First off - I found it very challenging to really capture the feeling of Hong Kong. There are a few "money shots" that are of the Hong Kong Island or from the peak which are easily accessible and genuinely epic shots although don't really capture the emotion of Hong Kong. In the city there is really only shopping and office buildings which really reminds me of Midtown Manhattan to Madison Avenue (really commercialized culture and tons of name brand shopping). However, it's clear that there is another more scenic/coastal area of HKG where the lifestyle is much different than the city...a retreat almost from the hustle and bustle. The city is actually comprised mostly of rolling hills and coastline although the highest concentration of people is the urban developed area with more skyscrapers and high-rise condo buildings than one can count.
I can't help but wonder how it feels to live in HKG compared to NYC as a local. NYC has a strong suburban population but is mostly middle/upper class. HKG seemed to have a much wider economic gap between the worker class and the (let's say) banking class in the city. This could just be an outsider's perspective but that's how it seemed. Anyway, the city really is quite picturesque with the juxtaposition of the buildings and mountains. The only city that seems to compare is Cape Town/Table Mountain, but with a city on a much smaller scale.
This photo is made from a fixed lens FujiFilm X100 Rangefinder. The X100 is a great street camera but the low light capability of the sensor is something not to be dismissed for night time (or day time for that matter) landscapes. It does great for long exposures and at high ISOs. Processing: FujiFilm X100 | Lightroom
