Yes Sandy,we have a large Chinese community here in Edinburgh.They do like to smoke and they also like to gamble !!
That looks like a petrol can there,so not recommended to smoke round that !!
Good shots.

Excellent work! Really like v1 and also v3.
In Norway too, there seem to be a lot more smokers than here in the US.

V1 Sandy,they look like heavy puffers , Like Ireland and the UK the indoor smoking ban must also apply in that part of China...Paddy

While V1 is an interesting social study, my preference is for the latter two with, perhaps,V2 getting my vote!

#1 has so much atmosphere and says so much about the town in one picture. I can almost smell the smoke (thank goodness I can only 'almost' smell it Smile)

What an interesting picture. And I love the muted colours. V3 gives us a view we wouldn't usually see and is very pretty. A lovely set.

All the men seem to smoke in China even though it costs an arm & a leg to buy the stuff. Fantastic set of images here, expecially the one on the canal in Suzhou, what great reflections in the water, shame the sky was so bland. The men smoking is my favourite, the way you have captured the smoke rising is superb.

Regards Peter

Three wonderful captures, Sandy, each different, but all very pleasing. Think V1 has to be my favourite.

Aaaaw, love those small towns in China, between them full of agriculture fields. And smokes, men, staring at foreigners, tell me about it, haha. Love it... wish I could go there again, mystical orient. What a superb and diverse environment. V2 and V3 are just great!

Good trio but V1 is an absolute standout. Love the processing, slightly desaturated, slightly surreal. My pic of the week so it gets the gong.
26 Aug 2010 2:47AM
I really, really like v1. The atmosphere is fantastic. The processing really suits the photo. I especially LOVE the bicycle. I think a crop of this photo would also make a fantastic photo with just the 3 people sitting down looking at that beautiful bicycle and also that 4th guy crouching down who is also looking at it. I wish this photo was mine.
