The red Toyota Crown taxis of Hong Kong Island, heading up Cotton Tree Drive (I think?) - using just the red and yellow channels.

Beautiful! Such a "mundane" scene but you've made it so beautful through the excellent composition. I like the muted colors and the way the cars lend just a hint of color that takes us inside the image.

Love the depth in this one, and the way that the colours are all crammed into the bottom.
