    Looks like such an amazing place! I especially love the composition of #2 :)

    I might just be a little crooked, but the horizon in #1 seems a little higher on the right...is this intentional?

    Beautiful shots!

    Thanks!

    not crooked at all :) I was thinking about this myself ... actually the lens was not perfect, nor was the perspective. so I have the problem of the verticals not being parallel.
    I decided for the tall building on the left to be exactly vertically aligned since it is the largest ... that leaves the buildings on the far right slightly tilted :(

    maybe I should heavily postprocess ...

    That first shot is a jawdropper...I love the lighting, and the tones. With the combination of the skyscrapers, the boat traffic and the hills in the background, it's like a one-shot encapsulation of how I imagine Hong Kong to be. I hope to see it myself someday. Thanks for sharing.

    I really like the first and fourth, as Antarctican said the first is a jaw dropper and I love the movement in the fourth from the flags
