[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Yong River Bridge provides access from the eastern part of Ningbo to the Lao Waitan waterfront with its western-friendly shops and restaurants. The Yong river, only a few miles long, begins immediately upstream (left) at the confluence of the Fenghua and Yuyao rivers, and proceeds several miles to its mouth in Hangzhou Bay, which experiences one of the largest tidal variations in the world. Thus the Yong River at low tide is bordered by extensive mud flats as seen in the FG of this photo.

Though often foggy, in this case the haze in the air is smoke from the hours-long citywide fireworks fusillades marking the end of the Chinese New Year celebrations for 2008.

Interesting explanation. I was wondering what the foreground consisted of.
Great color and sharpness. You achieve terrific results Don. I wonder what type of post-processing is involved with the images you post here.

Kind regards,

Hey Don!
Great night shot, good tight crop, lighting and certainly a great capture of the mix of wonderful vibrant night colours. I love the hazy, blurriness that I'm assuming came from the lights of the bridge. It gives it a very mysterious feel!
