It had been quite a few years since my wife and I went to Hongkong and got to see a disappointing Symphony of Lights. Yes, it was not that extraordinary. In fact, it was overhyped.
Maybe if there were pyrotechniques included, it could have been different. My wife got the chance to visit Hongkong again this year and she was able to get a very good panoramic photo of the sea harbor where the Symphony of Lights is.

This one was taken on a ferry while they were having dinner during their awards event. Pretty cool right? Taking a good panoramic photo of the Symphony of Lights is the best way to appreciate the view.
