Chinese Garden by =shadowed-light-waves The suggester writes, "The composition and colors are excellent, I love the tree in the foreground, and everything is so vivid I thought for sure it had been painted! Quite simply, I love it." ( Suggested by ElectrikPinkPirate and Featured by PorcelainPoet )

I've seen this picture many a time on your page, and each time I see it I go "Wow!".

The first thing that really impresses me is the lillys, all leading up in a track to the building.

The tree, framing in the picture with the bush underneath it, that's just really well done.

Then there's the tree hiding part of the building which would probably be in darkness - very good (even though you didn't put it there =p).

And another thing! The sky reflecting in the water. It's so still, with the slight shimmer by the building's reflection. MAGICAL!

But some negatives are due I think! :giggle: There are places, like on the bottom of the sticking out bit on the left, which are overexposed. Could be fixed by shoving the shutterspeed up (or even a tiny edit with the colours in photoshop).

But yeah - I really do like this one. Well done! :glomp:

Renty thingy? For the Chinese Garden? :dance: Nope, I didn't have to do that. I just went and waited until no one was walking by before taking the picture. xD

its so beautiful. i will add this to favorites, everytime i look at it i sort of drown in the beauty of that place, the homefeeling of the buildings and that wonderful little pond of water.

if i get rich some day i would make my house and garden in this style, atleast inspired by this style. though i would like to invent my own style rather than cpying classical chinese style =)

Beautiful level of detail, I love the contrast in texture between the plants and the buildings, and the reflections have been captures beautifully, the water leads the viewer's eyes up towards the building. Quite wonderful.
