A welcome change to blue skies, after the dismal overcast conditions & rain of the fortnight before. The tourist crowds on the Great Wall of China, didn't bother me. This is China after all, the world's most populous country.

Thanks for sharing

Hi Chris, I am envious of this blue sky -our trip to the wall was a fantastic experience but alas the skies spoilt the shots. Not the memories though! Regards, Jean

The tourist ribbon is always the same as it was when I went to this place. Stunning blue sky for China.

This is one of the best shots I have ever seen about the Great Wall. It is so clear and sharp that we do not get tired looking at. And the colours are also first class. Just looking at the white umbrella we can see how well you got the light under control. Very well done.

Hi Chris. Great Wall with a great POV. Excellent. Very nicely composed. Never seen earlier. The winding wall under the blue sky and the greens on the sides with walkers going up -- gives a good treat to the eyes. Thanks for sharing in TE. Regards.

This is one of the best Great Wall photos I have seen in a while. The blue sky, the green foliage flanking the Wall, and the inclusion of people - they are all appealing. Best regards, Danilo

Outstanding shot of the great wall. Your composition is great using the wall itself to lead the eye through the photo. The people with umbrellas add a lot to the shot. The lighting and colors are outstanding with an excellent sky! The photo is clear and sharp through out!

Superb perspective of this famous place, Chris. The blue sky sure contributes to make this image appealing, but that's not all. Love the textures, the colors, the way the wall does a kind of knot effect on top and even the people add a nice busy atmosphere. Great shot.
have a nice weekend,

This wall must be very impressive. A very good framing in against diving. Pretty colors and a good light
Have a good week end

A very nice view from this so famous place. The point of view gives a nice perspective ans shows you a part of the way you have to walk ;) Umbrellas are already usefull to protect from the sun now after rainy days. Very beautiful view indeed with great saturated colours. Very well done !
stego (24132) 2007-12-01 12:21
Gorgeous POV, light, colours and sharpness. The tourists also don't bother me, well at contrary, it's nice to see them.
pablominto (53746) 2007-12-02 1:36
Rich attractive colours, and the point of view gives a great feeling of depth!
The winding wall is a great subject, and you make the most of it here in this well balanced composition...
Sharp fine details on this beautiful sunny day!

Excellent POv, which makes me think of the Russian mountains :) over this famous place with its green environment. There is a good sense of depth, nice colors and great choice of vertical framing.
andante (7092) 2007-12-02 14:54
Hi Chris, very sharp image of the Wall you are presenting today. The colors are postcard quality. The vertical format helps adding a sense of scale about the grandiosity of the monument.

Nice panorama of the Great Wall, Chris, light is good and I like the curve of the wall on top... also the bright colours work well together...

An excellent opportunity to see how the Great Wall looks at Badaling we were taken to Sumotai ( Or something which sounds similar ) The wall takes us to the top of the hill and the inclusion of colorful pedestrians is just perfect - Friendly regards - Izzet

Very well historical built, wonderfull contrast and colors, well done.

Brilliant polarised blue sky, superb sharpness & a crisp shot. Like how with the perspective & the stairs our eyes move up right upto the top. Graphism of the stairs is also wonderful. Excellent, and perhaps one of the best shots Iíve seen of the Great wall in this site!
