    Without the cars this could be a scene from the middle-aged. It is a sad story that you tell about this place. I think that you use HDR here and I like the way the colors turned out.

    Hello Angel,
    This photo has a very fine light, which makes the colours of the reservoir and the surrounding hills intense and beautiful. The village looks so nice and makes a fine contrast to the soft hills behind it.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Christiane,
    I like this fairly unusual low angle, which makes the houses and indeed the tower look taller than perhaps they are. All the buildings are quite fantastic and very photogenic and the photo gains a lot from the inclusion of the boat, which brings the view into modern life. The light and colours are superb.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Jean-Claude,
    This is a spectacular view. The castle looks like a fantasy castle, not quite real, but it catches everybody's attention of course. The setting among the green hills is fantastic and the long line of fine buildings is very attractive. It's a well composed photo where the road creates a solid foundation and the hillsides provide some nice diagonals. The exposure and colours are just perfect.
    Kind regards,
    Gert.

    Hej Erling,
    Detta är en bild helt i min smak. Även om jag oftast gillar gatubilder med människor så missar jag inte gärna chansen till något så här superenkelt. Det är så raffinerat och elegant och en typ av komposition som jag kan tänka mig att hitta i ett konstmuseum. Det är väldigt snyggt gjort och fångar min blick direkt.
    Hälsningar,
    Gert

    Hello Jean,
    These little animals are so incredibly cute. We used to see them quite often in our garden when I was a child in the countryside, but now, living in the centre of a big city, I haven't seen one for a long time although I think they could probably be found in parks. This is a very nice photo with fine sharpness and a superb green frame.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Alexandre,
    This is another astonishing composition from this extremely scenic area. I imagine this excursion by boat near the waterfalls could be quite exciting. In any case the red boat is a superb eye-catcher in the relatively quiet water, with the masses of water falling with a thunderous noise in the background. It's a dramatic and beautiful photo.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Denis,
    This is a perfect little beach, looking perfect for a personal visit but also perfect for a photo. The rounded area of sand is nicely surrounded by a green hill and facing the beautiful turquoise water. The beach in the distance looks equally pleasant. It's a photo with wonderful colours and a nice glimpse of people, who benefit the composition even though being so small.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Benny,
    It's an amazing scenery, looking almost a bit surreal, like smoke coming out of a low island in a stormy sea. It doesn't look like anything I've seen with my own eyes.

    Hej Gert

    That's another great picture worthy of a second life here. You must have been travelling by train in China roundabout the same time as Paul Theroux who then wrote his famous book about it. Maybe you met?

    Train travel has undergone huge modernizations in China, both trains and tracks (and bridges, and tunnels, and more bridges, and more tunnels...) but it is still a wonderful way to travel. That is to say: we still like it a lot. And my guess is that this Guizhou landscape hasn't changed much from when you passed by.

    Thanks for sharing this kind of shot here.

    Long may you run!

    Benny

    The rocks in the fg do seem to other-worldly. I have never seen a dinosaur's back, but they do remind me of crocodile shoes.
