Living in Hong Kong I get to travel through the Chep Lap Kok airport every time I go anywhere, which is great because the airport is the best in the world. Yes, I know, I am biased but there aren't many other airports around the world that look as good and work with such efficiency.

I've always been meaning to undertake a spot of photography at the airport yet I've never really got round to it until now. I think it's because I generally don't walk about to much after I passed through immigration. My route usually entails picking up a magazine, moving to buy up an Americano coffee before finally walking to my gate. Since my gate was number 21 and first on the left I didn't have much walking to do and thus had more free time.

This is an HDR processed in photomatix and converted into black & white using Silver Effects Pro. Sorting out the ghosting from all the people took me ages (at least 2 and a half hours). Let me know what you think.

Not usually my kind of shot but I've just found myself spending ages looking at all the details...there is lots to see and it is very engaging, with people at just the right points, making just the right shapes. Great comp too.

Thanks for the comment Jeni - glad you kept looking at the details! haha

HDR isn't always my cup of tea but this scene was crying out for it as I couldn't keep any of the planes exposed. They were always over exposed!
