Wow, great perspective from those we seen from post cards, Jill. Did you go to Xingping as the landscapes even better. If I go again , I will go to another village , Yang Ti which just open up for tourists. Xingping and Yang Ti are nearby and not far from Yang shou, 100km.

Congratulations on your second place Jill. It is a fabulous image and I thought it would have made first place. I didn't see anything like this on my cruise down the Li and there wasn't the opportunity to hire a boat either. I would be interested in more details on how you took the image.

What a stunning image of the cormorant fisherman on or near the Li River in China!

When we saw the fisherman in China in 2005, it was in total darkness and I had only my 420EX to capture the scene. But my capture was nothing like yours.

Congratulations on the wonderful job you did and the reward for the result.
