The Peak II by Aureta The Peak II by Aureta
Another shot from The Peak, just later at night so the lights are more intense and so I could play around with the colors more. The crop is better on this one.

What do you think? It was absolutely breathtaking. It looks even better in person. The sky was also unbelievably clear that day, so I suppose I also got lucky. ;P

Is it me, or does the horizon seem to curve just the slightest bit?

awwh >w< I really do miss Hong Kong ; A ; and your photo makes me feel nostalgic since I used to live near The Peak in Mid-Levels :iconruncryplz: but I mean, I can promise you that it is better than a lot of the main big cities. Everyone agrees with me that it is better than New York, Tokyo, London and Paris in terms of living standards and prices. Such low tax :iconhappytearsplz:

Seriously? I've been told apartment rent fees are insane. I went to a family friend's apartment that was about half the side of the second story of my house, and it's worth some 2 million USD! :faint: I totally see how it's better than New York... just NY seems dirtier, somehow.

Ah yes where I used to live was worth around 3.5 million USD :D Living near the Peak is one of the most expensive places to live in the world. But I can't say it was great because the apartment in my opinion is small and I didn't like it. So my parents brought a much larger house (something like 5000 square feet) that is about 3 floors but in a less posh area XD
haha yeah NY sighh. I still haven't been to the famous cities in the US apart from San Fran ; A ;

HOT DAMN.
Yeah, I remember being at the peak and looking around at the houses near it and wondering how much they cost. There was one particular mansion to the left that was nearly alone on the whole hill.

By any chance is your old place in the photo?

I've just always had a feeling of NY being more industrialized and HK more modern... even though HK probably faces worse pollution. I guess it's just the style of architecture.

Wow. Have been on the peak in Hong Kong many times. But I have never been able to make a picture nearly as beautiful as this one. Lucky with the day, normaly its quite hazy. But also very skilful and with good equipment.
