Photographer's Note

Hong Kong is a fascinating mix of the old orient and an international commercial hub. Here we see a traditional style Chinese "Junk" plying the waters in front of the highrise skyline of Hong Kong's Central district.

The warmth of the lighting from the sunset behind the towers completes the scene.

In reality the boat is part of the burgeoning tourist industry and does harbour cruises, but you wouldn't know from first glance; and that's part of the charm of HK. Remember, things aren't always what they seem!

Nikki/Cherryripe was wondering about a horizontal format shot; and it just so happens I have one here if anyone else is interested.

Tech: EOS 10D, 24-105 IS f/4 L @ 83mm. f/5.6, 1/180th. Converted in DPP. Sharpened and resized in Photoshop.

P.S. If you like it; why not buy a print!

P.P.S. I'm now also posting on Flickr; but don't worry I'm also sticking with TE :)
