Hok Tou is in the northern part of the New Territory in Hong Kong. It has a small reservoiraround whicha country park was built and at which a number of walking trails end.It hasa few camping sites, too,whereboy scoutsusually go to do training for new recruits. Of course,it is alsoan ideal location for barbecue.

I like the way you exploit contralight which is apparent in #2...as you said 'Timing is prime in shooting'. Would like to sit there at the table which enjoys sunlight most under the golden leaves, and have tea! Ah, we've been hiking for thepast week after all : )

Good idea ... butmosquitoes and midges arenuisances that perhaps you can hardly withstandin Hong Kong. By the way, are the midges a problem on you side?

I like to use the centre weighted metering modeto measure light intensity, from which tomake compensation to attain theexposure I want.

Even at this time of the year? This may explain the empty seats despitesuch abeautiful day which might reach 20[suP]o[/suP]C there! Btw, fortunately midges aren't a problem around here at all nor are the mosquitos reallythanks to the precautions taken by the related institutions and municipalities. Thanks also for sharing your good techniques. At landscapes, I do use the centre weighted at contralight situations and recompose so as to attain kind of compromisethrough pp, forspot metering canbe a bitextremeatthe reconciliationstage.
