What I thought was another covered bridge in the bg, is only an unmarked Chinese style building, but it still has nice reflections. At left is the Shunheyuan Hotel and a moored boat. I tried google maps & panoramia but the photos pinned there are in the wrong locations. This is a short walk from the main train station, and taken from the main road bridge on Gong Yun Lu (Street), leading into the cbd & looking north.

stunning night shot, such vibrant electric colours that just jump off the screen at you. Very accomplished and irresistable. Love the colours and the lines in water are quite special. Excellent!
Enjoy your Sunday - all the best Brian.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The distance between the boat and the station is giving depth to the scene. The ppoint of view is showing the details and colors of the lighted station. Using a slow shutter speed and of probably of a support have special effect on the colors. Well done, have a nice day.

What a beautifully lit scene. Slight rippling on the water multiplies the effect of the colourful lights. Well framed and exposed peaceful view.

Your night photographs of China paint a picture of perpetual light and vivid colours, like we have in Blackpool for just one season! It is beautiful! I like how your composition uses the l/h guide into the shot, before turning at a right angle to really wow us with that full-on light fantasy! Excellent!
My warm regards,

Wonderful reflected night scene. I like the colors and the atmosphere. Well taken!
macjake (45588) 2012-05-06 15:28
When I see a photo such as this one in the small thumbnail gallery, its unmistakingly yours!
it works so well because of the dark blacks that surround the scene.
vibrant and eye striking, its obvious why this one works visually.

What can I say about this photo, what you have captured is the mood of this place and not the landscape. I can only imagin standing here and taking it all in. Love how the reflection in the water really enhances the romantic oriental atmosphere.
Excellent quality photo and good composition.

Hi Chris, Not covered bridge this time? What a pity :). Wonderful night shot of this Chinese building. Nice symmetrical composition, broken by a blue object, fabulous colours and reflections. Wuxi is a photographer's paradise.

Another beautiful and lovely night picture!
The colorful lit details of those buildings and their reflections look so attractive and you photographed them so well! I really enjoyed them all!
TFS - congrats,

The symmetry of the image & the reflections in the canal water has been captured well. Quite a palette of colours you showed here, including the streaks of blue in the FG. Tack sharp despite the long exposure...well done!
ourania (18738) 2012-05-12 8:14
a fascinating night shot, full of vibrant lights and colours challenging the calmness of the place. It's amazing how you've retained such good clarity shooting against all these glowing lights. The capture of very clear details here and there is extraordinary. The smooth extended reflections are lovely and unusual. The lustrous texture of the water turns them into a captivating luminous abstract painting. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,
