Default The Egg behind the Forbidden City

This is the National Centre for the Performing Arts (The Egg) in Beijing, as seen behind the roofs of the Forbidden City.

My wife and I attended a performance of Turandot there. Spectacular building!

Interesting. Where they singing in Chinese or Italian?

Makes you wonder, when they set up an Italian opera in China...

Mostly chinese talents singing in good Italian. Extraordinary quality, up to date scenografy, etc. A pleasure. China is a big, surprising country.

I really like the balanced composition in this image. The lighting is very nice as well. Any chance you can remove the people in the foreground?

I guess yes, but will lose the sense of scale. This pick is a triumph of pp softwares, cause the original was not even comparable: ACDSee, PSE8, Martins pseudoHDR, Noiseware, etc.
