Spicy yellow by foureyes Spicy yellow by foureyes
Different cultures have different understandings about the meaning of color.
China is a big country with a rich and variegated culture, and a unique appreciation of color.
Most Chinese people like colors like red, green, yellow, etc.
On the other hand they have a negative feeling toward colors like black and white
The color yellow is holy and serious (the color of the imperial dragon is yellow)

I really like what have you written about the colors, I knew something but I didn't think that they could have these two opposites, thank you!;)

And I have to say congratulations, this foto is amazing, incredible job like always :)

I love how this one is upside down, and thanks for pointing out the colors. They also hang white for funerals and red for good luck! =D

yeaaaah in america yellow = EAT ME! hence why mcdonald's colors are yellow and red. SO I HEAR.
squarepush Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2005
good call on the flip. it messes with my mind and i like it.
pwbk Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2005
There's so much going on in this photo, that it's hard to appreciate it fully after just one look. This is extremely well composed and the colours are so vibrant and crisp that they seem almost surreal. :+fav:
kat-k Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2005
Itís as elegant as itís bizarre. I like how not only the reflection in the water sharp is, but how youíve also flipped the photograph so we canít tell which is real and which is the reflection. Itís interesting how youíve included the significance of colours in your description. Excellent work and I hope to see plenty more from your excursion in China. :D
ajulison Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2005
the reflection is just so amazing! there seems to be a sense of an interesting nite life in china captured in this photo.... :) ...*thumbs up*
adrd Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2005
Interesting image.

At first clicking on the thumbnail I thought it was some kind of strange neon lights or firework diplay, but to see that it is something more is a delight.

I kinda wish there was less of the people and just more of the reflection, so it's more prominent and competing with the flipside so much.

Still a great image.
martian-aries Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2005
Oh, my. That is just so lovely, I want to hug it. Fantastic shot! And I love the cultural significance of the colors, too. I think I'll put this on my faves. :)
BluePhoenix4k Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2005
it's called handstand in english too?! well, ok with me because i just did one to have the right view ^^; .
This shot is really nice, just wanted to say that.

For the colours: You can see yellow rooftops on every Building that has a royal meaning, for example the Forbidden City. :)
rwirtz Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2005
Great use of the camera tilt (or could you still call it tilt? :p) and I like the warm feeling this capture emanates.
PatGoltz Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2005  Professional General Artist
I really like this. You posted it upside down. ;)
Caddielook Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
nice trick fliping it. :)
almost got me.... nah!!! :D

great colors and you must have really 4 eyes (glasses not included) to spot all these cool details and angles.
enstillfear Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2005  Professional Photographer
The thing I love about this the most is the light. The reflection of it in perfect harmony.

Ying and Yang.

Works so well Bernie.

I really love the colors again on this one.

Why are the people on the other side of the world upside-down? ;)

The inversion here makes this especially potent. Another way of life, another point of view....

reflection is one of my favorite photographic tools. I find it hard to implement thought. You pull it off well.
syrc Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2005   Photographer
Lovely! Striking colors, and nice reflection.
junglesticks Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2005  Professional Photographer
Am I right in thinking you've turned this picture on it's head and it's the reflection we're looking at the right way up? If so, I love it! The colours are beautifully captured, and the composition is excellent. Very nice work.
