Blue hour at the junction of several canals near the Jolly100 sports centre. It's a local landmark of sorts because the signage is in English, rather than Chinese, which I (almost) cannot read. I liked the symmetrical reflections here.

Hi, Nice view in (pale) blue hour. Smooth water surface in canal is a good mirror, the picture has great symmetry. I see here big Chinese signs, not English. What does mean "almost"? Can you read some Chinese?
How are you in Erzurum? Are you safe there?
Have a nice Sunday

a pale blue hour shot this and I must say it looks wonderful. Full of soft lights and magnificent reflections. An almost dreamy atmosphere which makes this urban area look strangely magical. Well executed and presented.
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

Tu as bien saisi l'essence de l'heure bleue sur Wuxi. De plus, les reflets sont superbes dans ces eaux calmes comme un miroir. Une image bien pensée et bien réalisée.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the détails and colours of the architecture of the buildings. The light of the blue hour is giving soft colours to the scene. Have a nice day.

Beautiful blue hour shot taken with great composition and very good quality. Like the way you executed water reflections to create a mirror effect of the scene. Lovely post! Well done.

Un cadrage symétrique soigné qui donne toute sa place à ce superbe reflet.

Good Morning Chris,
This really is a 'Blue Hour'.
Because it is not very dark, there is a delightful softness about the colours which prevents those stark contrasts that you often get.
For me, the bridge makes a great contrast in shape and colours and really pulls in attention.
The reflections are delightful.
Have a lovely day,

Hello my dear friend,
yes, a blue hour present everywhere in the picture, even in the reflexions.
The symmetrical effect is perfect and the lights well balanced.

This one is excellent! Blue hours tend to yield beautiful photos and this one is no exception. I love the symmetry generated by the reflections. Superb!

I was in Wuxi many years ago. Don't remember much about it. this is really wonderful blue hour shot. The reflection doubles the beauty. China is changing so fast. Thise highrise are getting better and also visually more apealling than it use to be.
Excellent quality photo with good composition and love the soft pastel blue.

Time taken at evening's, not so datk - yet daylight already mild. reesult in a unique light-blue tone of pic., with great mirror effect on water.
Modern town-buildings, seems to rise from the old houses.
Fine shot indeed.
ourania (47206) 2013-06-14 14:39
this is a very lovely picture in which the elegant, symmetrical composition, the soft evening light and the mesmerising, deep pastel colours are equally attractive and important. You've managed both the sweetness of the natural light and the intensity of the artificial ones in a most apt way, retaining intact the tranquility of the hour and of the scenery. Depth and clarity are marvellous too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,
