    Finally, a shot from East Nanjing Road. Biggest shopping street in the most populous country on the busiest shopping day of the year? They bought the PLA in to help keep order (and anyone walking on the wrong side of the road received a full on b*****ing).

    Lovely set Jason, atmosphere must be very dry to those crisp results....

            Jason, in less than a dozen, a most impressive coverage of Shanghai. I am struck by the crispness of these pictures, what lens did you use, 12-40 pro? I will checkout your Flickr for exif and hopefully it's there!
            My father was Chinese and a supporter of the Kuomintang, so I wouldn't be game to visit. They'd probably detain and bloody well torture me in the chamber of a thousand deaths! I take after my Irish mother

            Edit: Yep, the 12-40 pro, it was.

              Ah yes - founded by Sun Yat Sen early last century and later led by Chian Kai Chek (sp?). Does the Kuomintang still exist in Taiwan (previously Formosa)?

                I doubt it, Jim ... not wishing to antagonise Xi Jinping, the Taiwanese government in exercising the utmost form of political correctness would be at pains to not even think about it.

                  Yes, it was indeed the 12-40. Best lens I've ever owned. I suspect some of the crispness comes from the application of the new Structure slider in Lightroom.

                  When applying for a Chinese visa, they do ask if you have any Chinese ethnicity. My suspicion is they would welcome you with open arms, regardless of whether your father came from (Taiwanese citizens travel too/from China everyday). The civil war remains a sensitive issue though.

                    Structure Slider?? Do you mean the Texture Slider?

                    If not I have not found the Structure slider yet...:-(

                      Oops - yes I meant Texture slider. Seems to do very similar things to the Stricture sliders found in Capture One and Snapseed.

                        Its an excellent tool, I think it must increase contrast between colours......
