Hong Kong isn't all concrete and crowded, in the countryside there are many lovely hiking trails and small waterfalls like this (in Sung Shan). This one, in particular, wasn't that hard to get to. Just take a bus into the countryside and then 20 minuts walk would lead you to this stream and its waterfall. Even so, you need to be very careful getting there because the cliffside's rather steep and slippery.
It's also my first time shooting this kind of landscape picture. However, I did not have adequet equipment such as ND or Warming filters for water shooting but thankfully I was under a shade and the 1/2 shutter speed is good enough for the fast flowing water. The warm and saturated feel is further enhanced by Photoshop.

This is a beautiful slow-shutter shot of this charming cascade of water. The details of the rocks are sharp and the water flow has a mystical quality. Excellent composition with multiple water falls in the frame, all well-shown. Well done.

Yes, the countryside of Hong Kong offers many hiking trails, and thankfully they mostly are easy to find.
Your shot is very calm and easy to relax to, very beautiful and technical good since you didn't have the right equipment. Patience and knowledge is just as good. The colors of your shot is very attractive, especially all the warm colors and the small places with green plants. In all, great work!

Exploring different kinds of shooting shows your versatility. You have the technical knowledge to capture the difficult situations, with lack of tools you manage to make the image work flawlessly.
Dude you braved the hottest weekend here in HK ;)

Little waterfall wonderfully presented. Smooth flow of water that also brings light to this dark scene. Rich colours of wet plants and rocks. Just lovely.
