Those are awesome photos! The reflection is simply wonderful!

Ive bee in Summer Palace. And since it was Olympic games period then, there were a lot of volunteers (speaking English) who showed me the palace in only 2 hours (which is impossible if you're unfamiliar with the park). I was lucky, I guess.

Great shots.

Haha... I almost posted a very similar bridge today. So classic Chinese, isn't it? And I am sure they purposely designed them to create these wonderful reflections. Nice captures, Evelyn!
