Buddha in the mist.

Ngong Ping on Hong Kong’s Lantau Island is home to the Po Lin Monastery and the Tian Tan, or “Giant” Buddha.

Po Lin Monastery, Hong Kong

The monastery complex features a massive “big Buddha” statue, as well as numerous smaller statues such as this one, and was built in 1990. I decided on a fairly radical treatment replacing the original sky, (which was pretty ugly) with a graduated colour background.
