Dyed cloth drying in the sun in Wuzhen, one of many attractive water canal towns in central coastal China. I liked the subtle warm cold color contrast here against the sort of blue sky (rare in China) & the yellow bamboo poles.

An almost abstract statue of cloths and bamboo. A well taken the view upwards. Good light and clarity managed.
Simple yet nice and efficient.

top marks for originality and creativity here. How many would just pass this by and not even think about taking this shot. It works on so many levels and has an abstract arty quality about it. A great POV and use of lines to make it both compelling and fascinating. Well done!

Good Morning Chris,
I had no idea what was depicted in the photograph, from the thumbnail, just that it looked like an interesting pattern! And it is!.
I like how you have captured it to make the cane lines follow opposing diagonals. The drying cloths give a whole new dimension. They remind me of those large kites!
A nice, sharp, capture.
The sunlight on the windows gives a colour link with the f/g canes.
Have a good day,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition.Elle a un petit côté aérien avec ces bandes de tissu sur les perches. La contre plongée utilise bien le ciel comme arrière plan.

Lots of cretivity to compose this capture, reminds me some movies turned by Zhang Yimou
This is a lesson of compposition with the canes in diagonal and contrast of the differents kinds of blue with the golden poles
Like also the windows and reflections at the back
Quite a chinese scene, tfs
