Another view of the large, Humble Administrator's Garden, in central Suzhou, completed in the 16th century. A boat is visible in the bg. From Wikipedia:
"It took 16 years until 1526 CE to complete... Today's garden is only very loosely related to its earliest version, but maintains its late Qing appearance, with numerous pavilions and bridges set among a maze of connected pools and islands. It consists of three major parts set about a large lake: the central part (Zhuozheng Yuan), the eastern part (once called Guitianyuanju, Dwelling Upon Return to the Countryside), and a western part (the Supplementary Garden). The house lies in the south of the garden. In total, the garden contains 48 different buildings with 101 tablets, 40 stelae, 21 precious old trees, and over 700 Suzhou-style penjing/penzai."

On continue notre visite de ces très beaux jardins chinois. Un bel endroit ou les foules de la ville sont absentes pour laisser un bel endroit pour le calme et la sérénité.

Another beautiful pov of this park
I like the green vegetation here
Fine colors and excellent sharpness
I don't use photoshop to arrange my pictures that's why I can't make some corrections you advise me.
Thanks for your comments, I can see you've travelled in so many countries, I am very impressed.

The trees are ceating a natural frame to the canal. The length of the canal is giving depth to the scene. The reflections on the water are assets bto the composition. Have a nice day.

Hello Chris - You have a fine vertical composition here. The elements of rock, water and green plantings encapsulate an oriental feel very well. The up-tilted eaves and small wooden boat add to the atmosphere. A fine and lovely image. Warm regards rosemary

fascinating the view of the Humble Administrator's garden, with the well chosen vertical format to adds depth as allow us to sea and admire a lot of interesting elements of it.
I like the light and the colour management as the beauty of the tranquility of the place.
