WCKSer,

Brilliant, exciting pictures. What is that charming attractive red dot on the ferry(?)

Good tonality especially in that second photo

Thanks, Torgny! The red dot in the pictures are Chinese 5 stars flag. If you don't know already, all tourism related industries are run by nand owned by the government. The pictures turned out well but could have been better if I brought my L lens. My Sigma 18-250mm did okay but has its limits. There was mist in the lake and the sky was hazy even it was blue. There is a lot pollution in China because of wild spread of construction projects and use of coal fire electricity generation. Xinjiang is supposed to be the remote part of China, I was expecting to see blue sky with white clouds but I didn't.

Thanks, JJ! The Silk Road trip was a pretty rough because of the distance between each scenic spots. There were a lot of getting on and off airplanes and trains. Chinese train stations are a killer because of cigarette smokes. If you are a non-smoke like me, it can be a problem. I am glad that I could make this trip to the far ends of China which are significantly different from other parts of China I have been to.

Lovely lighting in that 2nd capture, but all three are beautiful.
