It was raining with thunder & lightning over on the right when I took this, just after sunset. Taken from the old Qing Ming Bridge in Wuxi, a city of 4.5 million people west of Suzhou.

Splendid atmosphere along that riverside. I like the contrast between the cold mysterious atmosphere and the warm lights. Great catch!

a strange mixture of color and light ... big contrasts
a very pleasant atmosphere between mystery, solitude, quiet and peace.

A fine perspective along these warmly lit buildings. The warm/cool tonal contrasts help bring a particular mood to the image. Lovely reflections to be seen in the slightly moving waters.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the houses. The low clouds are giving a mysterious mood to the scene. Have a good day.

Hi Chris,great point of view and great moment to take this nice perspective,i like a lot this raining atmosphere and this brilliant colors of the lights.Very well done,have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Despite the bad weather conditions, you did a fine job and captured a good image, showing the residential district of the town nicely enlightened by the yellow and red lamps and their lovely reflection into the river. People were probably still at work as there aren't any berthed boats yet in front of the houses. These red lights would have another meaning in Amsterdam, but here, they just give a nice light to the boats sailing home. Well done.

nice the view of Wuxi Canal during the blue hour.I like the creative perspective,the reflections on the water with the foggy atmosphere that covers the backdrop.
divail (7233) 2011-11-07 19:09
Cette composition est vraiment très belle. Belle diagonale bien éclairée sur ce superbe canal. Cet endroit semble avoir été créé pour les photographes!

No matter rainy or sunny this old city is just always rich with water, good bird view shot to frame a row of old house by the canal, nice reflection of light from lamps and lanterns, thanks for sharing an impressive view at early night.
emka (58194) 2011-11-07 22:21
This is a beautiful picture. I like the bluish tone with the light of red lanterns and their reflections in canal. Wonderful diagonal composition.
gildasjan (38228) 2011-11-08 1:52
Elle est superbe cette perspective avec toutes ces lumières chaudes et leurs reflets.Une très bonne complémentarité de couleurs avec l'ambiance bleue de cette image.
delpeoples (45006) 2011-11-08 3:20
A very atmospheric photo, bad weather (at least in my opinion) will usually give dramatic results where sunny skies don't always. Great light play and I really like the soft blue tones and how they contrast with the stronger warmer tones. Nice work.
Have a lovely evening and TFS
npecanhuk (53913) 2011-11-08 3:57
