A yellow and red teahouse flag, against a rare blue sky in the backstreets of Tongli. I've played with levels saturation and autocontrast. If you need time out from walking along photographing this amazing canal town, then one of these teahouses makes a good stop.

You played well with levels and autocontrast, nice photo. creative shot with the tilt, lovely flag and lanterns and typical Chinese roof. Yes, I would like to stop in such teahouse. But for a moment I am travel saturated.

I was on the Chinese tea ceremony twice. Good crop, fine composition as a result of so clever PoV. The flag works for this composition, this is the most attractive spot here. TFS!

The pp work is very successful and nicely complements the composition. I like the point of view and saturated tones.

iconic Chinese elements here, that seem to now be seen all over the world especially in the little "China Towns" that are in most big cities. Seeing them in their original setting makes this all the more compelling and fascinating. Love the light in this shot it is mellow and caresses the lanterns so beautifully. Excellent imagery!
Have a splendid weekend - Brian.

The flag and different balls make these picture nice.
You took this image out of a low position, this gives a nice view.
Sharpness and clarity be superb, also colours and perspective.
Nice presentation, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

The branches are helping to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the flag, of the lanterns and the a section of the tea house. The light is giving a good contrast to the colours. Have a nice day.

J'aime bien cette contre plongée qui utilise parfaitement le ciel comme arrière plan.Les couleurs sont vibrantes d'énergie et le sujet très chinois.

Very nice and colorful photo, I think this flag has a color of tea :)), well seen, well done

an effective close and upward point of view and a well considered tight framing have given a very interesting composition of architectural and decorative details. The light has been managed very aptly and the colour combination is really attractive. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Très bon cadrage de ce drapeau-enseigne aux couleurs attractives, les lanternes complétant bien la composition.

Very nice facade view, unfortunately I cannot read what is written on the club flag of that tea house but I'd like to learn!
Clear shot with fine colors
Have a good saturday

Merhaba dear Chris
An interesting angle, very artistic, accentuating the nice lines and angles of the architecture. I like the rich colours and the graphism of the lanterns, windows and tiles.
Thanks for sharing, have a great day
PS: Hope you're okay over there, I;ve been watching the goings-on on the news.
