[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sunset scenery at the Li River near the famous place shown on the backside of the 20 Yuan bill. The place is about 35km from the town of Yangshuo. If you go there by scooter or car, be warned, despite the dense population, one would not expect, but along the entire way, there is no any possibility to buy gasoline, next gas station in Guilin or Yangshuo.

Hello Peter,

A beautiful contrast picture with the silhouettes on the backside of the 20 Yuan hill.
Also nice reflections in foreground.
Composition and presentation are superb.
An excellent nature and pleasant colours too.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Hello Peter,

Just to look at this photograph brings on a sense of calm and tranquility.
The silhouetted hills look to be wearing a halo and this impression is repeated in the still water.
You don't mention a tripod, maybe you used a rock as a support.

Have a lovely w/e,
Bev :-)

Hello Peter,

I like the halo effect of the sunset over the karst peak. Fantastic symmetrical reflections and good color and sharpness. Tfs!

Hi Peter
The bold silhouettes are wonderful and of course the setting has produced this heavenly warm light providing a visually interesting focus straight onto the main features. Fascinating reflections is a double delight that holds the eyes in firmly there. This is indeed a pleasure to look, Congrats
Best wishes
