Wonderful pictures! Thanks for sharing, LuckyJ26.

Your views of Hong Kong from that observatory in that hill are awesome. Brilliant work!

Looking forward for more pics from you.

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain.

I REALLY REALLY wanted to go to China, but as a poor college student, I couldn't justify spending $140 just for a tourist visa. It's insane how much more it cost for US citizens to enter China compared to other nationals. Instead I used that money to backpack through Southeast Asia.

Brillinant! I love this. If I may, I'm going to use this as my wallpaper. The balance of neon colors along with the night sky with the trails of the cars really captures the energy of this wonderful city.

The US charges minimum $160 for Chinese visitors to get a US visa.

Visas are a reciprocal thing.

Great Set! I loved my trip to Hong Kong three years back. I really enjoyed your street scenes, and the faces of the city. I'm glad you represented my hometown of Chicago in photo # 29 of the Coyote Building on North-Damen-Milwaukee...
