Xian Nu Er
Took this photo at Yu Yuan Gardens here in Shanghai (May 2006). I think I should take another trip there some time in the early evening - you can see at the base of the statue there are faucet nozzles for water sprays. I think there might also be some colourful lights on too when the water comes on.
I used a radial blur (zoom) effect to make the radiating light from the statue. As well, I under exposed the window areas in the background... perhaps I over did it as it now seems to be too dark - I did it because there were people in the scene that make it somewhat distracting from the statue.
