Good morning ( from France) Chris,
I like the composition, and am interested by this place nicely shown here, the colors are excellent and the opposition from the two sides of the water with the pier and the building attractive.
I have spend five minutes to try to find "Pizza Hutt" inside but could'not, sorry :)))

Une photo étonnante : la Chine s'éveille, ce n'est pas une phrase anodine en voyant cette très belle prise de vue.
C'est toujours un plaisir que de découvrir des endroits que l'on connaît mal.
Très bien fait.

Nice composition and positioning of the two cylinderical towers. I like the effect of the lighting in the centre and the boat sailing in is a nice guide for the eye flow. Great shot!! All the best.

Terrifuing to see all those buildings tight together in unatural life in a city.
A good overview well brought together on differant plans with this dominating cool blue colortone.

It seems not only Shangai is getting a skyline !
I like the contrast between the foreground construction and the rising modern buildings behind, the tiny boat is also welcome to give a scale.
Have a nice sunday,

Very well composed with good use of the space.
Interesting to see this modern skylines in China,and Pizza Hut is also already there!
The crossing Ferry is a nice detail.

Interesting cityscape. These modern Chinese cities all seem to have such a supermodern look, all the more apparant becaase of the paraphanalia of the old which often surrounds them. Good PoV for this one.

Chris, it's great landscape, looks like the Emerald City. You can really tell you have a circular polarizer on there, as the blues are forming a circle around the edges. Not a bad thing, though. Good sharpness and DOF.

Interesting wide-angle shot from Xiamen, Chris - a good presentation of the clearly emerging skyline, and good inclusion of foreground elements such as the pier and the boats for the framing. Well done.

The large buildings are a total other type of in Europe, we build more rectangle. I like absolutely this picture, these are always usual exemplarily.
weswang (18223) 2005-05-29 13:53
Hi Chris, A very well composed picture with a nice monotone blue color as the main tone. The half circles under the pathway between the two tall buildings are beautiful viewing from this angle. An interesting note to go with this modern skyline. A very nice and sharp image. Well done.

Encore un très beau document. La Chine s'éveille avec la pizza !
Le cadrage est très bon, la composition également et les couleurs très belles. C'est très bon mon Cher ;-))
quantabeh (5205) 2005-05-29 20:35
This is a very good view of the city. I like the overall tonality and colors here. You have tried to show many parts here, which is good, but I was thinking about a panoramic view which includes the whole city and the mountains on the left, just an idea.
anyways, good work!

Excellent composition Chris - I like the way the buildings in the foreground give depth. Terrific colour and sharpness too.
cessy (13647) 2005-05-30 3:33
wow Chris, wonderful shot of the city
China really becoming more and more developped, the surrounding water, boat, mountain on the background really make this photo very enjoyable to see
jrj (34841) 2005-05-30 5:26
Impressive shot Chris. Good capture and mix of styles in architechture, the new buildings almost looking like some toy models in this setting. Interesting and as said impressive setting.

Great contrast in this shot - some buildings look quite old and other almost unreal modern - Thanks Chris for this view of the "new" china.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2005-06-02 5:29

Le bleuté est dominant, dans le ciel, les reflets dans l'eau et le buildings. Ce bleu qui invoque le froid.
Thanks for sharing.

Que interessante enquadramento com os dois planos se harmonizando. Great work.

Hi Chris, This is the best photograph óf Xiamen seen to date. The tall modern building represent the new expansions going on in China for the past decade now. Good clarity and colours. TFS. Murray.

This one was featured when you open TE - very impressive - what a huge modern city - Pizza Hut must be the one with the best view in the world then.
