Pepyn: Many great pictures Maarten, thanks. Very much my type of photography and subjects! Funny, I was actually supposed to visit Guilin right now (Sept 2012) but plans changed.
Thanks, mate. Yes, that was my impression. The best time to visit Guilin is in June, September, or October. November, if you don't mind a little cooler weather. Try doing some people photography as well. It really adds to the overal impression of a place.
I really enjoyed that article. Many thanks!
I was finally able to return to a location where I took a great, but imperfect shot in 2008 this year and it really paid off.
