These time-slice photographs of Shanghai and Hong Kong are beautifully unreal. In each photo, photographer Dan Marker-Moore captures an entire day of those amazing cities from one vantage point. You see day shift into night, sunlight giving way for city lights and it all adds up for photos that looks absolutely stunning.
