Caption
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)

Right time and place for this pic. I wonder how long they had to wait for the boat to get in the right position?

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.

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
