Hong Kong grabs any excuse for a firework display, and the Asian games opeing this evening provided a pretty sound one. I think my PoV on the Peak circle path was a pretty good plan, along with hundreds of others. Any TEers up there?

Well done for the management of lights exposure.

What an overwhelming sight! You managed the light perfectly here and one can detect many details in your photo. This really must have been an unforgettable evening. I like how the fireworks is framed by the tower buildings.
Greetings from cold and wet Germany!

You've got one TE loner down there. I should have decided going up the Peak instead of the Tsimshatsui promenade. It was too crowded and limited space to take a position to really have a descent set-up. The entire stretch was bordered by 'volunteers' doing nothing but wave and cheer. They literally obstructed viewers or shall I say 'for safety' they were used as human barriers to avoid people scrambling along the railings which I think was a good reason for this, after all people stated pushing each other towards the railing at the end. Though the area was limited the entire stretch from the Star ferry up to the HK Space Museum were closed! Only infront of the New World hotel and Avenue of the Stars were open to the viewing public. It was a long night, worth the wait seeing the fireworks after.
BTW here's one of my captures down at Tsimshatsui promenade
