of being right in the middle of the 'jungle'.

I live by this area, so I can truly tell you captured the feeling of the place. Well done for the energy, the light, the pace, actually ... HK life!

Excellent shot taken at long exposure. I like the curvatures of the roads interfering with each other creating a geometrical pattern.
