Photographer's Note

I've added a fake blue sky, to mask the heavy air pollution haze, & boosted saturation slightly, excluding the red flags. From Wikipedia:

"Tiananmen Square (simplified Chinese: 天安门广场; traditional Chinese: 天安門廣場; pinyin: Tiān'ānmén Guǎngchǎng) is the large plaza near the center of Beijing, China, named after the Tiananmen (literally, Gate of Heavenly Peace) which sits to its north, separating it from the Forbidden City. It has great cultural significance as a symbol because it was the site of several key events in Chinese history".

Here's another view on TL, showing the pollution.
