Incheon is a metropolitan area with a population of almost 3,000,000.
It was the landing point for American troops during the Korean War. Its major attractions include a Chinatown, the port, and the airport. Incheon Airport was awarded the best airport in 2012 and second best in 2013.
This is a shot of Seohae-daero street near the port area. The picture is facing north. At the north-eastern point is the Chinatown which is close to the Dongincheon (East Incheon) area. Dongincheon is a shopping/restaurant district. The famous Shimpo Market is located here. If you love spicy chicken then you should try the fried chicken at Shimpo Market.
During the day, this large avenue is filled with trucks trying to access to the port.
Thanks for reading.

Cool nocturne shot! Lights of moving cars and a nice dark-blue sky give a superb effect! Informative note.
Warm regards, Les

i was working in Kobe for a few weeks, which is a sister City of Incheon. They make a lot of advertisement there for Incheon, in the subway, on the railway stations. I saw a lot of Incheon Pictures, but never a night shot.
Thanks for the info as well,hope one day Korea Comes up as a work assignment, too for me.
Best regards, F.

great blue hour photo. I really like it. However I believe you could have achieved a bit more impressive effect taking this photo a bit sooner. Usually about half an hour after the astronomical sunset wrks the best. The dark areas would preserve then some more features. Great idea though and an interesting POV,
