I discovered another park in Wuxi, just by looking at satellite images on internet. The park is not visible from the main roads & there is no mention of it in the main tourist blurbs. It has about 9 bridges too, although only a couple of them are exceptional. The horse-head architecture is clearly visible, & is a traditional way of stopping fires leaping from roof to roof. The buildings here are restaurants & shops mocked up to look ancient, but I much prefer these, to the highrise bg architecture. I liked the reflections here too.
I have cloned out some power-lines in the sky.

Good Morning Chris,
I have never heard of horse-head architecture before. How interesting!
There is a fine contrast between the architecture in the f/g and that in the b/g, I know which I prefer!
The reflections are captivating, making the most dominant part of your composition, which is sharp and colourful.
Have a lovely day,

China on his best, almost a western image.
The houses are lovely with a modern background through the skyscrapers.
You chose a very well angle with a lot depth and perspective.
Sharpness and clarity are perfect.
Excellent composition, nice done, TFS.
Bonnes fêtes de Pâques,

horse-head architecture....never heard of that before...thats totally new to me.
as for cloning out the wires, i've never been bothered by them, but i know alot of TE members get frustrated with them. I just think its part of the everyday life, wires are everywhere, we must learn how to live with them :)
an excellent time of day for this shot, the short stone wall is exceptionally sharp and the reflections are great too.
enjoy your day

The highrise buildings are framing well the restaurants. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the reataurants. The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Un beau cadrage qui nous montre l'original et les reflets dans son entièreté. J'aime bien l'architecture des maisons à l'avant plan, plus que l'arrière plan très moderne.

Your photo is very pretty, I like a lot the houses and buildings reflections. Nice sharpness and colors.

mélange de traditionnel à l'avant plan et de modernisme loin derrière, on retrouve ce phénomène visible dans beaucoup de villes partout dans le monde.
Très bonnes lumières et jeux de reflets tranquilles, semblant vouloir apaiser la vie telle qu'on l'imagine dans les buildings du BG.
Angshu (56758) 2012-04-12 2:18
The contrast between the building styles have come out well in this picture. The reflection of the buildings also has come out well. Pretty intrigues by the horse-head architecture...first time I've heard about it & seeing it
delpeoples (58576) 2012-04-14 17:21
Hi dear Chris
This image reminds me alot of the canal in Malacca. Even the architecture of the houses is similar. Lovely reflections and perspective. The strong colours work well.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely Sunday

mirosu (16273) 2012-04-19 4:09
Excellent image. Perfect water reflections, light, colors and overall composition.
ikeharel (72887) 2015-05-23 2:24
Good morning Chris,
Fabulous shining reflection, well saturated photo, and visibility as far as the eyes can see - not so common in China lately, so I read, those growing cities have enormous pollution.
Great photojob done.
Enjoy your weekend,
