It's not an insult to me if someone says some city looks like ny but Chongquing doesn't and I just wanted to point out why it doesn't when others says it does. I'm not narrow minded. Narrow Minded is thinking Chongquing is like Manhattan since there are buildings on a strip of land between two rivers.
can you find the third city with "a lot of high buildings on a strip of land between two rivers."

Works fine for me...it's off pbase so that's probably why.

PBase allows direct linking, but it has to be in a certain format.

Pbase can only link photos of those who have paid accounts. I agree with the HK panorama. I like that shot. The only thing is The Nina Tower is missing

The lens isn't the problem but stiching it can be a b!tch

He should have taken the pic earlier when there's still daylight in the sky - would've been perfect then!

Actually there are a couple of places along those hillsides that offer very nice views. Fei Ngo Shan has a wide view but so do other more street-level vantage points.

I find the nightshot more striking compared to daylight. It shows how bright HK can be especially @ night.

A sunset shot wouldn't be that bad either. But I really liked that panorama despite being taken at night.
