This is the best Kai Tak photo, simply because it is a clear, colorful photo, as opposed to the drab colors in other Kai Tak shots.

I love the "bright lights, big city" feel of this photo. There's a certain Blade Runner or Neo Tokyo/Akira vibe to the shot. Excellent.

That is a dazzling photo with the shimmering lights of the city, the reflections on the water, and the big jet at the center. You also show nice contrast of light and dark with the rocks vs the halo of light and foglike effect of the city. Superb

Composition, composition and some more composition. Plus, perfect exposure time & lens aperture. Yes , it does have a sci-fi film quality to it, but , instead of dark , it looks like a New Year's party in the background. Also , the human element gives it perspective, the admired a/c being admired by the admiring. Kudos, Alan!

Bright Lights, Big City!!! Wonderful composition and aperture control. The fog over the city lends to that "other-worldy" glow in the background. Beautiful!

She looks like a big beautiful angel floating through the skies. She's called Queen Of The Skies an rightly so, for she has no competition when it comes to her beauty.

Light and the beauty of quantas 744

First I thought it was a -300, since the winglets are not so easily visible with the red on red.
