I like realjdi's pic, I never seen the tower from this angle before. It shows the beautiful contrast between the old Kowloon and Union Square.

A wee bit old now, as the ICC is a fair bit taller, but bloody gold.



You can find more of the bloke's works (mostly HDR) - a fantastic photographer, including a fairly detailed tutorial on HDR here: http://stuckincustoms.com

Another old one, but a nice panorama. Union Square in the distance on the left. Showcases emerging Kowloon well.

What a perfect dream of a panorama... in full size it is even twice as impressive!

Only one thing seems to be strange here: where are the ICC cranes?? I guess they must've been absorbed by the glare of the setting sun.
