Another shot from the very underrated West Wuzhen canal area. Most western tourists go to Suzhou or Zhouzhouang, but this spot is very popular with domestic Chinese tourists, especially after it was advertised locally in China, by a much loved Chinese actress, promoting the virtues of this scenic town.
There are 2 canal towns in Wuzhen, 'west' & 'east', separated by the main town of Wuzhen, which has only roads & a river. There is a trash rack where the canals enter the river, to stop garbage & water hyacinth floating into the canals of these picturesque water towns.

Must be interesting to be cruising on this wooden boat around this place. Great capture and the exposed details are wonderful in the frame.
Thanks and kind regards.

What a charming wooden boat. We don't see such boats in US. The whole thing is very scenic with the arched bridge connecting the two sides of the canal. I like the soft colors, architecture and management of light.

Hello Again Chris - This one doesn't have quite the same impact as the previous but I like the wooden boat in the FG and view beneath the lovely little bridge. A fabulous location for photography. Warm regards Rosemary

Dobar tekst ...
Lep pogled na camac, kanal, most i interesantnu arhitekturu, dobra kompozicija.
Dobra ostrina snimka, kontrast i prikaz, lepe boje.
Lepo mesto, steta sto kanal smrdi ...
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje.

The distance between the boats is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the bridge and of the houses. the morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Une autre remarquable photo de cette superbe ville chinoise. La composition est très bonne avec ce bateau idéalement placé laissant parfaitement apparaître les détails architecturaux des lieux.

Good Morning Chris,
No-one should underestimate the recommendation of a celebrity!
I like this. We have close details of the everyday life of the occupants and the most interesting details of the architecture.
The clarity is lovely; it is well composed with regard to thirds whilst the navigator is strongly positioned in the frame.
This is the sort of shot that would be posted in National Geographic.
Have a lovely w/e,

assurément un endroit calme, cette Venise de l'Est.
J'aime le traditionnel qui comme ici, parvient à harmoniser les différents styles architecturaux, la pierre et le bois, l'air, la pierre et l'eau.
Bien jolies couleurs.
yquem46 (38532) 2012-03-16 10:56
China, definitely a fascinating country and even more when tackled off the beaten tracks. And you're certainly one of the best specialists here on TE
Excellent compo here, a serene moody image
Enjoy your WE
