I have forgotten the name of this bridge, but it's near Nanchansi Temple in southern Wuxi. I will come back & edit this note when I find out. This is a re-shoot of the same bridge I took several months ago, only with the added bonus of a blue hour, & with more shadow detail in the steps.
EDIT: this is the Precious Tower Bridge, which I previously uploaded in November last year:
The tip of the Nanchansi Temple spire can be seen at left.

Another nice blue hour shot of this bridge with beautiful yellow light illuminating the whole area. Nice color contrast between the pale blue sky and the yellow light. The details are captured very sharply showing some of the architecture of the temple.

Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Namaste Chris ~
It's interesting , the well managed light in this concept.
If those branches in the foreground right too weren't there, would have been more delight. But it's there , so cannot be avoided in this composition.
Have a great day.

you did fantastic shot in blue hour. Wonderfully executed this image. The beautiful light all over this city makes fantastic effect like in the fairy tale. Perfectly well done.
Like it a lot.
All the best,

The added bonus of the blue hour is really impressive with the golden light showering it's facade. The framing with the stairs and the arch add dynamics in this fabulous shot.
Thanks and have a nice day.

it is not important how the bridge is called. Precious Tower Bridge - so there is precious tower nearby. nice blue hour shot, with the bridge beautifully lit. After some months in Wuxi you must feel there like at home.

Hi Chris, it might be safer to call this one Golden Hour.. superb rich colours well lit up in Chinese style.. there is a nice balance between natural and man made light TFS Ricx

La composition et les couleurs de cette heure bleue sont spectaculaires. Dommage que l'ensemble manque un petit peu de netteté!

Belle heure bleue teintée de jaunes et d'oranges, des jeux de couleurs, Chris, qui donnent beaucoup de charme à cet endroit bien calme.
Une parfaite capture des lumières.

Superbe cadrage du pont, le mariage sensationnelle du bleu et du jaune une image bien réaliser et attrayante

你好 Chris :)
There are so many bridges in Wuxi! i do remember this one, but, of course, from another pov! The golden lights made for a good contrast with the blue sky and framing is working well.

Very attractive shot my friend, the blue hour color and the warm light of the lighting makes a nice contrast. Good management of light.
Have a good WE!

amazing bridge here. Good shot and presentation. I like the colours and lights. Photo is well done.
Have a nice day.
ourania (35890) 2012-03-09 11:51
this is an excellent composition from a great point of view. The characteristic features of the architecture are brillianty outlined by the warm yellow light which is rendered with amazing sharpness. The management of the strong artificial lighting is superb. There's great clarity on the non-lit areas and a fascinating atmosphere created by the light, its glow and the exquisite natural elegance of the blue hour. Well done!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,
