A photo taken near the village of XingPing, north of Yangshuo. Down in the valley you can see the Li river, one of the most popular destinations in China. Many cruises depart from down there, and you can see many boats in the river. The picture was taken on top pf a peak near the harbour of XingPing. The mountain offered very beautiful views, and was by the time i was there free of charge - a thing that's somewhat strange in tourist destinations in China, where they try to charge you for everything.
To get to XingPing just take a bus from Yangshuo, or i suppose you can also take some boat.
In this picture i've adjusted the colors and the brightness a bit.

good framing, maybe this tree on left side is a bit unnecesary in this form IMO, because it hides part of view. Rest is fine. Very intersting shape of hills and shadows of the moving clouds. Good job.

This landscape is astonishing. Boats look like small pieces of wood on the river. I think the sky could be better, but it's usual in China.

Fantastic landscape shot and good composition with the curvy river with the boats.The view at the strange mountans in the background is nice too.

I see no flaws, so what more can I say? Maybe that the tree on the left is very well there, specially because the mountain dehind it is "needed" by the whole image.
