A brief description of Macau from Answers.com:

An administrative region of southeast China comprising Macao Peninsula and two offshore islands in the South China Sea west of Hong Kong. A Portuguese trading post was established here in 1557 and became a free port in 1849. Macao was a Portuguese overseas province until 1999, when it reverted to Chinese sovereignty. The city of Macao, coextensive with the peninsula, is the capital. Population: 457,000.

All very neat pictures I especially liked #4 with its Baroque features reminiscent of cathedrals in Spain and Portugal that I love! #2 and #3 quite appeal to me, especially, should you clone out the apartment buildings : )

Thanks Bahadir for viewing and giving comments. A good idea to have the domestic buildings cloned away. Pete

Regarding the green, these are the reasons:
a. They are green by themselves;
b. I have used a circular polariser for all the shots here, which sharply increased the contrast;
c. I have also used the overcast white balance mode to tally with the drop in lumininosity from the use of polarizer. The sky then was overcast as well then.

POSTCRIPT:
#1 was taken with the S5 Pro using the slide mode, i.e. Mode F2. You for surely know that the F2 mode is noted for the vibrance in colors it produces.
