Thanks a lot.Yes they are. Over the course of the last year and a half or so. Making the cityscape shots is a matter of patience. You have to wait for clear days and nice light in Hong Kong especially.

What camera (body/objectives) do you use?

In the picture of Bank of China with the black-coated man in front: what shutter-time/apperture/ISO?

I use the canon 5D plus 17-40 and 70-300 mainly. Some images were taken with my old 20D as well

The shot of the man in black coat (the statue) is a manual merge of three exposures with the camera on a tripod at ISO 100. Almost all these pictures are. Some are merged in Photomatix as well. Or just elements of the picture are taken from a HDR.

Nice! I have also photomatix, but I don't really use it.

Do you live on Victoria Island?

Do you have pictures of the new Kai-Tak area?
