Layover of fifteen hours between flights from Australia and to Finland doesn't give much time to get to know the city. But train trip to Hong Kong Central was definitely worth it. I continued by ferry across the strait to see this. Skyline of Hong is for sure one of the most spectacular in the world.
Then trip back to the airport to sleep on a lounge and wait for the departure in the morning.

An excellent shot in low-key, the enlighten buildings and their reflections are well-coupling.
I perhaps would have preferred more dark sky on the top and a less sea down.

I agree to you, it is a fantastic place that you have captured here. The light and the colors are excellent and the reflections make this impression very pleasant. TFS!

That is such a good title for this capture, hahaha, it's happened to me many times.
Good night shot, the colours are wonderful and the reflections across the water are brilliant.
Hong Kong at night is a spectacular sight.
I hope you got to a good restaurant while you were there.

Indeed worth a stop (actually much more if you ask me), and you benefitted here from the special chinese new year lights.
Have a nice sunday JY

beautiful nightshot from your short trip to Hong Kong. I especially like the colorful reflections on the water, but the colorful lights of the city are beautiful too. Good work.

Hi kari, excellent night shot. You must have been so tired, but your photography did not suffer. The colours are beautiful, as are the reflections on the water. Well done, Lisa.

I've heard that Hong Kong is an amazing place to visit and this photo is fantastic. It is a very colourful city from what I see here. The reflected colours of the city on the water - like a rainbow. TFS
