You mean lovely clear day by Hong Kong standards ;)
I have been here two years and still don't have a decent shot across the harbour because the pollution is so bad you often can't see the buildings on the other side. :(

Yeah, the haze sucks hard in HK. For best results, try going out the day after a typhoon or rainstorm, the wind/rain gets rid of the smog.

I really like number 4, its a shame they put the wooden barrier in front of it.

Some very nice shots here!

The Temple/Garden shots are great color "counterpoints" to the cityscapes (together with the haze)!

I grew up in Los Angeles County (California) in the '60s and know all about city haze -- fortunately we had places where we could "get away from it all" -- beaches, mountains and such!

Thanks all. Yes, the haze does seem to be a big problem. I've only ever been there for very short 2 or 3 day business trips so I was lucky to get out for long enough to get these shots. Would love to go back for a proper visit at some point.

A bit of an old thread, I know, but I recently visited the Nan Lian Gardens, which is where the OP took his shots. They had those wooden barriers at several locations around the gardens. I really wanted a decent reflection shot so, after scoping out the guards and casing the joint, I hoped over one of the barriers....
