    First of all, I’ll admit to being just a tad jealous. It’s my kind of city too! You know I was in Hanoi last month and it really didn’t grab me at first – I seriously considered leaving a couple of days early and moving to Hong Kong instead! But Hanoi did win me over in the end.

    Some great images Anthony. I like the guy in the tram – this sort of shot always appeals to me. I like your favourite too. I like the colours and composition, and the reflection. But I think I’d prefer full depth of field, maybe – Hong Kong means sharp edges to me

    But my favourite, I think, is the one below. The view down – wonderful colour, loads of yellow and just the right amount of aqua as a contrast.

    Looking forward to seeing your street photography

      Debbie – this is your city for sure. It has a bit of everything plus a towering pillar of colour on top! After seeing the work you produced in Vietnam, stunning, I can confidently say you must visit HK. I would absolutely love to see what you come up with! (Very selfish statement!)

      Regarding my favourite, the depth of field is a really important choice as there is so much information happening, blurring it concentrates the view without the background suffering. I understand you desire of sharp edges, but just after 24 hours of shooting I was feeling really overwhelmed by the cities intensity. Depth of field helps calm the image. I wonder if your choices would alter if you were here. Only one way to find out! 🙂

      I am having difficulty with the street photography – I’ve got my full kit bag with all through the day so being a fly on the wall style tog is not an option for me. I look like a huge brown and black sweating Turtle… Regardless, I got some interesting shots I will share soon.

        Ha ha! I’m never very clandestine either.
        But I have just dug out my smallest lens and smallest tripod ready for a quick trip to Budapest!
        Your next Hong Kong trip doesn’t fit with my travel schedule sadly but I am hoping to get to Hong Kong next year between a work trip to Seoul and a photo trip to Tokyo

    I was forgetting to breathe, looking at these. The moon with the city below, and you seeing it from a dark place up high…. that was great.

    The tree-frames for buildings are beautiful, and the quiet place you found.

    I liked the descriptions, too.

    Thanks for sharing all this.

      I am glad you like the images. I wasn’t sure of some of them as they are so new to me and I tend to be a bit insecure showing them so quickly, but some I think a few totally ROCK BABY!! 🙂 8)
      It’s a great feeling to face a bit O fear and get such wonderful feedback. It gives my journey validation and purpose. Thank you so much for your support!
