Hong Kong public housing

A stitched image of Hong Kong's many public housing estates in Kowloon, mainland China.
Though living conditions are fairly basic and appartement sizes are small, surprisingly bright exterior colors give a feel of welcome and cosiness.

Photographing public mansion like this can be a daunting task, as most are tall and light differences between the base and upper floors vary a lot. In order to get the perspective right, finding a vantage point is essential but far from easy.
