A panoramic shot taken at the top of a hotel on which I am currently working (building it, not working in the hotel =P ).

Just submit this when I was stitching as I feel good about it, nothing much.

I have to say this shot is truly surreal. Definitely reminds me of a CG rendering for some otherworldly advanced civilization. Caprica comes to mind.

Man man, that's such an amazing view. I'd love to see something like that, it must be so impressive. I could imagine you'd feel really small in such an environment. And sheesh I love the colours and these cast shadows.This is really quite beautiful :nod: A densely populated place with lots of buildings, but in this capture it certainly radiates a warm and inviting feeling with a sense of lightness.

Great work! :highfive:

Excellent shot. Despite having had traveled most uber cities, HK was architecturally amazing especially function wise.

It was amazing how on a small footprint of 20x24m one had a 40+ storey hotel.

This brings back memories. Its the kind of Vertical City Corbusier was probably thinking about.

The word "city creation" has become taboo in less than 4 months in the Gulf though, :)

Yeah, no good to have so many skyscrapers anyway...but people here are fighting to retrieve more sky in the city, which is a good thing ;)

HK people are in a completely different mindset as compared to the mainland. This has also meant less population boom which is good if they want less skies.

Questions
- Are HK people now venturing out to live in Mainland cities to escape the claustrophobia?
- Hows the recession affecting architecture there? Here, Dubai has been basically destroyed while Bahrain/Qatar/Kuwait/Saudi seem pretty steady but not booming any more.

No idea, but perhaps it is because of the bad pollution and that people here don't want to die, and so they decide to fight for environmental protection things now, including controlling the maximum height for buildings.

Hong Kong people do not go to the Mainland for that reason, and even if they go, there is only one reason: business. Some go because they are forced by their companies while some go because they think they can make more money there. Otherwise, Hong Kong, being a much more free city in terms of many things, is still the first choice to live and stay.

Hong Kong has little architecture, I must say. People are too money-based and they only want to build higher for more flats for sale or rent. That's it. It is pathetic but that is why HK looks like this now. The recession thus doesn't affect the architecture here because there is little already. However, if you are talking about other things, the recession does make an impact here but not a very big. The only major influence is the morale and mood, as people don't spend much like before. A year ago, everyone was having a very happy and luxurious kind of living; now, not more.
