Photographer's Note

The Former Supreme Court Building in the foreground, with the Bank of China Tower in the background.

Built 1900-12 as the supreme court building, it was designed by Sir Aston Webb, the architect responsible for the East facade of Buckingham Palace, the Victoria and Albert museum, London, plus many others.

"The Legislative Council Building, also called the Former Supreme Court Building, was the home of the former Supreme Court until 1985, when it was renamed and became home to the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. It is located in Central Hong Kong, along the eastern side of Statue Square, directly west of Chater Garden." (source: Wikipedia)
=====================================================
The photo was taken in awful heat (around +40C). Everything around seemed to be melting.
----------------------------------------------------
This photo was scanned from a printed photo. The original negatives were left in HK forever, unfortunately, so now I have only the printed photos.
Anyway they were printed in HK in a good photo studio and they are of good quality.

The photo acquired this painting-like look after I reduced noise and sharpened the image. No colour adjustment.

I have another version (with less noise reduction), but somehow this particular variant seemed a bit funny and unusual to me, so I decided to post it here. I'll post another version of the image in WS.

Thank you for viewing the picture :)
