The view from Qing Ming Bridge, looking south to Bodu Bridge. There are so many bridges all over Wuxi. When I took this there was thunder & lightning about, over on the left, but I wasn't lucky enough to capture a bolt or 2. I've used the railing of the bridge as a tripod, & because it was on a 45 degree angle, had to wedge a torch in on the right, to get a level horizon.

Hi Chris,
Another fine nocturnal presentation with these colorful lights creating such a pleasant composition where you show your artistry.
A very sharp image with perfect light management and an agreeable POV where reflections are enhancing the composition.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

merveilleus eiamge quelles belle lumières quelle compo et iamge superbe avec ces reflets ce pont et l'étoile vert en fond une merveille fantastique.

bravo et amitié


Now this is more like it ;-) The water is very smooth from the longer shutter speed and starlights are appearing from the smaller aperture - notably the green light under the bridge.
Good luck getting the lightning next time!


I like this effective POV here which brings a kind charm in this nocturnal shot from this lovely location, dear Chris!

Great focus and nice sharpness with well management of exposure.
The lights are doing magic when seen in mirror-reflection too.

A well thought perspective!


Bonjour Chris,
Une série de photos nocturnes dont on ne se lasse...
Joli POV de cette ville de Wuxi, illuminée de façon artistique haute en couleurs, riche en détails, l'idéal pour un photographie...
C'est bien vu Chris, excellent et agréable, parfait...

Hi Chris, that bridge really s quite bright, I like the green stars and the way only the edge of the roof seems to be lit up. Fiona

Hi Chris ,Bonjour,
Another great nocturne composition with wanderful reflection on water,
A sharp and clear picture with beautiful decoration of light,
a very well done presentation and point of view,
Michel bon dimanche...

Hello Chris,there seem to be lots of opportunities, where you live, for night-time shots with water and lovely coloured lights.
Another interesting shot with bright reflections in the dark water.The green starlight is particularly good.And I like the varied textures with the roof and patterned windows.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Bonjour Chris

Again one of your beautiful picture at night.
I admire what you do with the Nikon D90. The colors and lights are beautiful and well managed.
Sharp photo and perfect Pov which lets us see the bridge in detail.
I love the reflections.
Bon dimanche.

I love these night shots, Chris...
GREAT colors from the lights and reflections, very well composed, excellent exposure with nice details even in the shadowy parts. You did a great job with the sharpness at such a long exposure time. It looks so very exotic. That is so cool! Many thanks and warmest regards,

This timed exposure is also awesome just like most of what you have posted. Lovely colors and good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hello Chris,
The first thing I noticed in this beautiful image is the flowing emition of light at the 1st floor of this building at left. A wonderful noctural image in exciting lights. Nicely chosen PoV as always. Well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.
