Picture taken from the Avenue of Stars. Behind the female statue is the HK Island. HK left me with the best of memories, a city well worth visiting again.
Hope you like the picture, and critique is welcome!

A strong contrast between the statue in the foreground and the buildings in the background. The balance in your composition is very good and the colours are all very attractive. A very fine picture1

I've been to this place last year. I like your composition and the way you worked with the background to create a futuristic mood. Nice title as well.

This one strike me with its elegance and contrast (between the FG and BG). Nice POV and subdued colours.
