Some of these photos are simply stunning. Hong Kong is where I want to be with my cameras and memory cards...

Stonecutters Bridge looks monumental on this picture.

I hope it will have some flashy lighting when it is finished.

Here you can find the "outdated" satellite image of Hong Kong.
Compare those in Google Earth to see the differences

What a great film - it was so awesome to see Hong Kong in all its glory. Usually Western films portray as some run down chaotic sterotypical "Asian" place and never film beyond some shoddy parts of Kowloon. It's great to see a film that shows the world-class, gleaming, sophisticated side of the city. I only wish the HK bit was longer!

Hi all.

This building is a great piece of architecture. The group of buildings it is part of all have very different looks to them - quite stunning actually.

Hong Kong has bar none the best looking night shots of any city - great lighting and colors.
