    Was in Hong Kong last week at my work HQ and was able to do some touristy sight-seeing with my team before we left (in Taipei right now for Computex). All shots taken with my GH2 and 25mm F/1.4 hand held.

    These make me laugh because I'm American :D

    Great shots. Looking at the photos of the city reminds why I love the countryside so much - a bit crowded for my taste (and hazy!). :biggrin:

    Nice shots! Always love to see my home town from a visitor's photographic eyes...

    BTW, did you take the last 3 shots on a helicopter?

    Good point! I keep on forgetting that there is now a really tall building on the Kowloon side! :wink:

    Yep, top of ICC. For some reason because of the way its built, it doesn't seem very tall when you look up. Taipei 101, which is not as tall, looks massive when you're looking up at it, but I guess thats all perception.

    Great photos! Thank goodness the scorching mugginess of the city isn't seeping out of the photos. Btw, no night shots?

    I was jetlagged and did not go out at night, just passed out or drank at the hotel bar :)

    The morning I was flying out the lens got a little bit foggy from the mugginess though :(
