Your first shot is definitely worthy of the Photo of the Day spot on the home page!

But why and how were you stopped by a local? What's the problem of shooting photos at night with a tripod? I've done it many times and never had a problem so far.

Beat me! I have absolutely no idea. I was taking the third pic (the main street one), a guy just walked by and stopped and told me not to take pictures or someone will come forcing me to stop photographing.

Don't get me wrong, he was very polite. I just can't figure out why take pictures on main street at night will piss someone off. Anyway, I'm a new comer on this community, I just wanna stay out of trouble, so I just got my stuff packed and went home. :)

I have almost forgot to take my camera and take some pics while I was waiting for my fried noodle duing this typhoon night.

Enjoy!

Anybody else got good pictures of anything Lamma-related?
Landscapes are welcome, but other types of photos would also be most welcome:
Anything unusual, people, orginal characters, closeups of things, walls, artefacts, lightning, night shots, even abstracts.

Let's make this growing Photo of the Day gallery uniquely Lamma and a collection of the very best and most interesting photos we can take on our island. Non-Lammaites are most welcome to submit their photos as well!

Here's today's shot from Eric, a most unique and rare shot with fine timing, cropping, colours and composition:

That's what you would see yesterday when you're heading the ferry pier after at Green Cottage.

Enjoy!

Well, definitely worthy of Photo of the Day status!

I've improved the dark areas a bit abd pushed some of the individual colours a bit. OK with you, Wingman?

That's why I took the day off work yesterday. NIce image.

L-G - looks like you've "blown" the whites a little.
Could've used the Shadow/highlight tool in PS to bring the darks out, & then in "curves", lowered the white point in the top right hand corner (that'll takew care of the whites) & then adjusted the curve to bring out the colours.

If it's of any help

Yeah, it's always a challenge to put green objects (like the palm tree) in front of a bright sky, because the green will be burnt. It's very hard to have details on every part of a high contract image, if you wanna keep the details of the clouds, you will have to give up the green......anyway, thanks for the advice!

BTW, LG, my name is Wingman, not Greenman! :P

I'm always looking for more photos for the Photo of the Day section on the home page. Send yours to info@Lamma.com.hk and show off your best shots on the home page to your Lamma friends and acquaintances!

Pretty nice shots with all the colourful canopies, making it look like toy city.!

Got a bigger, sharper (and maybe sunnier) version of this shot for the home page?

Hi, can you please take down my pictures (nohanjes)? If you want to post pictures that you get elsewhere on the internet, you should at least provide a proper link to their original site. Thanks and have a nice day.

Of course, we'll be happy to provide a link (website and/or email link) to any Photo of the Day contributor who asks for it.

I've been asking each photographers about this when we started this spot of honour on the home page, Photo of the Day, but nobody has wanted a link so far. Sorry for our oversight, not asking you explicitly about the link.

OK, I've added the link to your Flickr pages to each of your Photos of the Day where people can find many more of your great photos of Lamma, HK and places around the world.
