Hong Kong Island Streets

This is one of the big streets near the north shore of Hong Kong Island. The good thing about the local infrastructure is, that pedestrians don't have to bother about getting across those streets: About all skyscrapers are connected by pedestrian bridges. If I remember right, the building with the huge pillars on the left side is the rather futuristic Lippo Centre.

Actually, the Lippo Centre and its style lead me to give the picture a futuristic and surealistic post processing. I applied lots of local contrast enhancements for letting all those tiny cars pop out of the street, and I increased the saturation of red/yellow tones for the cars and the blue tones for the skyscraper. I've linked the original, unedited file so you can see what I started with in the Gimp.
