Sunset over the Li River in Guilin. I spent most of my time in Yangshuo to the south but couldn't get a train ticket, (standing seats only for 25 hours +!) so flew back to Shanghai from Guilin instead. Prices in Yangshuo are MUCH cheaper than Guilin.

My neighbour today !
Very nice sunset capture from China.
The reflections and overall layout gives us the impression of a Chinese inkpainting.
TFS and best regards

very nice moment of light and colour...and a perfect sun situation, the play of slhouettes and the sunlight reflection is designing a very nice scene...

Congratulation you are success to capture a setting sun right on the peak in a cloud less evening, clear to show the unique geographical feature too, thanks for sharing a fascinating sunset view that full with poetic flavour.

what a beautifully expressive sunset, love the positioning of the sun. Your light management here is superb, not easy to get this just right but this is perfect. Lovely tranquil and warm tones. Stunning!
Warm regards and have a pleasant weekend - Brian.

Lovely capture with a perfect sun, geat composition, taken at the good time with this good position for the sun on the top of the hill.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The distance between the bay and the sun is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the mountains. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky and the water. Have a nice day.

Un beau moment capture avec le soleil au sommet de la colline, les reflets dans l'eau et la douceur du ciel, un instant paisible bien réaliser

So different from the blue hour and bridges but with that same magic on the water! You obviously waited patiently for the sun to hit the top of the distant hill and cast that golden glow across the water.
Warm, romantic and, as always, beautifully composed.
Have a lovely w/e,

Hi Chris, Yangshuo is better place than Guilin, as it is smaller and just in the middle of this fantastic scenery. A bit :) touristy but very nice. I like Guilin either. I prefer the trips with locals, so we took smaller boat for the Li River cruise but it was not good idea. We didn't go to Yangshuo by river - earlier they told us to change for a bus because of the low level of water. i don't know if it was the truth. we felt cheated. But even if not complete, the cruise was wonderful.

beautiful sunset here. Good shot. I like the orange sky and reflections of sun rays in water. Amazing hills. Photo is well done.
Have a nice WE.

this place is my favorite and most unforgettable destination from my trip in China.Great the sunset view with the sun to be surrounded from the characteristic Mts of the place,creating this spectacular and dreamily view.

I know that I have to come again in China to see Guilin and its fantastic landscape.You show it in the superb light of sunset, and I like this atmosphere ,as the reflection of the sun in the water.Superb!

Ahh nows that's a sunset. So beautiful. The image is luminous and I love the dominant golden tones. This is like a dream, what a pleasure to view at the end of a day.
