one beautiful night

The same place and same evening as this.
I haven't had such a lovely stroll for a long time... Here's the sight of the city at night.
It's such a pleasant surprise to find a beautiful full moon when I turned around.:-)

Expo Promenade, Wanchai, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/52 second F/2.0 ISO 3200 53 mm (35mm equiv.)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

Odd flamingo ! He drinks beer and stretches like an athlete... I like the softness of the light against the bright tower(s).

Makes me smile as I read last night you review of the X-1 Pro, mentioning how it's easy getting a good exposure when shooting this tower (and it's top !) with that camera.
You had no this problem here ! ;-))

@Gérard Beullac: Oh my, I have almost forgotten what a tricky job to get this right! Thank you my friend!:-)

Really impressive considering the high iso speed and then viewing the soft blur of the background. It's also impressive to see the relatively fast fall off of the in focus area, that XE-1 is a hell of a performer Hugo!

Excellent framing and focus, and the usual night shot quality.

Excellent night shot and very interesting scene with this man in the foreground...drinking beer? or maybe an energy drink? and stretching? getting ready for jogging? at night? why not? Life is full of surprises! ;-)

A great night shot. I like the vertical lines in this shot : the man, the lamp and the building

One beer and your foot rises up ? I drink green tea & coffee but why not ? .;) Bulbs & buldings shine in your inviting nights, always !

Hugo, your night scenes are so inviting that they make me want to visit these places. Beautiful image today, showing a charming spot by the water, and a perfectly comfortable night to do some stretching and strolling.

The weather seems mild enough as this gentlemen prepares himself for his walk. What glorious surrounds !!

My favorite building in Hong Kong! All these photos are gorgeous, Hugo. Thank you for them.

Indeed! Specially as captured with your always wonderful white balance and perfect exposure! Wonderful intimate mood.

There is a huge dynamic range in this shot but the quality is good better still it doesn't look too fussed about. Technically and aesthetically a great shot. It reminds me of where you are out in what is to us The Far East. Looking at this I think of Singapore, really pleasant warm evenings to stroll and take wonderful pictures.
I love the one of the moon. I think I can see Orsen Wells in the shadows!
