That modern building shot is quite good. It's difficult to make a glass and steel building interesting.

Three very nice shots. I think I like the top one best but the others are good as well.

Cool shots, Evelyn! The building and reflection shot is awesome and I love the Great wall shot!

Love the close up of the Great Wall stones.
And that is quite the reflection shot, too!

You manage to capture quite a number of China's moods--and the incredible span of time the Chinese have been creating technological feats. Great stuff.

Evelyn, I like all three photos; the second of the sky reflected in the building is my favorite - I like the angle you got on it. The third is oh, so Beijing.

What a contrast between the smooth blue of the sky against the very rough stone of the wall.

You managed to make the glass-and-steel building of the "stacked ice cube tray school of architecture" look interesting.
