    This is beautiful. I love the layered look of the composition and the golden tones throughout--even the silhouettes are not quite black but very dark brown.

The colors and depth of tones are absolutely gorgeous! This is a classic view, but I have never seen it with such sense of depth. It is too bad the balloon lettering are perceptible though, this detracts from the pure, zen-like enjoyment. This could be easily addressed.

A pure delight, and I don't say this easily!

Simply stunning! The atmospheric layers and the color would be splendid, but the balloon make it magical. A well deserved POTD!

You know, I do comment on images now and again, usually when I see something that tweeks one of my buttons. Not so this shot. This shot works on so many levels. It is just magical. Fantastic eye. If this isn't in the running for grand prize, it should be.

Your photos are simply breathtaking and this one in particular evokes so many emotions. The early morning light and the peacefulness of the scene is so soothing. I'm not familiar with this place but I've put it on my list of places I should see before I die.
Congratulations!

Min, besides all of the other elements that people mentioned, I also really like the compression of the land... if you don't mind me asking, do you remember what focal length (mm) lens you used on this?

Thanks for the congrats!!!
Hello Paul. I used 70-200 lens and the focal length I used is 200mm . I used Canon 5D so yeah I can reach only 200mm and I shot this from a balcony of a pagoda to get a high angle.
