Some detail of the stairway to the Tian Tan Buddha, the world's largest outdoor Buddah, on Lantau Island. In the distance is the South China Sea. The way back down was via the spectacular Ngong Ping Skyrail.

Wow, what a spectacular view!! And I love the sharpness in this photo! The stairway in the front, but also the montains in the back!! Well done!
Great colours and contrast!


Hello Terry!
I congratulate you for such a beautiful and splendid shot. You really have selected great POV with a good DOF. The sea with the Cumulonimbus and Cumulus clouds over it is giving a very wonderful look. This thing in the left bottom corner, a pillar structure I do not know what to name it, is placed very well in the frame which makes this image exceptional.
Its very good being in TL as you can find much about the world at a glance.
TFS, indeed a very well shot and pp work.


Hello Terry,

Excellent POV and DOF!
Perfect focus and excellent light and contrast!
It's a great work!
Congratulations and TFS

The view and sharpness are really good but can't see the stairway

I really like this shot Terry .. love the depth. The richness of the detail in the stairway here, is the real stand-out feature for me in this shot. Great job.

Simply a splendid shot with such wonderful control on light conditions, Terry!

The sharpness and POV are perfect, and the cloud formation is one of the interesting parts in the picture. The colors are very natural and they are very well shown through this lovely work. The stone carving are just the artwork to enjoy for ages.
Great contrasts exist within this exceptional composition!

best regards,

Sorry, out of smileys for the timebeing. Hope you don't mind.
