"see you"

夕陽無限好,只是近黃昏
Sunset is such an enchantment, alas it comes to an end...

Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter, Hong Kong

FUJIFILM X-E1 1/400 second F/3.9 ISO 400 129 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...

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

A gorgeous scene with those wonderful colors and silhouetted masts.

What a dreamy shot this makes . . all about travel, hopes and destinations.

Beautifully composed, I can imagine the halyards of those masts rattling in the breeze

Travel by sea and air all in one picture!
Yet it feels so unlike the Hong Kong that you usually bring, reminds me more of somewhere like Nice or Monaco!

Evelyne Dubos from Le Mans, France

Beautiful colors in the sky and slihouettes on it. Like the detail of the plane in the triangle of masts.

The red-orange-fired striped below the clouds mattress is such a beauty that cross the masts (like crosses on top of boats) and of course the bird adds its touch, as if swimming high. Ode to seashores, or is it to skyshores ?

Wonderful shot - I love how the plane tries to catch up with the sun, leaving behind ever darkening shadows.

I should have noticed that a bird can't have such glittering eyes, but I told to myself, Hugo can find that too ;)))

As usual, this is very very beautiful and I guess good things really don't last too long...otherwise they may not be as special...or something of the sort. Lovely image Hugo!

Basile Pesso from Barcelona, Spain

This picture is fantastic. The layers, the verticality, the plane, the rhythm. Could have gotten a spotlight.
