Thx!!!!

Nothing special. I used a canon 17-40 lens @ 22 mm f/10. I bracketed the exposure and the used a gradient layer mask to use the darkest image for the sky and a lighter image for the foreground.

Let me guess...
probably along Sir Cecil's Ride, the Braemar Hill top is on the right.

You are very close. It's the hill right next to Braemar hill. It's very close actually but much easier to reach.

Awesome shot, Ribarca (we use the same camera gear, apparently). One really gets a sense of the "bookending" effect ICC and 2IFC have on Victoria Harbor. The symmetry is wonderful.

the funny thing however... since the land is reclaimed. Surely it counts as a man made structure? Therefore ICC should be 490

Ribarca - thanks for my new wallpaper!

It'd have to have been something beyond stunning to knock off Megan Fox bending over - and it was.
