A lighthouse in Xiamen Harbour, between the city & Gulangyu Island, from where this was taken, near the Koxinga statue, a local historic war hero. I liked the simplicity of this composition. Usually, all things Chinese are either very complicated or very ornate, & sometimes both.

Strange little thing... An interesting scene though, and the photo is very well composed.

Rather surreal look to this. AYour images are all too undercontrasted - apply curves!

Very beautiful photograph Chris,an interesting scene though, the tower with the stair in the middle and the lighting are very nice.

Chris, you did spendidly to bring out the colours in this picture, I think it was a lousy day light wise - ref the sky colour, but the detail colours renders this nearly into Japanese art. I like it.

A genuinely interesting find, Chris, and the view has a slightly surreal feel to it (particularly the way in which the stairs leading up to the lighthouse emerge out of the water). Good composition and colors (on what looks like a bit of a drab day), and the boat in the background appears to be leaning towards the rock, obviously all the passengers wanted to make sure they got a good view :o)

This is really fascinating, Chris. I've never seen a lighthouse like this before! Great eye you have!

This is a beautiful lighthouse, so very classic. The composition with the rocks and the ferry is wonderful. Very well spotted and captured, Chris.

Very special sight and you got it just the right moment - glad to have the boat as well gives a true feeling of the dimensions - Simple but yet fine image - thanks Chris.

Excellent composition. The lighthouse and the boat are very well placed in the frame. Good to find the key of a beuatiful picture in its simplicity. Well done Chris!

i was speechless, perfect, nothing else to say

Surprising Photograph !
With such a lighthouse, tides may not be high and strong. This scenery seems proceding from a cartoon.
It looks surreal.

Hi Chris, Well composed with the boat well place sailing past this unusual lighthouse. Looks like it could be dangerous at the wrong tide here. Good POV enabling a lot of the details to be seen. TFS. Murray.
