    Hi Jean
    surprised to see this in the vertical, but it gives you a totally different view with the curve, and allows for 2 distinct focal points, top and bottom. very rustic, very raw and real subject matter. warm light, lots of textures, and lots of history too. fine post. cheers

    Hi Daniel
    hmm...i had no idea of the importance and history from this city...guess i learned something new today.

    and i'm sure the red and green are purposely chosen by the owners here. lovely shot in the vertical format, the lighting is A+, its a cool cultural shot. cheers

    Hi Marie Louise
    this is quite the display of colors! Not sure how i missed it when you posted it :)

    but at least i'm getting to it now.
    love the reflections as they cascade down onto the water and extend outwards to the bottom.

    the black areas are key for obvious reasons, it all comes together so well. fine post
    cheers

    Hi Bev
    hmmmm....reminds me a bit of my early HDR days when I was trying to figure it all out.

    Personally, i think the WS 'normal' photo is just fine. but as you say, its fun to play around and explore different settings and features. why not add more drama and life to the scene, nothing wrong with that. really like the boldness of the lettering and numbers, they're quite powerful here. cheers

    Hi Stephen
    yup, larger than life!
    another fine example of how and when to use the wide angle lens. the church has such strong lines in this set up.
    powerful and demanding attention. cool post, and it stands out well with its white and red combo. cheers

    Hi Krzysztof
    for me, its actually the striking red wall that made me click on the photo. and we can see red on the bench below as well.
    really like the pattern too, and the distorted reflections are a bonus :)

    Hi Malgo
    again, its incredible how many places you visited in China..its as if you spent 3 years here! you certainly moved around alot and got to see such contrasting places all over the country - i'm impressed.

    this lake is impressive too, it hardly even looks real, or from planet Earth. bonus points for having a clear day with the clouds over the mountains. beauty!
