    Named after Queen Victoria of China?

    Hand held time exposures w/o IS.
    That is difficult, no?

    That's an absolutely lovely night exposure. The colors came out just right. Did you have to level it as well as crop? I tend to have difficulty hand holding architectual images level, perhaps because I wear glasses and often have difficulty seeing the entire image frame in the viewfinder.
    Good shooting,

    It was named when Hongkong is still a colony of Great Britain, should be because of Queen Victoria.

    Hand held, I rest my arm to a metal fence, helped to stabilize the camera.

    Thanks Bob

    I found there is a bit tilt at the photo, I will rotate it and reload, the light looks nice for tourist, but I myself not like it much, sort of light pollution....

    For me the light on the clouds above the buildings makes the image - adds drama and movement.

    Really excellent shot

    Yes, if not the cloud up there, I will not take this photo.

    The clouds to add a sense of mystery and aw to the picture. Very nice.

    The simplest and cheapest forms of IS sometimes work the best

    Great shot, love the light of city reflected in the clouds

    Thanks Steve, the exposure time is 4 seconds, not any IS in this world can work, only a tripod helps, I am a lazy guy and seldom bring along a tripod, so I will looking for something to 'rely' on to stabilize. When I make this photo, it drizzles, so I have to wipe off the rain from a metal fence before I rest the camera on it, the E-420 got wet after the shot, but still working well .
