[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A detail of the many Chinese cards hung in front of one of many Confucian Temples at Qufu. Basically they translate as best wishes to your family and a long and prosperous life. I liked the warm cold color contrasts and the graphism. Such a stark & welcome contrast to the grey white colours more common to large Chinese cities.

Hi Chris.

I too like this one, I like tha fact that you chose to crop this close, the colours are warming and the notion that the words mean of best wishes adds to the appeal.

Ciao Chris, lovely composition with fantastic colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Such a strong colors! And you did a wonderful job with red color, I always have problem with them they tend to bleed. Well done, tfs.

Now that is a "red hot" photo! Good capture, nice tight crop. By the way, are you still in China or have you moved to a different location?


Hello Chris, I can't recall seeing anything as bright as this before, on any channel!!
Congratulations on managing the colour so well.
Can you read Chinese at all?
Thanks for sharing, regards Jean.
