Those who work hard have every right to relax hard.
Here's to taking it easy...
Wuhan is a hard working city. It's the capital of Hubei province. With only a limited tourism appeal, it strives not for beauty, but for success. It is the economic and academic heart of the region.

This is a very,very relaxing image. That men enjoy his time. The bg is very intresting with the skyscappers and the old harbour. I will agree with your note.
Have a nice weekend,

This looks like an illustration to the old song Slow boat to China. It's a brilliant observation. The combination of the extremely relaxed-looking man and the high rise buildings in the background is slightly absurd. Very well handled.

I like this very cool image,even without the background buildings it would have been beautiful!
Easy...that's the word!

I love the originality and the offbeat side of this picture : the man sitting totally relaxed in a pink rubber ring for chidren, letting himself be rocked by the tiny rippling wavelets, with the ugly modern buildings as a unique landscape. But sometimes you have to make compromises with your environment if you want to feel at ease. Very good composition.
Have a nice weekend.

He just needs a plastic cup of baijiu to complete the working day (by the way, how did he light his cigarette?!?)
Cheers for a relaxing weekend.

A terrific shot, making a superb contrast between the relaxing individual in the foreground in his humble vessel and the tall, corporate style buildings in the background. You wouldn't want any more water between the two, though. A good crop, and strong DOF.

hahahaha now that's the life! This shot just makes me smile. What more could a fellow ask for in life: he's got his ciggies, his floatie thing...maybe just missing a nice cold beer. The depth of field and colours are extraordinary here. The definition is something I wish I could get in my photos. I like how you've used the vertical frame here to give context to where the guy's floating and just how funny it is.

Well seen and done!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, black & white & grey borders, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
