Pic(k) of the week 16: Symphony of Lights, Hong Kong
Just got back from a three day trip to Hong Kong. Unfortunately the weather did not fully cooperate...
A must do for every photographer visiting "The Pearl of the Orient" is the daily sound and light show, "Symphony of Lights". The show in which 44 buildings take part, runs every day at 8pm and can be best seen from the Avenue of the Stars on the Kowloon side.
Even though there was a short dry spell just before the start of the spectacle, it started raining again and I ended up shooting under an umbrella in +30mph winds. Not an easy task! Overall I'm still quite happy with the images I got.
Nikon D700 with 24-70 2.8 Nikkor lens
ISO200, 48mm, f 5.6, 0,8sec
RAW development in LR4
Nik ColorEfex Pro 4 for Contrast and detail enhancement
