Summer Palace in Beijing. I took this shot while visiting this beautiful city in 2009. The palace is located in large area of the city, composed by a big lake, several interesting gardens and a big palace surronded by traditional chinese buldings. It is the largest and best preserved royal park of Beijing.
The construction of the Summer Palace started in 1750 as a luxurious royal garden for royal families to rest and entertain. It later became the main residence of royal members in the end of the Qing Dynasty.

hi my friend
The Summer Palace is a wonderful landscape, very Zybaaz. Rivers and trees that surround it. To be a nice added. If you were a little more contrast would be very attractive.

Good view of the Palace with water in the FG giving depth. Weather in Beijing is not always favorable, quite OK here. Reasonable sharpness too

Grazie per la condivisione di questa magnifica immagine dalla Cina, una scena composta benissimo, con una parte di lago in basso ed una costruzione tipica che domina la scena.
Davvero bravo, e complimenti per la buona qualità.
Un caro abbraccio

You're capturing well this Summer Palace by a good composition, so it's interesting and impressive to see architectures with typical chinese style. It's interesting red wall and orange roof. And, it keeps good atmosphere by surroundings of rich greenery.

Wow, like a postcard from the Summer Palace. The scenery really has that essence of the past, it's like travelling through time into history. I can almost imagine walking on the long canopy and expect the King, Queen, and conqubines to walk down at any morment.
Beautiful composition, good colors, very rich and natural.

A typical architecture from China. I like the way the palace is surrounded by green vegetation making a nice color contrast. Fantastic architecture and colors. I see lots of colored boats taking people back and forth from this palace.

The trees are framing well the palace. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Summer Palace. The light is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

Nice picture of the majestic building across the water body. The water creates a nice FG. The colours are nice in strong light!

the presentation of the summer palace is wonderfully composed and framed, making the most of the light and capturing superbly the atmosphere of this magnificent place. The view is very clear and invites us to marvel at the architecture and the beauty of the natural environment. Colours are great. It surely is a mysterious and very fascinating palace, a wholly different world. A lovely picture, well done and thank you!
