Good morning Federico
I was surprised as i panned down the photo, to see even more subjects with the skyscrapers in the background. I was expecting to only see the temple.
Very well composed cityscape, a little bit of everything, a temple, gardens, skyscrapers and appartments.

Una bella paanoramica su questa cittā dai contrasti tra antico e moderno. Mi piace la luce calda e i colori morbidi, e naturalmente la pagoda col suo giardino č un soggetto molto fotogenico. Un bel documento per TE.
