Suzhou, a city about 80km west of Shanghi, is sometimes refered to as "The Venice Of The East". It is a city of canals and waterways, as well as some of the most interesting gardens. The day that we visited was an overcast one, which made proper exposure quite difficult.

Beautiful photo. Lovely colour to the image, and you've captured the architecture very well. It looks like a really beautiful area. TFS.

Hi Cliff, nice composition, i like that red flowers, they give it "something". I've always admired this traditional Asian architecture.

Very good picture of that Chinese garden. Good colors and composition. The horizon tends to lean on the right a bit though. Thanks,

Suzhou is one of my favorite cities in China
Even in the winter it is still a beautiful place.
This is an nice shot of one of the gardens.
I like your capture of the buildings but i feel there could have been a better POV fo this one. Perhaps a spot where you could have gotten a reflection?
any way, it is a nice picture none the less.
