Hong Kong at night color 750

Our hotel was right on the harbor so we spent time walking along the waterfront most evenings, enjoying the coolness after each hot and humid day.

I often try night photos, and every once in a while they come out pretty well. I was pleasantly surprised when this one actually worked. The trick is to relax, lean your elbows against a support to keep your hands steady, then take a deep breath and click the photo while exhaling very slowly.

I didn’t spend a lot of time adjusting this photo in Picasa – I only used crop, tuning and border. However, the photo had lots of white specks throughout the sky that I had to remove using Paint.
