Remark Photographer
JA8537 (cn 46967/265) Taken from the top of a 27-storey building, where we got this wonderful view as backdrop, and where even fast-climbing planes appeared to sweep by at eye-level. Thanks to fellow a.net photographer Mr. Alan Tsui for finding this spot. (Nikon F90X; Fujichrome Velvia)

Great shot. I'm pretty sure that the ship in the photo is the former Stockholm which was involved in a well known collision in the 1950s

Awesome shot. Great view of the crowded sea land and sky of Hong Kong. The white color of both boat and plane bring a nice contrast from the water and buildings.
