[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As often happens, the reflection of the sunset is far better exposed, than the sunset itself, so I've focussed more on the reflections here than the oe sky. This is Dongpo Park in Changzhou which is west of Wuzi & not often visited by foreigners, who tend to keep going to Nanjing, or, the other way, to Suzhou.

Hi Chris,
An awesome capture of this sunset shot with a difference. A superb red cast in the water indicating this phenomenon in reflection.
A very sharp image with a considerable depth. It looks like an Amsterdam Canal but that touch oriental architecture indicates that its Chinese.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Love the mirror-reflections of the "sky on fire" on the surface of the river waters, Chris!

Great POV and well clarity with amazing harmony of colors and architecture.
Good use of natural light.
Well done!

Kind regards,

Bom dia Chris,
Focusing primarily on the reflexes was a fine idea, as you explains in your note.
Beautiful picture and high quality as the ones you usually displays.
Have a good day,

Hi Chris ,
Tell us , Chris , it seems You are a very good ... ambassador for China ! Your pictures from this land are often splendid , just like the one shown today .
Congratulations for your " works " in China , and ... hope You a very happy 2012 to You ! Ernest .

Hi Chris,the sunset reflected in the water reminds me very much of Monet's paintings!
I like the way that you have used the width of the canal to draw us into the picture, and led us towards the bridge with its' fine reflection.
Excellent DoF.
Plenty to enjoy in the scene; the tree on the r/h/s looks as if it is either flowering or in leaf?
Tfs, regards Jean.

Olá Chris
Good focus and beautiful place. Good and interesting details...The bridge looks so well and reflections are well done.

Hi Chris,
A great shot. Your series on the canals of this area has been a revelation to me. Interesting reflections in the water.

Bonjour Chris,
Il y a dans ce cliché une lumière créée par le cours d'eau reflètant les nuages éclairés par le soleil et c'est tout simplement divin...
Bien sûr le reflet du pont est superbe mais j'aime trop le reflet des nuages...
