I just love it, that kind of "peaceful, easy feeling" to (one of?) the most hectic city(cities?) on Earth... My ex-girlfriend lives half the time here, and I wanted to order a print for her birthday... Is that remotely possible?

ni hao,

Wonderful Capture, the vivid colors of the boats, water and the interest of the building create a masterful capture.


LOVE IT!

Beautiful. I've read about the strong Feng Shui elements incorporated in the city planning, and an example was HSBC buying out the buildings in front of it and tearing them down just to be in sync- i.e the mountains in the back with the shore in front is supposed to be positive.

I couldn't figure out exactly what it'd look like but I posted the building in your photo and now I know. Thanks!

niteangel Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2007
:) Yeah, and it has more fengshui elements inside it. They have a giant fish tank at the top floor in order to create a balance between them and Bank of China, because the Bank of China tower is like a blade, which is not a nice symbol to be sitting next to HSBC. ;)

you might want to trim it a little in photoshop and make some contrast, because it looks quite flat due to the haze.

This is a great pic. I really like the contrast of the bright energetic colours in the foreground, as opposed to the metallic, almost lifeless colours of the city backdrop. It makes for a great study in culture.

And yeah, the new iMac is really good! :D I have dual-booted it with Vista but that Vista is so unstable and it crashes in my Mac! :( so I just go ahead with Mac to do nearly everything now...and yeah, it does make my table much more spacious! =P

How are you doing?
