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)

Very nice pic , with the ship in background.

A visitor from France posted Tue October 25, 2011:
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.
