I saw this last night and thought I commented on it then but, apparently I was so distracted by the amazing photo that I forgot to hit the post key.

Great photo, Kev!

Quite spectacular night scene.

I was in there 2006

I just uploaded a magazine front page which is self explanatory

My 2010 March trip did not go that far north though. I posted something about Toulou in Fujian province

I missed the water canal in the suburb of Shanghai the dwellings of all of them are subject to demolition and dereliction. If I go again I will concentrate on the preservation of the Chinese older structures that I am familiar with.

Interesting, 30 seconds + -3ev. Might be a dumb question, but why did it require -3ev? I understand the 30 seconds needed for a very long exposure, but is the -3ev to keep from overexposing?

Exactly, just trying to hold them back - I don't know if it had any effect in that regard. I could have used Bulb but by using the in-camera length of exposure you get a choice of 20, 25 or 30 secs and maybe the rest of the shot wouldn't have exposed properly if I used 25 or 20 secs.

Interesting shot Daniel - one of those 'typical' street shots I'd look for whilst walking the streets.

2006 (4 - 5 years) is a long time ago in Chinese development terms ! I equate the changing city scenes in modern cities here to a 10:1 ratio with Europe / USA. Changes made in 1 year here equals 10 years there !

The famous Water Towns (I think there are 6 or 7) that you mentioned have undergone an 'upgrade' since you were here last. They were all spruced up for World Expo (73 million visitors) as another place for the tourists to visit. Qi Bao is just 3 miles from where I live - this shot was taken there :

The most famous water town being Zhujiajiao - I took my father there when he visited in the Autumn and he was well impressed - of which I have shots that I haven't processed yet. Thanks for the reminder I'll have to go back and do a thread on the town.

Ha ha - I often do that too, it's age-related John. Thank you for commenting !

Magnificent view, I admire you for still getting this shot on line that early.

I wouldn't have tried.

Cheers

Ronny

I must have missed this post somehow. I love the shot. The colors are exceptional. You caught the reflections beautifully.

It was unfortunate that the weather was poor when I was in Shanghai. Our days and night were so activity filled that I had no time to go out and take the night street shots that I wanted to do so badly. The Chinese use a lot of neon lights that show up so well in night shots.
