    Excellent shots! Goes to show that great photos are truly 80-85% photographer's skill (I think the remaining is 5% serendipity and 10-15% gear).

    I've never been there though I'm half Chinese. I'm really to go visit some day. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Awesome shots! I've always loved geometry in photos, so I find the last one fantastic.

    I like the first one and the last one. Is that from RAW or Jpeg ?

    Thanks to everyone for the nice comments!

    David, to answer your question, they are all from camera jpegs. I did do some tweaking in Photoshop Elements.

    even using older sensor EPL2 get pretty good result.

    (We should spend more money on good quality lens instead of keep chasing
    latest bodies.)
