Another shot of West Wuzhen canal town, in Zhejiang Province. I like the graphism of the dark suited Chinese photographer against the white washed wall in the bg and the passing boat, which produced added interest too.
At top left are some colorful Chinese paper lanterns which I may upload later. This water canal town is very popular with domestic Chinese tourists but hardly known about by foreign tourists.

The length of the bridge is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colours of the architecture of the bridge. The presence of the people is shoeing a daily activity scene. The light has a good effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

La barque passe juste au bon moment dans l'image.Le cadrage est superbe avec ce très beau pont en diagonale. Le paysage est typiquement chinois et il est très bien rendu.

Good point of view on the bridge pleasantly illuminated in the warm sunshine. The silhouetted photographer and the passing boat complement the composition nicely. Good rendering of the tones and textures in the structure of the bridge.

What an interesting photo. The light is soft and beautiful and the colour of the murky water blends with the brown tones of the bridge and buildings. A very nicely balanced image. Gorgeous textures and detail.
Kind Regards, Ann

I had a very different impression of the scale of this image before looking more closely and spotting the people. Your composition is excellent making the most of the architecture, the light and the shadows, The boat passing under the bridge is a very attractive and well used element too. I love the perspectives, the sense of depth and the superb clarity on either side of the bridge. The light brings out some delicious and harmonious colours, the shadows are atmospheric. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

This is indeed a very pretty corner. Very neat composition. I can't get over the color of the canal water.

Jolie mise en image de ce pont très original. La barque bien placée complète bien la composition.

The light and the colours are really soft. It is the first time I have felt, what you are often quoting, that there is a sort of haze pollution.
A very well composed shot, with good links between f/g and b/g, nice use of opposing diagonals and some very interesting textural details.
have a good Sunday,

Another lovely scene Chris and you have captured it at a perfect moment with the small boat gliding under the bridge adding a calm and slow-paced feel to the shot. I love all the small Chinese details; the hanging lamps on the bridge itself are lovely. Evocative work. have a lovely Sunday Rosemary

Good morning Chris,
You captured that picture at the right time when people walk on the bridge and the small boat were just under it
Excellent synchronisation, an autenthic architecture
Superb colorsa and sharpness
Have a nice day

I always enjoy seeing what you have in store for us from China - as i'm not sure if China is a country I'll ever visit....we'll see.
When i think of China, i think of over population and crowds, but here theres a true sense and feeling of calmness and contemplation - a place where you can take your time and enjoy.
love the cultural boat and interesting bridge.
enjoy your weekend

Nice that in Wuzhen the old Chinese architecture is still preserved. Strange this stone bridge, somehow graceless. The other brige behind look much much better.

Charming scene along the canal. Everything looks amazing, a true return to the old times.
Have a fine new week.

Charmant petit pont avec la présence de la barque, la couleur spéciale du canal, un petit air de Venise tout a fait sympathique et très jolie
