Hong Kong’s Repulse Bay

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it. Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Before I went there, I always visualized Hong Kong as a massive urban area teeming with people and buildings. So I was pleasantly surprised when I got there to tranquil scenes such as this.

This is Repulse Bay, reportedly named after the British warship HMS Repulse that anchored here in the 1840s. This image is scanned from a slide made over 30 years ago. Although the slide had deteriorated, after I used Photoshop to convert it into a ‘painting’ I thought the result looked pretty good and brought back some happy memories.

    Hello. The conversion from slide to photo/painting is a great success, well done! Hong Kong would never have appealed to me either as I am not fond of cities, large or small; but this picture of the bay is beautifully serene.
