I think it´s the most famous view from Hong Kong.Probably a view you´ve already seen thousands of time,but I couldn´t resist this one:)
I processed the image using cyan method to give it a little bit different look.
I hope you´ll like it!
Btw.it´s HDR taken from 5JPG´s

Hi Mr. Kusy!!
Congratulations on this milestone, and thanks for each of your posts!!
You choose a very beautiful one, futuristic it looks as a "Blade runner" image. Excellent work with 5 images, wonderfully done!

200 skyscrapers for the 200th photo!
wow, what a b&w! this must be the world of tomorrow, looks even hyper-cooler with your steel-sharp treatment and nasty color(lessness). i feel like electrified after midnight. i like how you still have the "glow" despite your HDR work. compliments for the 200th.

Congrats on you 200th!
A beautiful glittering night shot of HK skyline with lovely lights, good detail and great control of long exposure to produce this magnificent image and the treatment in mono is so well rendered. A well composed shot with all the right elements well blended together emphasising more on the solid structural shapes without colour distractions. An excellent shot and tfs, Congrats

cześc Krzychu, Nie przypominam sobie tego widolu na zdjeciach, oszałamiające! Fantastyczne zdjecie, podoba mi sie ten kolor, dośc niezwykly i zdumiewająca ostrość. Gratulacje z powodu 200 zdjęć! Dopiero 200? Ale za to jakie zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam i czekam na dalsze 200, potem 400, potem 800... Małgorzata

I am sitting here looking at this, and I have a huge smile on my face. The ultimate photo for me is one that brings me out in a huge smile, and this does that perfectly. I would very happily print this scene out and enlarge it, frame it and hang it pride of place in my living room. Looking at this reminds me of Blade Runner, as I picture myself and millions of others, walking down below in those streets, surrounded by mountains of neon, in the rain of course.
This is an amazing scene Krzysztof, and is like looking into the future. Incredible work.
Thanks as always for sharing your work.
Best wishes from Ireland
macjake (59970) 2014-01-28 1:23
Oh man...I'm going to make a prediction!
I will predict this photo will reach 100 pts!
it certainly deserves it.
I absolutely LOVE the black and blue/grey color combo.
all I can say is WOW WOW WOW
your BEST post EVER!
have I said WOW enough?
SnapRJW (31625) 2014-01-28 1:42
Hi Krzysztof - I am lost for words here..... what a beautiful shot! The light glows and works so beautifully with the bluish toning. This must be one of the most evocative shots I have seen here in a long time.... 2 points are not enough! What a wonderful photograph to celebrate your 200th posting. This should definitely be printed and framed, it would look fabulous on a plain white wall.
Warm regards Rosemary

congratulations on your 200th posting. You are a consistent performer on here and I am a big fan of your work. I remember "the peak" shot so distinctly and this treatment has made it take on a completely different atmosphere and dimension. Needless to say I am impressed and inspired by this treatment. I works so amazingly. Love it! Keep em coming.....
adramad (39770) 2014-01-28 7:26
Congratulations on these first 200 images in TE, which have made us enjoy with your good work, desire and hope to enjoy many hundreds more.
Great that you have chosen this, with spectacular view over the skyline of this great city, beautiful as they look at night contrasts between light and shadow, and the B & W image qualifies much better.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.
ikeharel (61453) 2014-01-28 7:31
Good evening Krzysztof,
The stunning lights of HK, under a B&W format gave a beautiful metalic tone and texture to the scenery from the Victoria top's.
Exquisite sharp details, every building is shown clearly, 15 sec. exp. well done.
I have a day-time pic. from the same precise location.
Fine 200 post, best regards,

Good day my friend.
Nice perspective and beautiful colors, I like the way of thinking.
Photo reveals the psyche of the photographer and painter painting.
All the best and good evening
ourania (35080) 2014-01-28 10:08
this is a captivating image, you've really succeeded in enhancing the fascination and atmosphere of this suggestive view. I like very much how the foreground opens up and frames the amazing cityscape. You've achieved impressive sense of depth and excellent definition, the exuberant character of the city is rendered in a very elegant and vibrant way. The homogeneous tint you applied in this frame exalts, in my opinion, the details and makes your photo so stylish. Congratulations and thank you for this picture and for the beautiful and ever evolving work you have presented so far! I wish you many more travels and fascinating pictures in the future!
All the best, have a great evening,
cornejo (34626) 2014-01-28 11:37
Krzysztof Witaj, wow! excellent photo of this super interesting night view taken from a considerable height, very well captured in this interesting image with good sharpness and interesting light. Excellent and nice job perfectly done, congratulations on your 200 post my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good night and happy week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-01-28 11:41
per festeggiare il traguardo della tua 200° fotografia hai scelto un bianco e nero molto suggestivo elaborato a perfezione.
Una visione fantasmagorica di Hong Kong che affascina con il sfavillio di luci in una notte che rivive con i bagliori delle luci.
Complimenti e auguri.
Ciao e buona serata
mesutilgim (88186) 2014-01-28 13:59

chrislo (4155) 2014-01-28 14:41
What a breathtaking spectacle of lights ! Stunning panorama of this glittering city at night with amazing light and detail. The skyscrapers glowing brightly in the darkness create a pure magical sight. A glorious picture to celebrate your 200th post. Very well done.
jcpix (13726) 2014-01-28 16:33
Seen a thousand times before? Sure have...and when it's as good as this, I say bring it on a thousand more! I get the distinct feeling I've seen this particular one before though?? ;)
The added wrinkle of the cyan coloring is just magnificent, making this a cut above the rest. A perfectly suited scene for the panoramic format as well, which enhances the subtle vertical lines of light shooting up from the cityscape. This has a strong futuristic vibe about it, "metallicy" and super modern. My only question now, where are the flying cars and spaceships? :)
Loving the heavy contrast in some of those buildings and along the foreground base, it really gives the imagery stronger dimension. An inspiring and impressive view, made all the better with this result. Bravo good sir! Congrats on the milestone, here's to much more my friend...keep 'em rolling in! Take it easy.
Cheers from Sunnyville,

