A nocturnal view of the main boulevard running between Sanya, Dadonghai & Yalong Bay, taken from the 12th floor of my hotel. The beach is 300 metres to the right.
"Da Dong Hai" literally means "Big East Sea"
It's a much cleaner beach than Sanya, imho, and cheaper too. It's common to see Cyrillic lettering here too, as many Russian holiday makers flock here to escape the snow & ice of Irkutsk, Siberia & Vladivostok / Primorskiy.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Très belle prise de vue nocturne, où les lumières de la ville s'amusent à créer des guirlandes décoratives.
Félicitations pour cette réussite.
Très bonne journée.

Modernism is highlighted by the bright edges of roofs and balconies. The view is spectacular and descriptive. The exposure of the photo is excellent. Very good sharpness. Bravo.
Have a nice day

La rue offre une très belle diagonale dans l'image et les couleurs de la nuit sont parfaitement rendues grâce à une technique irréprochable. Un bien bel endroit.

The length of the street is giving depth to the composition. Using an ISO of 1600, a slow shutter speed and probably a support isshowing the details and colors of the lighted buildongs. It also has a special effect on the colors. Have a nice day.

Your Title to this image sounds as if it is a moth that you are naming, but then again, moths do fly at night do they not?
Excellent photo here, great colors...

Helllo Chris, Another blue hour shot that was successful. I like the fact that at 1/15 of a sec, you have virtually no blur with the traffic. The lighting is spectacular too. Fine presentation. Regards, Roger
Wonder what makes that amazing blue hue to the lights in the larger buildings?
gunbud (34066) 2012-06-10 18:00
Lovely blue hour capture of this modern Chinese city.
The golden and blue tones combine beautifully on this busy night.

Les 1600 ISO n'ont pas fait perdre trop de qualité à cette bonne photo nocturne très bien cadrée et aux couleurs intéressantes.

Hi Chris, This time without any bridge. You had wionderful view from your hotel. You could be lazy - just stand in the window and shoot. fantastic colourful lights, excellent sharpness. Spectacular view.
Haha, I remember these Chinese words - Da big, like Dà fó - Big Budda, Dong - East, like in Pudong(Shanghai) East of the river Pu. And Hai is in Shanghai. Have you learned some Chinese already?
danos (85085) 2012-06-11 0:27
nice the nocturne view of this part of the city with the decorated with neon buildings to looks so beautiful and unique.
I like the light and the colour management as the excellent chosen POV.

Ah Chris - taking in the Chinese resort areas! A good colourful night photo
delpeoples (52897) 2012-06-11 1:30
I love your nocturnal shots, and although I prefer your previous one, this one is also very good. There's not a hint of noise and the image is quite sharp and well-exposed. I like the warmer gold light on the left too, it contrasts beautifully with the black tones.

Seems you had a great view from your hotel! A good night shot, with good pov and exposure! And really Chinese, with so many colourful lights! Are the lights to the New Year already?
macjake (54830) 2012-06-15 2:23
I remember this one from a few days ago, just havnt had the time to critique it yet! but I"m here now.
I'm always attracted to blue lights, architecture and city blocks/intersections...
the neon lighting reminds me of Casinos. the black areas really contrast the scene perfectly don't they.
lots to keep the eye busy and the mind interested.
lovely view at night from the hotel room.
Cricri (104293) 2012-06-15 11:01
