Skyscrapers and High Rises (of Hong Kong and Macau)

This challenge closed about 5 years ago.

The Challenge

Think 15 storeys (US: stories) and higher. Think business skyscrapers or the many high rise living buildings around the territories. Hey, even think some of the taller casino hotels of the Cotai Strip… whatever you like as long as you do not need to squint to see the tall building.

You can look up, down, across water or land. You can photograph, paint, sketch, even put it on a phone cover… as long as the focus is on the tall building(s)

One rule is that you must be able to see the height of the building in some way… in other words a close up shot of just some of the middle floors is not OK

Cityscape/Single building, all good! If in doubt just bubblemail me!
