A modern looking bridge, to a mini Dubai resort in the bg on Phoenix Island, with some old fg fishing boats for contrast. Taken at the eastern end of Sanya Beach. From Wikipedia:
"Phoenix Island (simplified Chinese: 凤凰岛; traditional Chinese: 鳳凰島; pinyin: Fènghuáng Dǎo), dubbed the Oriental Dubai, is an artificial archipelago forming an island resort currently under construction in Sanya, Hainan Province, China.
The island is located in Sanya Bay, and is 1,250 metres (4,100 ft) long by 350 metres (1,150 ft) wide and covers a total area of 393,825 square metres (4,239,100 sq ft). It is connected the shore by a 395-meter bridge.
Designed by Beijing architectural firm MAD Studio, who won the contract in 2007, total investment in the project exceeds 3 billion RMB (approximately $464 million). It is due for completion in 2014.
Prices of luxury residential units on Phoenix Island range from 50,000 RMB to 100,000 RMB per square metre, (approximately $7,700 to $15,400 USD), comparable to high-end properties in Beijing and Shanghai."

fascinating mixture of elements here in this wonderful composition. Love the old and new contrasts and the sweep of the bridge and coloured flags are so appealing. Nicely constructed and beautifully sharp image. You certainly give us some delightful insights into modern Chinese life.
Have a great weekend - Brian.

The length of the bridge is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the architecture of the bridge and of the buildings. The cloudy sky is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.

J'aime beaucoup les formes très modernes et aérodynamiques de ce pont. Les barques à l'avant plan et le beau bâtiment à l'arrière donnent beaucoup de profondeur à l'image.

Hello Chris, Another very impressive picture showing us a bit of the old and new. The bridge is a fantastic looking structure. Do they really have that much traffic to warrant such an amazing bridge? The boats remind me of those on the Mekong in Saigon, many years ago. However, the most interesting feature here is that building in the background. Would that be a business building or a housing effort? Good job. Regards, Roger

The bridge and the boats together make a wonderful composition. The architecture of the bridge is amazing . Hats off to the engineers who came up with such a nice design. The old fashioned boats are very charming creating a very nice contrast against the modern bridge. The building on the back also looks amazing. Excellent colors.
Cricri (119577) 2012-06-11 10:29
Excellente vue de ce pont moderne, certain que cela fait un contraste avec les anciens bateaux, c'est ce qui fait l'originalité de cette image et les deux me plaise bien,
