A Flare for Hong Kong

By Georden
Shot from the top floor of a car park in Hong Kong. Without a tripod, I had to resort to a handy wall, which did not help ccomposition one bit. After cropping, some small squiggly lines from lights on the passing boat (blurred due to long exposure) had to be removed. I added the flare to disguise a burnt-out area of the building. It reminded me a little of Blade Runner - so it stays!
Thaks for all the comments so far - please keep them coming Smile

I wish! Thanks, I take that as a massive compliment, but sadly no. As they say, necessity is the mothe rof invention! Thanks so much to everyone for the kind words & encouragement Grin

nicely disguised flare, it adds more dimension to the city skyline......a little more contrast would not hurt to bring out the buildings outline....just a friendly opinion, regards.
