I’m just back from China where I spent one month visiting the country with three friends of mine. I shot a lot of pictures, although not as many as I thought I would shoot, and here are the first ones. I have more than 2,000 pictures left to sort, pick and process so you will see more blog entries like this one. The following pictures were taken in Shanghai during the first days of my trip. I used a Canon Digital Rebel XT (EOS 350D in Europe), a Canon 50mm f/1.4 L, a Canon 17-40mm f/4 L, a Canon 70-200mm f/4 L and various filters (neutral gradient ND2, circular polarizing, etc.) I am not showing all the pictures here but they are all available in the China 2006 set on Flickr.
