I’m pulling out some old photos from my trip to China in 2009, and I’ll show them in sets for each of the city I’ve visited. The first set will be from a side trip to Hangzhou China. This is a really nice vacation city south of Shanghai. The main attraction is West Lake (map) with walking paths and restaurants. The second attraction is a beautiful temple in the mountains called “The peak that flew here from afar”.
For the fourth photo, I’ve included an image of the Gardener’s Boat. Throughout the gardens and parks of China, you could see these boats that were used by gardeners and cleaning crews to keep the areas clean. They were beautiful in their simplicity, and made for some great photos.
Photo 4: The Gardener’s Boat
Second version was modified using the Highlights / Shadows feature of Photoshop CS. I liked the effect, so I added it here.
