I had never heard of him, and the Telegraph's selection left me quite cold 
indifferent, it is after all quite a big claim and one which I felt to be
unsubstantiated. Except perhaps the shot of the parade ground and the one 
"Naked Humour". The print quality on Guardian site is appalling. Yet even
desoite the poor reproduction of the parade ground shot, it showed a sense of
humour and he had obviously seized the "decisive moment".

Buoyed by the parade ground I followed the link and I am now convinced, very
much so. It really is well worth spending ten or twenty minutes browsing the
site. Yau Leung really is an unsung hero. Absolutely brilliant.
