iReport: Dramatic photos of Hong Kong
We asked for your best images of Hong Kong and you came through in flying colors
iReporter Melvin Francisquini reckons that taking good photos requires a lot of patience. He shares these tips on taking great snapshots of Hong Kong:
"My tip is to not be quick with the click," says Francisquini who is an American currently living in Japan. "Enjoy the city and wait for the 'Aha!' moment you have inside your stomach."
Francisquini likes images of imposing icons, like a grand old junk or the IFC building, and advises avoiding crowds, "because they are inevitably going to ruin your shot." He also stays away from town on busy weekends.
