Here are two photos , both of which show waterfalls.
One was taken at the Niagara fall, the water was crashing down in all its mighty.
A boat full of visitors was edging towards the waterfall while a rainbow appears to the left. The picture was taken by my classmate KC Ching.
The second picture was taken by me at the Nine Dragons Group of Waterfalls in Yunnan, China.
The pictures are in dialogue, speaking to each other – with a similar theme but at a different scale.
Instead of a motorized boat, the second picture shows a small sampan being maneuvered near to misty waterfall.
Please enjoy :-)

I like comparing and contrasting between pictures.
Here are two pictures taken at Sapporo, Hokkaido in Japan.
Both were taken by the waterway and have similar backgrounds.
The Winter scene was taken by my classmate YM Chan.
Whereas, the Summer one was taken by me.
I dislike touring around during Winters, so have never been to Sapporo when it was snowing.
However, I must admit that the Winter one is more interesting and moody!
This will be my last submission on the theme of Rule of Thirds.
I have always loved lotus flowers.
They always look serene and meditative.
The photo with the flower on the left third was taken by my classmate YM Chan.
Please enjoy :-)
Those who have been following me know that I love Trees.
Here is another photo which follows the Rule of the Thirds.
I am sure it wouldn’t look so interesting if the tree is captured right in the middle of the picture.
Just another post to illustrate the Rule of Thirds.
I am never tired of photographing the surreal scenery of the limestone columns at Zhangjiajie. Please enjoy :-)
The burning incense is on the left third of the picture.
I have taken this picture at Man Mo Temple, Hong Kong adopting a slow speed.
The smoke just floated from the left to the right side of the picture, blurring the background and giving it a sense of motion.
I don’t think Hong Kong has ever been named as the City of Lights.
But I am sure visitors who has been to HK are impressed by the colorful lights they saw around the Harbor, up in the Peak or in the urban areas.
I have mixed feelings about the lights. I don’t mind the lights at all in the festive seasons but consider our light pollution and energy spending can be reduced.
Here is a picture taken in Tsim Sha Tsui, by my classmate YM Chan, during the Christmas of 2014.
The picture of the Peninsula Hotel seems to have very few colors and looks very interesting!