Zawsze sądziłem, ze ten widok jest lepszy od Manhattanu, swietnie zrobione, a kolorystyka sugeruje tajemniczosc

First of all, my congratulations, Krzysztof!
Perfect quality, impressive night photo, it is a result of your skills. Good choice for the milestone! I like your contribution to the Trekearth. TFS!
subhendu_bagchi (25973) 2014-01-29 1:37
what a shot! Great presentation of these skyscrpers from a unique top angle. Love the effect of monochrome treatment. Razor sharp and noiseless with such 15sec shutter speed. Great one. Tfs.
PS- CONGRATULATION on your second century. :)

Naprawde bardzo mi sie podoba.

Lep pogled u noci ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana moderna arhitektura u noci.
Dobar rad, lepo ulovljen trenutak.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.
Nice view at night ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated modern architecture at night.

Witaj dear Krzysztof
Congratulations on your 20th photo. How quickly time flies! And what a way to celebrate! The inky blue/black tones are magnificent, what a wonderful, innovative and artistic post processing. The panoramic cut works a treat. Congratulations.
Thanks for sharing and congrats once again on your 200th!
jhm (142852) 2014-01-31 4:53
You create depth and perspective with a wonderful architecture in background.
Excellent captured, also perfect taken.
Nice presentation, pleasant to look at.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
annjackman (20539) 2014-01-31 8:54
I know here you were standing but I haven't viewed this at night, and I wish that I had. Fabulous HDR work that gives the city a glow that suggested the very busy and lively place that it is.
Kind Regards, Ann
Cricri (110295) 2014-01-31 9:38
Impressionnant de voir cette ville avec tous ces buildings et ces lumières, tout bon POV, une vue ma foi fascinante ou je me sentirais encore plus petite!! belle version N/B et un HDR au top pour cette 200ème image, félicitations et bonne continuations
siudzi (34131) 2014-02-01 12:06
Wow! Znakomita praca! Widok noca na to nowoczesne miasto jest wspaniały i absolutnie wyjątkowy. Jestem pod wielkim wrażeniem artystycznego wyrazu oraz świetnej techniki. Brawo! Gratulacje!
trevormoffiet (3112) 2014-02-02 0:20
This is a masterful image for your 200th. It had never occurred to me that HDR could be applied to B&W. Well-done.
Sonata11 (33526) 2014-02-03 21:21
moje gratulacje na twu stene zdjecie. Dokonales wspanialego wyboru. Widok jak i kolorystyka powala nas kolana. Slicznie wykonane zdjecie jak i caa kompozycja. Super ujecie jak i swatlo. Wspaniale pokazales jego oswietlenie. Ten kolor robi wrazenie jak by to bylo na innej planecie. Super!!!!
Kamilutka (8103) 2014-02-04 3:38
ladnie wyglada ta panorama w czarno-bialym formacie. Jak zwykle B&W zdjecie ma sporo wdzieku i specjalnego klimatu. Dobry POV, ktory pozwala na bardzo szeroki kadr i swietny DOF. Doskonala ostrosc i zrownowazona kompozycja z zatoka urozmaicajaca morze drapaczy chmur.
P.S. Oby wiecej takich rocznic! :)
marina7 (8055) 2014-02-05 10:35
haha...and here's "the other side of the moon" and you chose it to celebrate your 200th contribution!
Yes, classic view but I love the way you went for black and white here with a neon blue tinge to it stripping this famous place of all colors and making it look cold and sparkling. Just like a starry sky. Beauitiful!
Congratulations and best wishes!
Hansaphotos (7205) 2014-02-07 8:24
Congratulations with your 200th post on TE!
I can see that I`ve missed some great pictures in my absent, and this is one of them. The view is absolutely stunning. I remember a wonderful colour version you posted earlier. This is a different version that works perfectly well. The fog creates a great mood for the scene. Fabulous work:)
Have a nice WE.
mcmtanyel (15587) 2014-02-13 21:05
A very crisp night view of this famous territory was enhanced by your postprocessing. Congratulations on your 200th!
Indrasish (2893) 2014-02-14 8:34
Congratulations my friend for your 200th.. Like the wonderful shot.. The long shutter speed gave here the real beauty.. Like the composition and the panoramic view.. I also like the sharpness and the superb image quality.. Very well done my friend..
And best wishes from Kolkata..
josepmarin (57841) 2014-02-21 4:32
though a bit late, I want to congratulate you for your 200th post here.
And this is an impressive photo, with an amazing view on the beautiful architecture of Hong Kong, with the fantastic effect of the lighting of these tall buildings, and a nice night atmosphere.
adores (39894) 2014-02-25 17:19
Congratulations! You have chosen a very good shot for sure! I like the pov and the PP, you got a really good result. The city looks amazing! Hope you keep posting many thousands more!
ACL1978 (7511) 2014-03-29 16:21
Hi Krzysztof - just saw this gorgeous shot - your 200th! - which I missed when I was away from TE... and what an amazing one it is! An explosion of light coming up from the ground through the skyscrapers from this outstanding viewpoint - a classic one, sure, but even the old can look new and you've managed it here. Really wonderful and well deserving of all the praise.
