Colourful Lanterns inside a shop along Shantang Jie in western Suzhou. It's not all that far from the main train station. I liked the unusual concertinaed patterns which are somewhat like an accordion.
The lanterns & lights at Shantang Jie outside along the canals & alleys, are much better than some other spots in Suzhou.

I like the way that you frame the lanterns. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the SAuzhgou lanterns. The surrounding light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

what makes it so effective are the contrasting black areas too.
