    In Hong Kong, the urban streets are dotted with countless street lamps and huge neon signs. These contributed to the serious light pollution. Therefore nowadays even on some of the clearest evenings, only a few stars can be seen regularly in the urban areas.

    This shot is a ringer for urban submissions. The looking up perspective really gives me an immersive feeling of being there. Besides the madness of the angular/boxed in density of humanity there is also the juxtaposed sweep of the sky above. I also think you nailed the center framed composition. Strong work with the long exposures and combined images all in the name of telling a story and bringing an unexpected strange terrain to life!
