Hong Kong, Kowloon sunset

it can be a bit tricky to find the right exposure time when taking pinhole photos against the setting sun. The 84° angle of view naturally creates some vignetting in the image.  When composing the picture we can take advantage of this effect by placing brighter areas of the composition towards the edge.
