Eastern Sun by paikan07 Eastern Sun by paikan07
Hong Kong
2011
gradient filter on lense

It was my second night in Hong Kong. I woke up at 5am and couldn't sleep anymore so I took a taxi and went to the Peak to watch the sunrise. I stayed there for almost 2 hours and took around 300 pictures, playing with exposure and white balance. I was really lucky because conditions were idyllic. I will submit a few pics I took this morning but this one is most probably my favorite.

Same place as:

(this one was shot with Instagram, the same morning)

EDIT: MANY THANKS FOR THE DD, ALL FAVS AND COMMENTS!!! :dance:

Nice clean shot on a nice clean day. The visual framing of the black mountains with the dark clouds on the upper corners just works here in centering the skyscrapers in the middle. Nice selection of photo location...great clarity and perspective.
