Thats stunning - I like the colour the windows have become in particular.

Amazing color!

Carolyn, this is a gorgeous photo - the sky, the reflection, the unusual colors, the boats, your framing.

[The best times for visiting anywhere in China is Apr/May and Sep/Oct... and there are many stunning places to see (just like in the USA) - not only what you get in the news there. Part of that haze was there already 25 years ago when I first went, so it's not all just pollution. Come oooon over! :-) ]

Samson said...

Scenic Indeed, is this an HDR?

Julie said...

Yikes that is a garish colour coming from that building, but it certainly makes for an entrancing reflection. To some extent it reminds me of a stage setting on Broadway, say 'South Pacific'. Especially with all those palm trees, which I had to convince myself were really and not just mega-decals on the side of the building. Terrific composition ... sooo much to look at.

Greyscale Territory said...

So many colours in the cityscape and the watery reflections! And what a great panorama!

cat said...

WOW This is spectacular. I love the colors and it being a sunset makes those colors just awesome. Very well done my friend. :) Have a great weekend :)

JOE TODD said...

Is that Ernest Hemingway or Jack London in the distance? Great job Carolyn

Ann said...

The reflection of the green building is incredible. Is it some expensive apartment?

What I wanted to say about this photo is all said by the visitors! I have no other English words to describe how much I am impressed wih this photo. I am wondering if you retouched this with photoshop or not. If so, you already mastered retouchig techniques.

Lovely Picture...so inviting

Gaelyn said...

Gorgeous colors and reflections plus such contrast of the bustling city skyline and peaceful boats at dock.
