I love the contrast between the traditional building beside the peaceful pond and those skyscrapers in the background that bespeak of extreme busy-ness. Perfect.

Double contrast in this image - dark and light/ horizontal and vertical. Clever stuff.

RuneE said...

It gave me a combined feeling of the "modern" world taking over the nice "old" garden. Worked well in b & w.

Don't know why you call your site, a cow's photoblog, but our Monochrome Monday is of COWS!!!!! Your shot is so fabulously, obviously shot in Hong Kong! Love those pictures that give you a sense of place.

I agree with Vincebene: The contrast between modern and tradicional buildings and light.

Carver said...

I love the contrast between the buildings and also the reflection in the water.

Mojo said...

I love the contrast in this -- both the photographic contrast of dark and light and the contrast between the traditional and the modern.

Nice work!

Daryl said...

Contrast of cityscape in the background makes this pond and house even more interesting

Catherine said...

Tradition oppesed to modernism, it have been told previously, but it's all about it, no ?
All these fishes looks giant. Certainly beautiful too in colour.

Linnea W said...

Beautiful contrasts here...and love those fish swimming around - they remind me of sharks...
